The course will allow for learners to work in a team to investigate new business formats and a feasibility assessment for a potential knowledge-based product or service opportunity identified by the team. This might be undertaken for a new income stream within an existing business or for a new enterprise. The core course material will focus on Refining an Idea, Research and Presenting the Plan. All learners will be involved with refining the idea and individual learners will be responsible for doing market research, building a finial plan and creating an operational plan.
The aim of this course is to provide the learner with the knowledge and skills to research a market and plan a development strategy such as the launch of a new business model, new enterprise, product or service line. Learners will need to fully develop and pitch their business development strategy.
