Throughout this bonus material, you will learn a structured process to bring your breakthrough ideas to life. The module covers the origins of the innovation process, examples of how to apply it, and an interactive exercise that will walk you through the process templates. Together with Kaihan and the power of these new tools, you can bring your best concepts to market in the most time and capital-efficient way.
In this step, you’ll envision the future, analyze current trends, and define your long-term vision to then determine your short-term strategic plan. The goal is to have a focused idea of what you’re headed toward with crystal clear context.
Here you will break down your problem and analyze your key leverage points. You’ll not only identify what your strategy should focus on, but analyze your weak points as well. You’ll achieve this by using the 8Ps.
Generate countless (200+) potential strategies for your organization. You’ll end up with three phases of priorities. These ideas will be developed through understanding and implementing key strategic narratives used by top competitors from various industries.
At this point, you’ll take all of the ideas you generated and sort through them, categorize them, and form a plan for which ones are worth pursuing. The tools in this section will guide you in this process step-by-step. By the end of this section, you should have a solid plan in place with your best strategies identified and ready to be implemented.
In this final section, you will set up your plan for success by ensuring all your stakeholders are aligned. You’ll do this by identifying your stakeholders, crafting an effective communication strategy, and evaluating your plan from all perspectives to maximize buy-in.
