I'm currently working on getting a videoseminar together on the topic of Innovation Processes. The target audience is small to medium businessowners who feel the need to bring innovation in their company, but don't know where to start.
I'm looking for a VA who can help me to do research and draft contents for this seminar.The skills I'm looking for in a VA are: good analytical reading, good (english) instructional writing skills.
If you would accept the assignment, i would like you to:
*** DRAFT AN OUTLINE FOR THE CHAPTER 'WHAT IS INNOVATION'
I will turn this outline into a video chapter, which should have a length of 10 to 20 minutes.
Topics I want adressed in this outline:
- What is innovation?
- Why should it matter to small and medium businesses?
- Explanation of the three types of innovation:
- Process innovation (operational processes, customer experience etc.)
- Product and service innovation
- Business model innovation
I do not need you to focus on writing a flowing text, as I will be paraphrasing anyway to put it in my words. Focus on content and insights. You can use keywords and quotes, and if it helps use diagrams, pictures, tables, etc. Please keep the target audience in mind.
In order to write this outline, I need you to
*** DO (WEB) RESEARCH
Search for interesting articles, papers, websites, video's etc. that allow you to come up with instructive content with respect to the given topics.
Please keep track of all the sources you used for the outline. Please compile a list of these sources and deliver this together with the texts, and highlight the sources you found particularly interesting, instructive and/or useful for the texts.
please deliver the outline in a plaintext or Microsoft Word file.
please put the list of sources in a separate plaintext, MS Word or MS Excel file.
As it is my first time working with a VA, this assignment is a test to see whether this helps me in my process, and to see what kind of results I can expect when asking for original content. If I'm happy with the results I will have a couple of follow-up assignments.
If you have any comments, feedback, questions or remarks on the assignment and how I have communicated it, please let me know. That will help me to write more clear assignments, and to get more results out of next assignments.
