Pressure test your business model

Gisma - Business School

Technologies and customer demands change faster than at any time in the past.

While business plans are often seen as great execution documents in sufficiently stable environments, entrepreneurs favor experimentation processes over planning to deal with today’s complexity. However, many corporations and financial investors still require fairly detailed planning documents to facilitate their decision making. While a business concept – for example as Business Model Canvas – might describe the initial set of assumptions to test validate and experiment your way to a successful startup, it might not be sufficient to receive financial backing and stakeholder support. Today’s organizations develop new innovation skills and tools to improve, transform or disrupt existing models, they also need to adjust their mindset and improve the way they model the financial impact of new ventures.


This program is designed to equip innovators with the context, knowledge and tools to deal with the increased complexity in today’s fast paced innovative markets and the financial impact of strategic business model scenarios. This short programme will run from the 14th to 15th of November.
