The Level 4 Intrapreneurship Skills Bootcamp is designed to create an environment where engineers can apply intrapreneurial techniques and develop transferable skills. Delivered via a live industry project-based model, this course provides a unique opportunity for participants to apply new product development principles, articulate a route to market, and develop commercial acumen. Working in teams, the participants will ideate solutions, develop a basic proof of concept, and design the business model to bring the new product or service to market, internally or externally as required.

They will consider the broader environmental, ethical and product lifecycle implications of their solution. They will also review the wider processes involved in the activity, such as marketing, human capital management, finance, leadership and management, and intellectual property.

In doing so participants will develop key transferable skills including creative problem solving, teamwork, resilience, ethical leadership, and strategic thinking.

  • 1. Ideation, design and creativity
  • 2. Agile and iterative development
  • 3. Customer value proposition
  • 4. Developing a proof of concept

  • 7. Managing and leading people
  • 8. Employee relations
  • 9. Ethics, sustainability and environment
  • 10. Finance and accounting
  • 11. Intellectual property

Assessment is based around the contributions of each participant and the quality and commercial viability of the proof of concept developed.
