Discovery Driven Growth
Strategic ventures are inherently RISKY.
Learn how to spend a little & learn a lot.
What Is It?
Discovery-driven planning is a powerful tool for any significant strategic undertaking that is fraught with uncertainty: new product or market ventures, technology development, joint ventures, strategic alliances, even major systems redevelopment. Unlike platform-based planning, in which much is known, discovery-driven planning forces managers to articulate what they don’t know, and it forces a discipline for learning. As a planning tool, it thus raises the visibility of the make-or-break uncertainties common to new ventures and helps managers address them at the lowest possible cost.
