ENTR215 - Innovation Design and Prototyping

Course Details

Course Code: ENTR215 Course ID: 4566 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate

This course goes through the different stages of product development. When developing a product, it’s important to be specific about a product’s attributes and that the entrepreneur differentiates it from others. Different approaches exist, such as revolutionary and evolutionary, for product development. An entrepreneur may even start with one approach and then change to a different approach as the venture moves forward. To aid the student, perceptual mapping is used, which helps to define a market, the benefits, price, and position. (Prerequisite: ENTR150)
