  2. 2. Business Idea vs Business Concept
  3. 3. Learning Objective: We will learn how to present our business idea clearly. We will learn how to tell a story that will describe our business concept.
  4. 4. Side Bar: Strategic Stories: How 3M is Rewriting Business Planning* Example: We will:  Increase market share (SOM) by 25%  Increase profits by 30%  Increase product intros to 10 a year. Q: What is causing what here? Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 4 •HBR, May-June 1998
  5. 5. Example: What is implied by the bullets, in the previous slide? Is the cause-and-effect chain: A. SOM  Profits  Product Development or, B. Product Development  SOM Profits Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 5
  6. 6. Side Bar: Bullets don’t work well…  Bullet lists are too generic  Bullets leave critical relationships unspecified  Bullets leave critical assumptions about how the business works unspecified Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 6
  7. 7. Tell a Story… Narrative stories overcome these issues: 1. Set the stage (who are the actors / situation) 2. Define dramatic conflict (difficulties / “pain”) 3. Resolution (how you win / eliminate pain) Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 7
  8. 8. Benefits of Story Telling:  People remember stories much better,  People will understand the situation, problem, and your proposed solution clearly,  Cause-and-Effect relationships are clear in a story.  Business Plans should be communicated just like a story, so they are clearly received by the listeners. Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 8
  9. 9. Business Idea vs. Business Concept Business Idea: “I want to get into Internet security…” Q: Is this a good business? Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 9
  10. 10. Business Idea vs. Business Concept Business Idea: “Get into Internet security…” Business Concept: 1. Who is your customer? 2. What value will you offer them? 3. How will you deliver the value to them? 4. How will you reach these customers? Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 10
  11. 11. Business Concept Statement 1. Customer: SMBs (KOBI) that make use of Internet to run their businesses, which are currently being ignored by the larger IT companies. Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 11
  12. 12. Business Concept Statement 2. Value Proposal: Security system that is updated and maintained over the Internet, so SMBs would not need to spend time and money to do this themselves or by using outside contract labor. Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 12
  13. 13. Business Concept Statement 3. Delivering Value: All services would be installed via a “hardware box” that connects in between the Internet connection and the intercompany network. Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 13
  14. 14. Business Concept Statement 4. Reaching Customers: Get contact information from the Chamber of Commerce, and use direct sales personnel. Ziya G. Boyacigiller (c) 2005 EMBA 14
