How to Frame a Business Challenge for Corporate Startup Teams

Corporate startup team get lost off-topic or get stuck on irrelevant problems because they are working a business challenge that is loosely defined. As a result, the team loses precious weeks, motivation and focus. Is the business challenge too broad, too narrow, too solution focused or too intangible? Have your teams too many goals, and too many or too little constraints?

Olivier and Franck will explore what makes a good starting point for those teams and how to get there, illustrated with real cases from Butagaz.
