To be innovative, you need to be able to think differently.
In this unit, you’ll learn about the thinking tools that entrepreneurs use to create innovative products and build a thriving business around them. You’ll learn what it means to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset, how to tackle problems and make decisions with limited information and how to maintain a customer-centric focus throughout the life-cycle of a product or business.
By the end of this unit, you will have learned some of the fundamental theories and thinking tools that entrepreneurs and innovators use every day, as well as learning about the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs and how to cultivate this mindset.
