Business Planning Tools - 01/23/20 - C0019 

Fail to Plan? Plan to Fail? Use an easy, visual tool to plan!

Entrepreneurs just starting, existing businesses adding products or services, or industries undergoing significant change can all use easy visual tools to assist in planning. This class introduces tools which help:

  • define why you want to go into business
  • why you’re in business
  • what customer problems you are trying to solve.

You can then build a business plan for funding, a marketing plan, a product development plan, an operating/management plan, etc.  

The Value Proposition Canvas and Business Model Canvas (Alex Osterwalder, Strategyzer) are easy to use, one page visual tools which bring clarity to your business planning.
