OUR PROGRAMMES

While we prefer to tailor-make training experiences to match the client's needs and objectives, we do have a list of off-the-shelf courses to choose from.

INTREPRENEURSHIP

Bringing lean start-up thinking into your organisation.


The Intrepreneurship programme taps into the essence of what it takes to be an entrepreneur, and harnesses it for the success of the organisation.

It follows the outline in the book The Innovator’s Method, and localizes it to the South African context.

We answer questions such as: How do we know whether this idea is worth pursuing? Have we found the right solution? What is the best business model for the new offering.

  • Leadership in the age of uncertainty
    The scale and speed at which innovative business models are transforming industry landscapes today is unprecedented – Oestwalder
  • Insight: Savour the surprise
    If you want to innovate, savour the surprise. Too often we overlook the surprises – Clark
  • Problem: Discover the Job-To-Be-Done
    No problem. No opportunity. No one will pay you for solving a non-problem - Khosla
  • Solution: Prototype the minimum viable product
    If you can increase the number of experiments from 100 to 1000, you dramatically increase the innovations you produce - Bezos
  • Business Model: Validate the Go-to-market strategy
    The innovation itself is not the goal, implementing it is - Toefy
