Whether aspiring entrepreneurs launching new businesses or managers focused on transforming existing businesses, `From Innovation to Impact` provides students with the tools and hands-on engagement to go beyond “thinking big” to "making an impact". This topic examines two critical factors in moving innovations towards market and user adoption: 1) an agile, "go-to-market" strategy 2) a scalable, repeatable business model. Beginning with a self-selected, real opportunity, students work towards maximising market adoption and impact, developing an appropriate and innovative business model and commercialisation roadmap. Combining business model and go-to-market planning, students create an individual lean and agile `playbook` which captures agile strategy and planning, defines possible decision pathways and identifies potential response scenarios, in advance. This provides students with a sound foundation for evidence-based decision making and a compelling case for investment.
This topic aims challenges students to act as informed decision makers and agile business planners. It builds students' capacity to apply various research and analytic tools, including financial tools and models for business model innovation, to improve business decisions in rapidly changing environments. While this topic includes exploration of theory, it is project driven and laser-focused on practical steps to shepherd each student’s idea from concept to commercialisation. Students receive instruction on how to optimise and manage the systems, processes and people required to execute against business objectives and strategies. They will be expected to apply these skills directly to the creation of their unique business model and roadmap, working individually and in project teams.
