HOW WE DO IT
Onramp Mentorship & Training – Hands-on practice and discussion about real world work issues are covered in-depth to prepare students for success in work environments and relationships — topics range from areas such as professional email practices to compensation structures and hiring negotiation. These skills are developed in ways that are equally applicable to both for profit and non-profit organizations. These skills are equally relevant and essential to those seeking to work independently or inside organizations.
Learning Effectuation – Effectuation is the cornerstone of our work at Onramp. Effectuation (www.effectuation.org) is a set of principles practiced by expert innovators that enable them to solve problems and create new value — wherever they work whatever their role. At Onramp you will discover the big benefits an entrepreneurial mindset offers without needing to become an entrepreneur.
“Never hope more than you work” – Rita Mae Brown
Onramp Consulting Team – The Onramp cohort works together as an effectuation consulting team on assignment to an area business and provides strategic, effectuation recommendations, and implementation support. These projects are not simulations and are ‘live’ issues.
Onramp Teamwork & Road Trips – Onramp emphasizes building skills for both collaborative and hierarchical environments. As part of Onramp training, we make onsite visits at exemplar innovation organizations to see how successful teams work (possible visits are to groups such as Amazon.com, The Knight Cancer Institute, Galois, Nike and others).
