BOS Assignment

Reflections from last week: 

  • Edit your Radical Vision Statement based on the feedback. 
  • Write your Survival Statement to articulate the risk you identified and how you’ll mitigate it. 
  • Think of 2-3 features or opportunities – how would you place them on the Vision vs. Survival rubric? 
  • What were your key learnings from writing a vision this way and sharing priorities on the Vision vs. Survival rubric? 

Preparation for the next session (Dec 1st):

  • Start to think about your RDCL Strategy for the next session on Dec 1:
    • Real pain points: Think about the personas you’re targeting. What are their real pain points, i.e. what is the pain that makes them engage with your product?
    • Design: What’s the solution for those pain points? 
    • Capabilities: What’s the special sauce you need to deliver on the promise of the design (technology, IP, partnerships, etc).
    • Logistics: How will you deliver this solution to the customer? What’s your pricing model, sales channel, support and training plan.
