Course description

At the masterclass, you learn to design value propositions that customers want - by focusing on what matters most. You will understand the high-value customer jobs you should focus on by adopting a fast cycle of testing value propositions and getting feedback through accurate metrics. 

With an outcome-oriented mindset with trust in the creative process that serves the strategy, you will learn to create solutions that consider multiple customer needs. You will learn how to spark an idea, nurse it into a great value proposition, and mature it into a business model. As a result, you will feel more confident in connecting value proposition creation with business execution. 

While customer and outcome-oriented value propositions are foundational, you still need to go deeper. Strategy is about finding a proposition that your competition either cannot or is not willing to copy. You will learn to see, discover, and define practical differentiation, which allows you to stand out from the crowd. 

The training is online training once per week or bi-weekly for four to six weeks. One session lasts 4 hours at a time. In between training sessions, there are two clinics, which are sparring sessions where groups present group work and collect feedback from trainers and leadership.
