Corporate entrepreneurship needs an awakening. Large organisations are so focused on sustaining their current business models that they have lost the art of seeking transformative opportunities through new business models.
Venture Strategy is a structured way to help search for and build new business models. We help you adopt the mindset of an entrepreneur, to bring courage and vision to exploring new growth opportunities and strategically advise you on which ventures to pursue.
We take a radically different approach to developing new ventures. We help you run them like ‘internal start-ups’ with minimal time, budget and resources so that your staff develop the agility and courage of a start-up founder. As a result, your staff become gamechangers and founders who create ready-to-scale business models that unlock new opportunities for your organisation.
Participants will form SPRINT TEAMS an tackle real current business problems to solve. The prototype will be built and tested during the program, which ends with the results presentations. Action learning at its best.
WHAT IS A SPRINT?
The sprint is a fast-forward move to your future and back. You craft a first answer to a critical business question through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with real customers. It’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, strategic innovation, scrum and design thinking —packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.
WHY DO WE CRAFT SPRINT TEAMS?
Working together in a sprint, you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single week. Instead of waiting to launch a product to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get immediate clear data testing a realistic prototype. The sprint gives your teams a superpower: You can fast-forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions, before making any expensive commitments.
We will give you the opportunity to learn to work in a team in a very intense, self-organized, impactful process on a problem that is really relevant for market success.
We can guarantee that for you it will be an inspiring yet challenging process. And, real learning starts where theory and practice come together!
