When I launched Value Chain Generation in 2011, the idea was to support a movement for much needed business transformation in food and agriculture. Through the blog, I started sharing insights from my work as a researcher on entrepreneurship and innovation in the sector.
One of the key learnings that this exploration has brought me, is that business networks, and collaboration are key enablers for transformation. Yet processes by which to shape them are very poorly documented, and supported by business thinkers.
This has resulted in the creation of the Partnership Design framework for partnership-driven innovation, which builds on powerful innovation and entrepreneurship languages like customer development, user-centered design, business model generation, and lean startup.
