This course will provide SMEs with the tools and ways of thinking to be able to integrate entrepreneurial thinking in to their creative thought process. It will ensure SMEs have a process for innovation that leads to uncover the financial and social value potential of their idea.

The course will ensure that participants leave with a business model for an existing idea together with confidence to use the tools introduced. SMEs will be introduced to: “Value Modelling” a technique that will uncover all the potential assets and value creation of the idea, the team/individual or the organisation. Through this, a quick financial model will emerge.

Additionally a visual exercise on mapping relationships will ensure that participants gain confidence in determining the whole value chain and ensuring that key relationships with customers/clients/audiences as well as those in the supply chain can be built and sustained. Participants will be shown how to place their idea in the complex and rapidly changing environment to maximum benefit.
