2 introduction of environmental scanning to fellows v5 w instructornotes (1)

  1. 1. Pre-Exercise: Think for a Moment <ul><li>What is your favorite food? </li></ul><ul><li>Why is this food your favorite? </li></ul><ul><li>Who else likes this food? </li></ul><ul><li>What is it about this food you like? </li></ul><ul><li>Is there another food that you sometimes want instead of this food? </li></ul>
  2. 2. Inspiration: Scanning Recognizing Your Environment to Build Products that Fit
  3. 3. It depends how you look at it <ul><li>Before going into the Promised Land, Moses sends spies to review it </li></ul><ul><li>When the 12 spies went into the Promised Land, they all saw different things </li></ul><ul><li>Although the majority of the spies saw competition, the two righteous ones saw opportunity </li></ul>Knowing how to survey the market is crucial to success
  4. 4. Visions live in the World. <ul><li>There is no such thing as a product or service without competitors. </li></ul><ul><li>Everything nowadays is competition for our most precious resource: Time. </li></ul><ul><li>Without recognizing other players in the market, one cannot learn from the market; without recognizing what value propositions work for what target market, one dooms one’s venture to repeating others’ mistakes. </li></ul>Entrepreneurs steal good ideas and avoid existing pitfalls.
