Experimental Approach to Venturepreneurial Strategy

 

You cannot realistically tell in advance what will work as expected, what will work unexpectedly well, what will not work, or how the future will unfold.

Therefore intertwine formulations and implementation, continually adjusting your strategy as you gain new insights through an experimental process of learning and discovering by doing.

Focus on opportunity, not financial returns

 

 

 

Virtuous Spiral of Strategic Experimentation  

Don’t measure return, risk, and investment solely in terms of money. Capabilities grow through use, and how fast they grow is critical to your success. Jump into the market before the financial returns meet your requirements and grow as you go.

 

 

   

Head of Growth

When you create something radically new ( → example) or pursue an unclear entrepreneurial opportunity, you have to deal with the fuzzy front end of a journey into the unknown.
