PRODUCT VALUECOMPETITIVE STRATEGIES INNOVATION AND ICT Treacy en Wiersema
COMPETITIVE STRATEGY: Brand INNOVATION AND ICT Brand in 1950 Layer of meaning Core elements dominant
Incremental innovation introduces relatively minor changes to the existing product, exploits the potential of the established design, and often reinforces the dominance of established firms. Although it draws from no dramatically new science, it often calls for considerable skill and ingenuity and, over time, has very significant economic consequences.
Modular innovation changes a core design concept without changing the product's architecture.
Architectural innovation changes a product's architecture but leaves the components, and the core design concepts that they embody, unchanged.
Radical innovation, in contrast, is based on a different set of engineering and scientific principles and often opens up whole new markets and potential applications.

Solution Development ProcessPhase 0 - Discovery INNOVATION AND ICT Short description and a quick check of idea against predefined criteria. Concept Definition – captures: - Short description of the idea or concept, what it is and how it works - Target market - Key value proposition - Window of opportunity - Benefits to target market, customers and Getronics - The business opportunity from technical, operational, partnering perspective - Identification of any show stoppers Idea evaluation – Validation of idea against Idea History log and ranked against criteria: - Strategic fit - Market attractiveness and size - Complexity of technical feasibility - Complexity of organisation feasibility - Competitive advantage Plan activities next stage – Project plan for the next stage and required resources. Gate 1 – Go/No Go to go to the next stage based on the outcome of the idea evaluation and approval of the Next stage plan and requested resources. Record Idea – Record denied idea information in the Idea History Log document for future reference. Next phase
Solution Development ProcessPhase 1 - Scoping INNOVATION AND ICT A quick investigation on market potential of idea and sculpting of the project. Market Assessment – addressing: - Addressable market, size and segmentation - Solution description and portfolio fit - Customer needs versus value proposition Technical Assessment – addressing: - Likelihood of technical feasibility - Architecture design, construction and development - Possible partners and products - Compliance to FRW and security standards Operational Assessment – addressing: - Operational tasks - Inventory of organisation - Regulatory and legal governance - Compliance to standard tooling Preliminary Financial Assessment – addressing: - financial elements - rough financial projection Impact Analyses – addressing: - Fit to Portfolio Strategy, Road Map and Business Plan - Likelihood of positive return and business risks - Likelihood of technical feasibility - Fits regulatory landscape and/or legal policies - Impact on organisation and resourcing Plan activities next stage – Project plan for the next stage and required resources. Gate 2 – Go/No Go decision based on the outcome of Impact Analyses (Score card), approval of the Next stage Project plan and requested resources. Previous phase Next phase
The detailed homework and upfront investigation work on business viability of the idea and scoping of the project. Market Analyses & decisions – addressing: - Market entry strategy decisions on marcomms - Product positioning, win statement and pricing policy - Channel strategy and cost of sales Interviews & Trial Customer Selection – addressing: - Conducting customer interviews - Concept testing with customers - Selection of Trial Customer(s) Technical Analyses & decisions – addressing: - choice of Partner and Product - Costing of components - Final Architectural design and evolution Operational Analyses & decisions – addressing: - Decision on Delivery department - Resource forecast and costing Detailed Financial Analyses – addressing: - Financial projections - Risks and sensitivity analyses - worst case, best case, most likely senario - Project prioritisation Gate 3 – Go/No Go decision based on: - Quality check on the deliverables - Outcome of the Business Case - Evaluation and approval of the Next stage Project plan. If a Go an approval is given to form a project team to complete the next stage. Solution Development ProcessPhase 2 – Build Business Case INNOVATION AND ICT Previous phase Next phase
Solution Development ProcessPhase 3 – Build & deploY INNOVATION AND ICT Previous phase The actual design and development of the new Solution. Technical Dev. & Imp. – All activities that are required to design, build and test the new product/service according to specification incl. Operational Support Systems (OSS) and training personnel if required. Process Dev. & Imp. & Tr. – Development and implementation of all processes required to sell, build, deploy manage and support the new solution during its life cycle. Configuration of Business Support Systems (BSS), Operational Support Systems (OSS) and development of business reports. Training of process, process interlocks and tools. Marketing Dev. - The development of Sales guide, Sales & Support training program, Customer presentation, Pricing model, Order form, Contract (GTC, description, SLA), Proposal text, Folder/Leaflet/Factsheet, Advertising text/picture/photo/video, Marcoms and Sales Channel Strategy. Operational Readiness Test (ORT) – Internal operational walk through of the process from sale-order-delivery-invoice-maintenance & support. Improvement Process – Fix problems which occurred during the ORT within mandate of the project and update documentation. Gate 4 Request to go to next stage – In this process the Council validates the project deliverables (quality), outcome of the ORT, Updated Business Case (Financial) and next stage plan (resources and timelines). Project Stopped – extreme situation, problems could not be solved and keep the business case positive. Next phase
Solution Development ProcessPhase 4 – Testing & ValidatioN INNOVATION AND ICT The verification and validation of the delivery of the new Solution to a customer. Execution Customer Trial – First sale which follows the complete process from contract-delivery-billing-support-collections.. Customer & Internal Evaluation – capturing: -What went well and what went wrong - Recommendations - Additional functionality - Must have fixes and nice to haves - Validation of value proposition Trial Results Analysis – Customer evaluation results and are analysed and impact classified Improvement Process – Fix problems which occurred during the Customer Trail within mandate of the project. Gate 5 Request to go to next stage – In this process the Council validates the project deliverables (quality), outcome of the Customer Trail and next stage plan for the commercial launch of the new Solution. Project on hold – extreme situation, major show stopper(s) occured during the customer trial. Previous phase Next phase
Solution Development ProcessPhase 5 - Launch INNOVATION AND ICT Full commercial launch of the new Solution. Sales Training – Training of the sales, sales support, bid management and delivery organisation(s) addressing ins and out of the new solution, target market, positioning, competition, pricing and procedures.
