Summary – Course description

After completion of the course, students are expected to understand and be able to use a number of very practical methods to manage innovative projects within a company or organization and/or to pursue their own intra/entrepreneurial endeavours following new approaches. 

This subject is derived from the idea that the new methods originated in the entrepreneurial arena in the last decade can be extremely useful for managers and intrapreneurs. These methods facilitate a better understanding of the customer and an ability to rapidly adapt any theoretical project to realistic metrics. These new methods acknowledge the fact that innovation and business models are created in a learning process, and that innovation can be “engineered” to increase the chances of success. 

The goal of this course is to develop a real intra-entrepreneurial project that complies with the needs of today’s society by working on multidisciplinary teams. This practical course will follow the “Lean Startup” method with additionally selected course-related content.

The course consists of several parts; creative (design) thinking to look for ideas, re-shaping of ideas for them to become project proposals, value proposition, experiment design, prototyping and use of tools and methodologies such as business model canvas and lean start-up. The course will emphasize the practical side of the tools and will introduce related key concepts on the innovation / intra / social / entrepreneurial ecosystems with a particular focus on Spain and the opportunities related to China / Shanghai. 

Participants will learn how to prototype using different tools. Furthermore, the course will provide the opportunity for each team to work with an experienced mentor. Participants will also have access to exclusive events related to entrepreneurship, where they can meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs and innovators

During the course, students will team-work in a practical project of their own that will be presented, discussed and evaluated in a final pitch session.
