I'm back (more on this next post) and it's back!
Starting September 28, 2011 I'll once again be teaching a six week evening course called "Monetizing Business Models" (Course Code: BUS213) as part of Stanford University's Continuing Studies program. An improved version of the course taught earlier this winter, BUS213 will cover strategic marketing concepts and frameworks that can be used to evaluate the money making potential of a new business idea, whether as a startup, a new venture inside a corporation, or as an investment. And per student request, we'll be going into more depth with respect to price setting strategies and tactics.
We'll be covering product/market fit and exploring different ways to analyze business models. The course assumes no previous experience in marketing. We'll be using Customer Development as the backbone methodology, focusing primarily on the Customer Discovery phase. Our course text is a great little book called The Entrepreneur's Guide to Customer Development, by Brant Cooper and Patrick Vlaskovits.

Hope to see you there!
