About the Book :

Will It Fly? How to Know if Your New Business Idea Has Wings … Before You Take the Leap By Thomas K. McKnight introduces the Innovator’s Scorecard. It is a highly intuitive tool that allows a quick, snapshot evaluation of a business idea. It is calculated to measure the worthiness of an idea before critical resources are tapped or engaged. By scoring your idea with this index, you will identify its strengths and weaknesses. You will know whether your business will fly, how to make it fly higher, and how to add the weight necessary to drive it successfully into the market so you win your share of the gold.

Will It Fly? How to Know if Your New Business Idea Has Wings … Before You Take the Leap eBook describes the distilled synthesis of a key element of those courses: a comprehensive, common-sense tool that can quickly assess the viability and feasibility of an idea at the very earliest moments of each course. In each course, the students tried to launch their ideas into real live companies. That tool, which became known first as the “Launch Aperture” and later as the “Innovator’s Scorecard,” is the basis of Will it Fly?. We needed an up-front device that would instantly align and screen the ideas for the students to manipulate during the course. Did it work? Absolutely. Students were bringing in checks for tens of thousands of dollars from customers long before the business plans were written. In one case, the students closed on $456 million for the support of their classroom project.

Will it Fly? is likely to be the best investment any entrepreneur ever made.
