Comment on Value Proposition Interface Canvas by Amancio Bouza http://api-as-a-product.com/articles/value-proposition-interface-canvas-api/#comment-12 Fri, 02 Mar 2018 22:37:36 +0000 http://api-as-a-product.com/?p=560#comment-12 I’m happy that you bring up Manfred Bortenschlager’s API Model Canvas. Thank you for that, Mark. The API Model Canvas is an adaptation of Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas. Osterwalder developed also the Value Proposition Canvas to guide the creation of a value proposition. It is used in conjunction with the Businesss Model Canvas and other strategic management and execution tools. Likewise, our Value Proposition Interface Canvas can be used in conjunction with Manfred Bortenschlager’s API Model Canvas.
May be it makes sense to add this valuable hint in the chapter and provide a pointer to the API Model Canvas. Nevertheless, we use the Value Proposition Interface Canvas in conjunction with the API Product Vision Board, which is inspired by Roman Pichler’s Product Vision Board approach.

At this point I like to mention two other API related canvas:

The Microservice Design Canvas is inspired by the Lean Canvas. It helps you to specify a microservice using customer’s tasks and technical dependencies as context. As Rajat Vijayvargiya mentioned:
“Leveraging Microservices Design Canvas (by Matt McLarty) IN COMBINATION with the Value Proposition Interface Canvas ( by Amancio Bouza) can be a great framework to effectively manage Outcome to Solution alignment aspect of an enterprise’s API Strategy.”

The API Value Proposition Canvas is also an adaptation of Osterwalder’s Value Proposition Canvas and works well with the API Model Canvas. The differences to the VPI Canvas are on a conceptual level. The VPI Canvas provides you a tool to leverage systematically the value proposition (pain relievers, gain creators) of your company’s products & services via an API or rather VPI. We believe that APIs are about an interface to a value proposition, not to an application.

I hope I could clarify the relation between the VPI Canvas and the API Model Canvas which can be used in conjunction.

Comment on Value Proposition Interface Canvas by Mark Cheshire (@MarkCheshire) http://api-as-a-product.com/articles/value-proposition-interface-canvas-api/#comment-11 Fri, 02 Mar 2018 19:20:45 +0000 http://api-as-a-product.com/?p=560#comment-11 It seems that it would be good to research a bit more prior art in this area. I believe the originator for the idea of applying the Osterwalder Business Model Canvas to APIs was Manfred Bortenschlager at APIdays in 2015:
https://www.slideshare.net/3scale/api-model-canvas-apidays-mediterranea-2015

Subsequently those ideas were referenced and credited to Manfred in a presentation at NordicAPIs:
