Developing Your Ideas: Planning with Room for Opportunity
Possession of a ‘thunderbolt’ idea is not enough to guarantee success in research or business. Planning the practicalities and routes to an end ‘product’ (publications, further funding, marketable items) are a necessary step. Often this planning process brings opportunities and threats to light. This interactive course will use the popular business model canvas combined with your research project as a starting point to develop your ideas further.
Aims: To explore the use tools from the world of the business to plan and develop your research project. These tools will help identify stakeholders, map out the possible impact of a project and identify possible road blocks.
Objectives: by the end of this session participants will have:
• Explored different visual business planning methods
• Mapped out their research project
• Thought about those that their research affects and what affects their research
• Used the value proposition canvas.
