Contents and sequence

  • Objective

    This training course teaches essential and strictly practical expertise and methods for developing innovative, user-centred products and services. The objective is to strengthen your ability to identify and evaluate business opportunities, to design innovative solutions, and to develop the business models which are a prior condition for your commercial success. The concepts, methods and processes on which the business-design approach is based can be experienced directly in this course and applied practically.

  • Business Design

    Business design is the holistic identification, development and realisation of sustainable future business through well-tried principles and methods drawn from design and strategic management.
    Business design will help you to work on the challenges of your innovation in a structured way. This includes a comprehensive understanding of market requirements and customer needs, time and cost effective implementation, handling complexity, risks and uncertainties, and releasing creativity.

  • Approach and learning method

    Participants in this practical training will become active themselves and experiment with the methods and tools of business design, such as customer journey and persona, business-model canvas, hypothesis canvas, and minimum viable product.
    In the practice stages small groups of participants will be supervised and coached intensively by experienced speakers and coaches. Through managed self-reflection, what has been learned will be transferred into entrepreneurial practice.
