DESCRIPTION

This unit is focused upon developing each student's understanding of the process of bringing a new idea to market and the distinct steps or stage gates used to determine which ideas make it to market and which don't. The learning activities used throughout the unit provide each student with an opportunity to reflect upon the commercialisation process, with a particular focus on lean or guerrilla online start-up as a common contemporary commercialisation strategy. This gives students an opportunity for participation in a 'real world' potential business and reflection on their experience of gaining knowledge. The workshops provide an experience in how to add value and work in the context of a commercialisation team; student-directed learning gives students opportunities to make a deeper self-directed analysis of the work and activities as reflected in the commercialisation process using materials and social media that is valuable to their future work practice and personal brands.
