Welcome! This page will help you learn more about New Product Blueprinting, with resources not found on our public pages. That’s because we’ve created many advanced Blueprinting practices we like to keep just between ourselves and our clients. Please share this page—which is blocked to search engines—only with trusted colleagues.
The following 34 minute module provides excerpts on Discovery interviews. Of course, this is only a small portion of our training on New Product Blueprinting. But it shows how B2B suppliers can use highly-respectful peer-to-peer interviews to “go deeper” than with traditional VOC. We don’t believe new clients should have to “guess” at the rest of our training… so feel free to request access to the 15-30 minute online modules* that all learners receive.
Most companies start training their employees using the “Team” plan training program: See matrix at the bottom of www.blueprintingtraining.com. This provides the following:
Depending on the number of people trained, most clients invest $2500-3000 per person. This includes all the materials and dedicated AIM coaching described above… essentially everything to move your teams to a whole new skill level over one year. If you would like to develop internal Blue Belt certification… and from there move on to become AIM-Certified Coaches, your per-person cost can be less.
For more details, see the matrix at the bottom of www.blueprintingtraining.com. The two most popular options are the “Team” plan and the “Business” plan. The former works well if you just want to train one-to-three new project teams, and the latter for more. You’ll see a “Calculate Cost” button for each that lets you download a Statement of Work, customized for your desired number of learners and coached teams.

AIM is in the business of helping large B2B suppliers dramatically change their front-end of innovation, to drive profitable, sustainable organic growth. This usually involves a major cultural shift… and nowhere is this more difficult than at the “starting line.” Here are some resources to help you gain the support of colleagues.
