Entrepreneurial Mindset: Opportunity Recognition and the Value Proposition
The ability to recognize an opportunity is a key ingredient in developing an entrepreneurial mindset. Engaging the customer is a significant component of this process. An exploratory seminar and discussion will be held on this subject at the Orlando IEOM Conference on Friday, September 11. You are invite to attend and participate in “painstorming” exercises that will focus on fostering opportunity recognition and engaging the customer. This dynamic process will lead to developing and delivering meaningful “value proposition” for the customer.
