You will have the best experience with this program if you use a real project that you are working on. However, we can work with you to create a sample project if you do not have one. The ideal project to work on is one where: 1) you have identified risky assumptions or hypotheses that would impact your business, 2) there are questions in your business model you don’t know how to answer and 3) you don’t know how to get the data to answer your questions or de-risk your business.
You do not need to share company secrets to get feedback. No direct competitors will be allowed in the same group, and you can request private feedback from the facilitator under NDA if needed.
Our program covers both financial and mission-impact models, using innovation principles, methods, and tools that teach you to be a better decision-maker whether you are for-profit, non-profit, or an impact-driven government agency.
Some basic knowledge of lean startup and user experience are strongly recommended for this program. You should have ideally identified several areas of your business model that are uncertain or unknown. Those are the areas which you will design experiments to find data. It is also helpful, but not necessary, to have a Business Model Canvas or Mission Impact Canvas for your innovation project.
