Organizational Intelligence can play an important role in developing business values and purpose. Understanding the obstacles surrounding an organization helps us to take action to correct issues that may arise. In this paper, I will briefly touch on Organizational Intelligence, Business Model Logic, and Bloom’s Taxonomy.

The knowledge that is created by the Business Model can be very valuable when suggestions are made for change or improvements want to be made. The job of top executives in industry is to come up with ideas for growth opportunities through product innovation. The framework that an organization creates can help them express their unique values in a way that is useful to employees and consumers.
The organization will use the Business Model to help create value, through a chosen system of inputs, business activities, outputs and outcomes. The framework that will be created will help promote alignment of the external and internal logics.

The publication of Bloom’s original Taxonomy of Educational Objectives in 1956 presented a one-dimensional explanation of how humans gained new knowledge. It proposed a progression of knowledge that saw a learner move from lower to higher levels of learning –knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation (Bloom, 1956).
Business models can play a great role in explaining a firm’s performance. The Business Model can be a unifying building block for a competitive advantage and an organizations performance. Looking at Bloom’s Taxonomy and utilizing it for an organization Business Model we should break it into categories: Creating, evaluating, analyzing, applying, and understanding. Creating is generating new ideas, products, or ways or viewing things. Evaluating is justifying a decision or course of action. Analyzing is breaking information into parts to explore understandings and relationships. Applying is using information in another familiar situation. Understanding is explaining...
