PricewaterhouseCoopers New Business Accelerator
In new business development, time is as valuable as it is scarce. We believe that as long as your company perceives time as an enemy, time will work against you. In the New Business Accelerator approach, time is your company’s new ally. The New Business Accelerator has a structure of five day sets to keep up the pressure.
Business developers are always looking for new drivers of future growth. Design, technology and business modelling are today’s most promising development tools. By using them together, companies go beyond the boundaries of their current business knowledge and find new ways to create value. This is the key to any acceleration.
In new business exploration, preparation is as essential as exploration. Participants in a New Business Accelerator project need space to learn from each other, to agree on current realities and to open to new visions. We create a fast, supportive and functional space for new business: a New Business Accelerator lab.
Facilitation is the art of leading people through processes toward agreed-upon objectives. At it’s very best, it is done in a manner that encourages participation, owner-ship and creativity. In the New Business Accelerator approach, the skills, principles and practices of facilitation are applied in your company’s benefit.
Visual thinking essentially is about constructing meaning. With visual techniques like drawing, sketching and modelling, your company will be able to capture the big picture of any new business proposition. Visiualisation enables your company to formulate, explore and define new business opportunities.
We believe that for new businesses to be successful - whether your company defines success in monetary terms or not - they will have to be invented by you. It’s about your dialogue and ideas. Do-it-yourself and then it will be your company that discovers the value, triggers the ideas and sells the proposition.
Business model innovation can come from anywhere. Just forget about the past and don’t consider using benchmarking. The New Business Accelerator focuses on more effective types of business model innovation. Your new business will be driven by your resources, your offer and your customers.
The New Business Accelerator is as much about generating new ideas as it is about realizing new business strategies. We develop scenarios to identify cost and revenue impact, customer impact and multiple value propositions. In taking the step from strategy to execution, we deliver your value.
