The Noble Ark Ventures Curriculum Series was developed to provide organizations with an interactive framework for defining their organizational infrastructure, offerings, marketing and sales plan. Each component includes both an audio recording and workbook which can be completed by individuals, or teams, seeking additional insight and a structural development framework. Organizations are encouraged to complete each unit in the series in the order provided below, and to allot the necessary time and resources to full organizational review, integration and commitment. As there are 12 units in the series, firms are encouraged to consider implementing one unit per month, however expedited completion and the incorporation of a facilitator are possible to enhance the timeline.
