Featured Blog: The Truth is Out There – the Competitive Intelligence Mantra
Author: Mike Ratcliffe & Christian Schena
Businesses that participate in competitive intelligence (CI) are truth-seekers, and the truth occasionally differs from what they believe to be true. While developing action plans to solve them, they seek to identify issues with real impacts, however, they continue to discover facts as they proceed. Depending on who you ask, elusive facts and potential threats from competitive firms may be close or remote, therefore, it pays to be flexible in your approach and understand that reality is often more complex than it first appears to be. Remember, the truth is out there.
Featured Case Study: Market Expansion Study to understand Consumer responses in 5 Markets
A prominent manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of well-known consumer and commercial brands across a wide range of products recently teamed up with us. The client wanted to conduct a detailed market growth study based on their own line of products aimed at Gen Z and Millennials. In addition, they wanted to optimize their product line in order to expand into each market. In this case study, we explain how our experts assisted the customer with significant research that included a MaxDiff experiment based on characteristics such as demographics and market response. This helped them prioritize their products to introduce them into specific markets while analyzing positive and negative consumer responses for the future.
