No Boundaries Academie

October 21 | 2020

No-Boundaries Academy successfully acquired ProvenModels.


ProvenModels' Digital Model Book presents digitalised management models categorised in a clear and consistent standardized information structure to improve the usability and reusability of management literature. Management models are important generalisations of business situations when applied in context and are powerful tools for solving business issues. Users can quickly sift through our Book's digital knowledge base and locate appropriate concepts for their assignment. Members are able to incorporate our adjustable Microsoft PowerPoint or Excel versions of models directly into their presentations or proposals to save them valuable time and effort.

The Digital Model book is an information service co-written, in part, by thought leaders at business schools and rigorously reviewed by academic scholars to confirm that each submitted management model has been scientifically tested and in use by domain experts today.

We will further work on cooperation with Universities. Our first cooperation is with Sogang University MOT, Seoul, South-Korea.
