This curriculum is designed by successful entrepreneurs to answer the following questions that you should be asking about your business:

  • What does the ideal solution do? Problems it solves, capabilities it will have, description for each capability, and value derived by solving each problem.
  • What are the differences between what your company does today and what the ideal solution looks like.
  • What is the addressable market opportunity? The addressable market opportunity normally includes: Total market size, potential market size, customer profiles, and solution buying patterns.
  • Who are your competitors in the market and where does your company fit in, assuming you can deliver on the promise?
  • What is the solution plan?
  • What are the potential packaging and pricing strategies for your product?
  • What does the sales model look like? Most product managers or marketers overlook this aspect but it is important to understand the sales model as your product grows from its introductory phase, through its growth phase, and all the way up to market maturing and being recognized as a brand.
  • What are the timelines for your solution and market growth, including your plan to build a product, staffing and growing a team, a customer acquisition plan, and a sales model and enablement?
