Training Methodology

This training seminar will use an inductive-rational approach for examining the entire breadth and depth of the new venture development process and entrepreneurial mindset for creativity, innovation, and risk assessment.  The main focus is “hands-on” doing all the original research, analysis, review, and assessment while methodically building-developing a comprehensive business plan that includes all the key facets and decision making for a successful new venture launch or corporate initiative.

Organisational Impact

Attendees will have immediate Return-On-Investment (ROI) for developing value-added to their own ideas / innovations for a proposed new product-service venture or corporate initiative. These skills, models, research-analysis, feasibility, assessment, and presentation/critique competencies will translate seamlessly to their current workplace, colleagues, and teams. The Return-On-Investment (ROI) is that attendees will be ready to demonstrate these tangible skills and competencies:

  • Review, interpret, and critique any type / form of proposed product-service innovation
  • Design and execute an original business plan
  • Perform detailed pro-forma analysis of markets, competition, business model specs, and financial expectations for a start-up business or corporate initiative
  • Organize and manage multiple levels of tasks, projects, deadlines, and planning schedules to bring a proposed new product-service innovation from conceptual pre-launch ideation to fully functioning, up-and-running business entity

Personal Impact

Attendees will further their own professional development by: 

  • Understanding key terminology and concepts inherent in all forms of new venture development
  • Gaining an entrepreneurial mindset and perspective on creativity, innovation, and risk
  • Enhancing their presentation and critique capabilities in evaluating new venture ideas

  • Individual entrepreneurs who already have an existing company and want to gain broader and deeper understanding of the new venture development process
  • Individual entrepreneurs who would like to plan / prepare to launch their own new venture
  • Corporate product-service development professionals who want to bring a greater degree of entrepreneurial perspective to designing and launching new product-service initiatives
  • Individual investors who want to expand their understanding of the key facets that determine “best” new venture opportunities and funding types (debt vs. equity)
  • Research & Development / Product Development Teams looking to infuse an entrepreneurial creative-innovative mindset to their ideation, feasibility, and assessment processes
  • Business Development Directors looking to proactively be the drivers and initiators of new product-service opportunities within the corporation
