Online Event: International Innovation Expert - Testing Business Ideas

Testing Business Ideas using Experimentation Talk Summary David Bland was approached by Alex Osterwalder (creator of the Business Model Canvas) to co-author a new book about 'Testing Business Ideas'. https://www.amazon.com/Rapid-Testing-Business-Ideas-Customer/dp/1119551447 They had both observed a gap between sketching out an idea and finding practical ways to rapidly test it. Building on Business Model Generation, Lean Startup and Value Proposition Design books, they decided to curate a list of experiments for people who are stuck making progress on their idea. Building on the foundation established by Joeri (Yuri) Timmermans (BIGJUMP) and John Stathakis in the joint meetup on the 23rd July, where the concepts of waste, MoSCoW and MVP were introduced, the purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate why you should test your ideas using experimentation and how you can create experiment sequences to test the desirability, viability and feasibility of your business idea. This interactive talk David will apply the principle of "Learning whilst doing" to demonstrate the concepts of the book and facilitate an online exercise for creating your own experiment sequences.
