The project aim is to deliver information to business coaches and business developers to enable them to assist entrepreneurs in an original way. They will be taught how to offer a more personalised assistance, focussed on the specific needs of each entrepreneur, and how to help them to ‘automate’ the generation of ideas according to the growth-hacking strategy.
Identifying the emergence of a 'hard' and 'soft' skill set, related to the new challenges addressing the entrepreneurial coaching sector.
Validate a cross-country and cross-sectoral methodology for a participatory needs analysis in order to better cope with the learning outcomes and teaching methods used for dynamic re/up-skilling requirements.
Integrate MOOC solutions involving both gamification experts and entrepreneurial coaches in order to generate a permanent open repository for innovative self-training and self-assessment.
Test peer-to-peer training and skills evaluation, by generating a software-based tool.
Consolidate a common understanding on how to mix growth-hacking strategies and gamification principles in order to upgrade the competencies of business coaching professionals (game hackers).
Create a unique, shared competence profile for game hackers.
Create a Virtual Learning Hub (the GAG Lab) in order to establish a network of European qualified game hackers.
