Create your own prototype

In order for companies to remain competitive, they have to create innovative products, processes or services to satisfy new or existing customers. Prototypes allow you to test your ideas early on to get invaluable feedback informing you about what the customers really want.

On this course you will learn about different types of prototype you can use to demonstrate a new product, process or service and you will get the opportunity to create your own. You will use the feedback you receive to refine your idea, explore what makes a good pitch and then have a go at pitching your idea.
