We are creating a process for aspiring intrapreneurs to hone their skills through intensive practice, so that when opportunities arise they know they are sharp enough to slice through whatever comes at’em. we call it Sharpn.
We have developed an event called the SPARK which gives aspiring intrapreneurs the tools and skills needed to validate ideas. We then provide them with an introduction to systems thinking. We also help them build communication skills and realize the importance of leadership. The most important part of the day is showing them how to overcome the fear of failure while forging a strong positive mindset.
The event is aimed at creating a challenging fast paced environment that focuses on the importance of teamwork to accomplish set goals.
We have divided the day into two phases: In the first phase we have participants run through 11 tasks: 4 individual tasks that have to completed under a minute), 2 (paired tasks” “), and 2 (team tasks”5 min”).
The 2nd half of the day is all about validation, each team runs through our ‘half baked’ ideation exercise. Once they have come up with an idea that they are excited about they then do 2 rounds of validation exercises. The first round is all about iteration and the second is a final push to test for market acceptance
