Developing your ideas: planning with room for opportunity
Possession of a ‘thunderbolt’ idea is not enough to guarantee success in research or business. Planning the practicalities and routes to an end ‘product’ (publications, further funding, marketable items) are a necessary step. Often this planning process brings opportunities and threats to light. This interactive course will use Kanban and the value proposition canvas. With your research project as a starting point, participants will develop their projects further.thinking about adding value at every step

Objectives: by the end of this session participants will have:
* Explored different visual business planning methods
* Mapped out their research project
* Thought about those that their research affects and what affects their research
* Used the value proposition canvas
