Ecosystem Mapping & Network Analysis
For a business case with impact
Why this course?
An ecosystem is a network of interconnected organizations working on one topic. How they relate to one another impacts the success rate of a business case, whether that is a product or service, an expansion into unknown markets, or the completion of a project. The role of the private sector and its relations with the ecosystem and partnerships with civil society is crucial to develop a viable business case and maximize impact. This course looks differently at market analysis by starting with analysing gaps in the market and mapping the ecosystem and network opportunities, before looking at the role organisations can play to pursue or support a business case with social impact.
By the end of this course, you will:
