GMBA70-306: Business Planning for Entrepreneurial Ventures Part A


Entrepreneurial thought and action are increasingly necessary skills in the design, development and execution of any business. They are particularly valuable in the process of business planning for both current and future ventures. The objective of this subject is to introduce you to the fundamentals of entrepreneurial management as well as the mindsets, tools, resources and critical action steps that can (and should) be applied to the process of business planning. This is an interactive and highly experiential subject. Your learnings will be based on readings, case studies and in-class discussions that will present a series of concepts, frameworks and heuristics to help you understand the process, challenges and opportunities of managing entrepreneurially in organisations of all sizes and types. In a collaborative team environment, you will use your learnings to identify a business opportunity of your choice and develop a lean business plan. You will also outline the next steps and stages you will need in order to develop a comprehensive plan (which you will complete in Business Planning for Entrepreneurial Ventures Part B).
