Turning sellable products into successful businesses

Workshop and testing programmes

Improving your product or business is hard.  Especially when you are emotionally invested, caught up in the day to day tasks, or are unsure of what to do next.

We have been there.

We bring our skills and experience of delivering workshop and testing programmes to get the best out of your team. Combined with our product and business experience, we improve and test until we have evidence that

  • Product – your product is actually creating value for customers and they are buying in greater quantities (improving the Value Proposition)
  • Business – the product is within a business model that creates profit and is scalable. The cost of production and selling is less that revenues earned  (Business Model design)

Undertake a design and testing programme and do most of your learning before launching your product/business. Compared to launching and then learning, you save time and money – thousands to millions depending on the size of your launch.

Building the foundations for success

Do you have a sellable product or service but are unsure of how to build a successful business to get your product/service to your customers? Or is your business not performing as well as you hoped?

Your Business Model is the blueprint at the heart of business performance. The business model maps out all the internal and external aspects of your business: the channels you sell through, your customers, your activities, your partners and how you solve your customers’ problems. Each has a financial implication. To improve business performance significantly, you will need to change one or more aspects of your business model.

Our workshop programmes leverage your team’s knowledge of the business and the market to explore and design business model options that can be tested. We undertake a design, test, learn & adapt cycle until we have a stronger, more competitive business model to underpin improved business performance.
