In Business Innovation students learn about the successful management of business and enterprise in personal, business, and social contexts, on a local, national, and global scale.
Students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and understandings to engage in designing, sustaining, and transforming business in the modern world. Business Innovation is about design thinking. Students ‘learn through doing’ in Business Innovation, using design thinking and assumption-based planning processes to anticipate, find, and solve problems.
In Business Innovation students engage with complex, dynamic, real-world problems, to identify and design, test, and communicate viable business solutions.

Information on the External Assessment – Business Plan and Pitch
A business plan builds on the information contained in a business model. It is a document that describes the goals and objectives of a business and the strategies it will use to achieve these. It is a road map to provide direction and a reflective tool to measure progress.
Using the executive summary of their business plan, students create and present a pitch to support and promote their business plan to an audience of potential stakeholders, such as customers, investors, and/or board members. The audience may comprise students, teachers, members of the school and/or local community, a social media network, and business and industry representatives.
This Assessment is graded by the SACE Board.
