Description: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” That axiom is drilled into every student, athlete, and entrepreneur the world over. The question is, what constitutes a plan? Is a plan a product – or has it become a process in a lean startup world where rapid prototyping and testing has replaced and detailed steps to curry funding. In this course, planning is equated with learning. Notably, the professors dismiss the proverbial 50 page business plan in lieu of a model that “organizes the key assumptions determining what value the business will offer to whom, and how it will make money.” As part of this course, students will learn the following:

  • The process and milestones inherent to new venture development.
  • Strategies to “think different” and create models and solutions that differentiate them from competitors.
  • Mindset needed to step into customers’ shoes and understand their goals, day-to-day routines and pain points so they can prepare value propositions that will differentiate a solution and entice a customer to action.
  • Best practices in engaging with the marketplace to better understand the concept and test its viability, uniqueness, and drawing power.

Review: No reviews.
