Why do we plan? Does the traditional planning process make sense for disruptive new ideas? It doesn’t, but it’s still extremely important to remain purposeful and plan-driven.
In this module, you’ll learn how to structure and manage innovation in a way that minimizes waste and maximizes successful outcomes. We’ll use the Business Model Canvas, Lean Startup and a ‘lean financial model’ as our core tools in this session.
- How to use the Business Model Canvas to help teams and upper management arrive at an explicit, shared understanding of what’s important
- How to structure validation criteria that keep you moving forward but don’t create a false sense of certainty (that will later take the project off track)
- How to formulate a set of financials/business case for your idea without wasting time on details you don’t yet understand
- Best practices in structuring disruptive projects in the enterprise
