  • To grow our product and develop leadership in every experience we have to raise TNs in meaningful industries where the EP has an impact on the world. How do we do that?
  • If you had 1000 AIESEC trainees coming to your country, in which industries would you want to place them? Because their experience would develop leadership. Because they would make an impact on society. Because our members would see their contribution to society.
  • Market Segmentation Process Relevant Market Segment In what industry can you develop leaders who will have a positive impact on society? Industry Talent Needs What are the talent needs in that industry? JD that Develops Leadership What can the EP do that will develop leadership and serve the industry’s talent needs? Supply Do we have the EP supply to fill this need? Where are the EPs from, and how can we match with them? BO Alignment How do we align our marketing and TC to sell and deliver these experiences on a major scale?

  • Recommended purposeful gip strategies {EDUCATION} Bring interns to deliver better education in private and public sectors for local teachers to gain new methods and practices of teaching to continue improving the quality of education in their institutes. Industries: Public & private Institutions of higher education, government or independent kindergarten, primary and secondary schools public schools, private institutions offering different levels of language education Product: Teaching & Language Education {INNOVATIVE/SOCIAL ORIENTED STARTUPS} Bring interns to help issue oriented startups to optimize their processes, expand abroad and attract new investors to grow their purpose-driven businesses. Industries: StartUps IT solutions for society needs digital healthcare, mobile education, smart cities; venture funds. Product: IT, Marketing, BA
  • Market product strategy 1 {EDUCATION} Traditional formats of education which don’t meet youth needs today can be improved with the help of AIESEC trainees. They will help to improve teachers’ qualifications to deliver relevant content of the subject in the right way. It’ll cover the lack of quality of education and mismatches between skills demanded by the labour market. English language teaching will help the population and especially youth to increase their mobility and access to the globalized world. Industries: Public & private Institutions of higher education, government or independent kindergarten, primary and secondary schools public schools, private institutions offering different levels of language education Product: Teaching & Language Education
  • What entities would you recommend implementing this strategy? The Caucasus – Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia Western CIS – Belarus, Republic of Moldova, Russia, Ukraine Central and South-Eastern Europe – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia Central Asia – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan And Turkey
  • The evidence for this strategy Historical consequences Over the past two decades, youth in the CEECIS (Central & Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States) region have endured substantial political instability, and at times armed conflict, that have rocked their communities and families and shaped their education experiences. Inequality of education Significant inequalities persist across and within countries in terms of access to education, learning outcomes, quality of education and mismatches between skills demanded by the labor market and those of jobseekers, especially young labour market entrants. Lack of professionalism Youth state that teachers need to be trained regularly to refresh their skills and improve the implementation of education reforms. REPORTS ANALYSIS
  • How much money does government spend on education development as percentage of GDP CEECIS governments need to adapt their education systems and policies to future needs and realities: bring more practical oriented education and balance in actual spending on it to get better outcome.
  • One of the highest unemployment rate of the world in CIS demonstrates clear mismatch between skills demanded by the labor market and education’s quality
  • Government policy There’s a general trend among post soviet countries’ government for globalization of the society. Example: New government language policies The Russian government—both federal and local is making a concerted effort to boost the country’s English skills. President of Tatarstan Republic: “If teachers have excellent level of English, then their students will too. As for officials, they must speak English in the modern world” Globalization of Russian universities as a criteria to be included in rankings.
  • Success | Experience AIESEC Russia 2012  2013 158% growth in RE teaching (33  85) Market segment: private linguistic centers Product: Language (English) education
  • PRODUCT Access to an international talent pool of high-potential students or fresh graduates who have background of linguistic, foreign language teaching or necessary subject master degree and teaching experience, relevant to the educational institute. School/C ollege English Teaching Other Languages Teaching Subjects Teaching Children Education
  • Industry needs • • • • • People with the right accent, vocabulary, and grammatical knowledge Ability to deal with & interact with specific age groups of students People with the specific subject/laguage knowledge/degree People with teaching expereince Teachers available for shorter and/or longer working duration Benefits to sell • • • • • New educational methods and initiatives developed by young specialist together and for your teachers  increasing the quality of education Creation of international dynamic learning environment for students  faster and better learning Competeive advantage on the market  attraction of new customers Specialists with diverse background and knowledge of specific languages or subjects delivered in english Affordable price, short or long term support of your projects from AIESEC
  • Possible objections from the company We want to have native speaker as an english • According to our practice non native speakers can teach english better, because they learned how to do it studying language as well teacher from US or Uk, for • Other countries send for teaching internships young teachers with example • • experience and academic background who professionally knows how to do it while specialists from US/UK don’t usually have teaching background or experience All AIESEC trainees go through triple selection procedure and prove their competencies according to the working field they apply for We have several CVs (or video CVs) to demonstrate the candidates from other countries. Check it please  If the intern doesn’t speak our language at all how will he communicate with Usually students start to speak english much faster with those who cant students? explain anything in native language. At the beginning it’s hard for them, but later gives better effect.
  • Supply from the Network Teaching sub-product Country suppliers for Teaching & Language education Poland Brazil India Indonesia Romania Mexico Russia Ukraine …
  • Ideal Job Description - Design the education course in advance (within the first week of internship or as a pre-assignment) instead of just delivering.(define objective, structure and key outcomes in this stage) - Developing the course content completely after designing the structure.(Product full design concept) – (Sensing calls with some students, developing the right content) - Delivery of course content (understanding of target audience profile, learning style and customizing to the same) - Assessment tests and ensuring transfer of learning.(tests to ensure learning and implementing different methods of learning transfer) - Preparation and delivery of classes/open spaces for teachers to share & discuss the methods and experience of teaching - Feedback (from student to trainee, from supervisor/teachers to trainee and back)
  • Leadership development of the trainee By sharing own teaching methods and experience trainee influences to change educational process in school Challenging environment and JD of teaching without local language knowledge makes intern go through very intensive outer & inner journey Trainee contributes to make long-term impact as the educational process changer as well as short term for students to learn better now
  • During implementation be careful of • Policy of public educational institutions about inviting foreign teachers • How to deliver right product value to stakeholders (interns are seeking for professional development, support and supervision form the company and contributes to the goals’ of your organisation) • Supply & Demand Management (Don’t promise native speakers – know how to work with this obstacles. Prepare Cy2Cy cooperations in advance) • Don’t defocus on several industries at the same time if you don’t have enough capacity • Check previous experience of work with educational institutions (maybe you were partnering in terms of iGCDP product. Define the value and benefits to sell them iGIP)
  • Market product strategy 2 {INNOVATIVE/SOCIAL ORIENTED STARTUPS} Development of StartUps plays significant role in lots of CEE countries economies growth. Innovations and tech products have huge potential to improve their business processes, be expanded abroad with the help of AIESEC interns as well as to become more attractive for new investors. Many of them are based on unique scientific researches with idea to solve exact issue of the society. The increase in CEE venture investments in 2011 was driven predominantly by startup stage investments, which grew year-on-year by 85% in amount and 76% in number of companies. Industries: StartUps  IT solutions for society needs  digital healthcare, mobile education, smart cities; venture funds. Product: IT, Marketing, BA
  • What is? {INNOVATIVE STARTUP} Its core business consists of innovative goods or services of high technological value {SOCIAL ORIENTED STARTUP} same requirements that apply to ordinary startups It shall not result from the merger, division or transfer of business from a going company 30% of its costs are related to R&D OR at least one third of the team is made up of people who either hold a PhD or are PhD candidates or have conducted research for at least three year OR it is the owner or the licensee of a patent. operates in some specific areas working on social issues (education, welfare, healthcare, protection of environment) its key job must have a considerable social value
  • What entities would you recommend implementing this strategy? Bulgaria Poland Croatia Romania Czech Russia Republic Serbia Estonia Slovakia Hungary Slovenia Lithuania Turkey
  • The evidence for this strategy REPORTS ANALYSIS|2012-2013 Local (in Central Eastern Europe and Turkey) SMEs have innovated and exported successfully. Several local SMEs have shown that successful innovation and export is possible, despite poor brand recognition abroad. Such firms may provide a standard for others to follow. Innovation is essential for sustainable growth. The impact of innovation is shown to be particularly positive on growth for medium-income countries. Most of the innovation in the CEE region in the past two decades has come not from locally owned firms, but from the investments of multinational companies (MNCs), on which local firms have come to rely for new ideas and technology.
  • The evidence for this strategy Table shows that in lots of CEE countries respective innovation performance (according to Economist Intelligence Unit’s Innovation model) is higher than average in EU which demonstrates a high potential direction of its development in the nearest future
  • REPORTS ANALYSIS|2012-2013 Talent-related issues are a major concern. Finding the right staff has been made harder by the persistence of a “brain drain” from the region. We see that innovative companies are not satisfied with the quality of academic centers in their own country and most likely would experience work with foreign specialist (responses by CEE companies)
  • Slovenia is one of CEE countries with high potential of innovative start up growth. At the same time facing issues of being not well supported by government or local venture funds. It may be a point for AIESEC to propose a GIP for startups to attract or search for venture capitalists abroad.
  • The evidence for this strategy A good example is the so called “Estonian mafia” that resulted from the acquisition of Skype by Microsoft. Founders and early employees of the company made a fortune, but re-invested their money in new startups that helped the tech community in Estonia to grow. Today there are hundreds of startups in Estonia, a country of 1.3 million, working to gain market traction.  Challenges of the region: • conservative mentality that is adverse to risk • physical distance from main tech hubs that offer high value-add resources (investors, clients, mentors, advisors) Quality entrepreneurial events attract global thought leaders. “There are a lot of good initiatives facilitating the development of the entrepreneurial culture,” said Tschas. Examples include Pioneers Festival in Vienna, the Singularity University European Summit in Budapest, How to Web in Bucharest, the Shift Split in Croatia and the Kairos Society, a global student-run entrepreneurial organisation.
  • PRODUCT Global internship in a host organization, through which a high-motivated young person contributes to the goals of the organization, completes a job description requiring related expertise or skills, and receives supervision and evaluation on his or her professional development.
  • Industry needs • • • People with entrepreneurial mindset, project management experience, goal oriented (marketing, advertising, project management) People with specific language and market knowledge to expand to the new country (marketing experience preferred) Specialist with exact background & experience to help with process optimization (IT talents: website development/management, mobile applications, portals development, programming) Benefits to sell • • • • • Support of the company in expanding its reach locally or internationally with needed qualified talents  easier and faster Process optimization and international perspective from highly motivated talents Interns participation in long term or short term projects Affordable price International working environment and staff motivation
  • Possible objections/challenges from the company Financial disability to participate in program How can you guarantee that my business will be expanded to the new country market? Create special financial model for their participation, show the possible impact of the expenses now, count potential profit and how much money it really costs to expand business internationally without AIESEC trainee help. We cant guarantee you that as a final outcome, but we can select for you high motivated trainee from this country who will be able to provide you necessary information and make market research to be sure about necessity and all the risks for expanding there.
  • Supply from the Network IT Marketing Brazil Poland Mexico Colombia Romania Tunisia India Canada Spain Ukraine 172 144 121 116 97 90 84 82 62 53 Tunisia India Brazil Colombia Mexico Poland Morocco Romania Canada Turkey 158 87 85 82 58 57 50 43 32 30
  • Leadership development of the trainee Intensive and challenging experience in startup environment: often decision making process and high level of responsibility Innovations, hard work and persistence would move intern out of his comfort zone which will give him very powerful inner and outer journey Trainee might see fast direct impact of his job to the company and society because of the purpose oriented business
  • Success | Experience Being an intern I’d love to go for this internship, because I understand the purpose of the company and issue which company is solving is a crucial for young parents today. I want to contribute to this start up

They are the winners of the 2nd prize at the Hungarian InnovationTechshow 2012 and were featured at Startup Sauna Fall 2012. Also 17 startups that help you stay active
  • During implementation be careful of • Have a clear value proposition about exact market segment • Don’t defocus on several industries at the same time if you don’t have enough capacity (research and approach health sector first, for example) • Try to find warm contacts in the area (approach alumni), take additional expertize (check history) • Small startups are not usually ready to invest money at the first stage of development  think how to work with this obstacle or approach investors/supporters directly
  • Do we have to change everything??  No, don’t stop raising TNs  No, you don’t have to drop your current market – product strategy  No, we don’t have to raise with only nonprofits, schools, and hospitals
  • Make specific changes to what we’re doing now Start doing new things to build a purposeful GIP program
  • How to Change What You’re Doing Now  Choose which of these market – product strategies you want to implement in Q1  In the JDs your EPs are currently doing, add activities that develop leadership  Ensure TN-takers understand and want to co-deliver leadership experiences  Embed purpose into your sales member education, your marketing, and your sales process
  • Market – Product Process 1. Research trends in business, education, government, social issues, IGOs, NGOs, etc 2. Choose relevant needs of society and the industries that address these needs 3. Interview with industry leaders and experts, use research to understand talent needs and create hypothesis of sub-product solution for the industry 4. Test sub-product solutions and choose top market – product combinations 5. Make a targeting list of companies to sell these products to 6. Align marketing an talent capacity to be able to reach these markets, sell the right product, deliver it, and showcase it
  • Will This Solve All My Problems?  Still need to train people  Still need to market, sell, and deliver well  In Colombia sales members see the impact so clearly it’s difficult to move their focus to other sub-products  In Russia the sales members were so successful they didn’t feel as much pressure to perform anymore
  • What Will Be the Impact When We Do This?  More sales intensity because members understand the why  Better leadership experiences for EPs and members as they contribute to society’s needs  More TN raises with better customers for our purpose
  • What Do We Do in Q1? Activity Choose what market segments you want to sell in based on “If you could bring 1000 EPs to your country . . .” Message purpose of GIP to LCs in all channels Add purposeful elements to JDs of current marketproduct strategy Share CoW of GIP with TN-takers and help them plan to co-deliver leadership experiences Embed purpose of GIP in all marketing, talent capacity, and showcasing for iGIP Integrate 1 new market segment from GST research Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X
