  • A classic example of a well-executed defensive block using Competitive Intelligence was that of Johnson &amp; Johnson when Bristol-Meyers decided to launch Datril to compete directly with Johnson &amp; Johnson&amp;apos;s successful Tylenol brand. Datril was to be priced 35% lower than Tylenol.Johnson &amp; Johnson learned of Datril before its launch, and informed Bristol-Meyers that it was cutting the price of Tylenol to match that of Datril. Johnson &amp; Johnson even extended credits to its distribution channels to make the price cut effective immediately. This move was intended to prevent Bristol-Meyers from advertising Datril as a lower-priced alternative to Tylenol. However, Bristol-Meyers responded by accelerating the launch of the television advertising campaign. Finally, Johnson &amp; Johnson countered by convincing the television networks not to run the Datril ads since they no longer could truthfully claim that Datril was priced lower than Tylenol. Johnson &amp; Johnson&amp;apos;s efforts were successful and Datril achieved less than a 1% market share. Tylenol sales soared on the publicity and lower prices.

    2. 2. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Defining Objectives for Today 1. Rewind 25 Years to See Where Competitive Intelligence Has Come From 2. Understand the New Techniques that can be Used to Understand & Produce High-Impact Analysis Based on the Core Theories of Innovation 3. Practice Applying those Techniques in Real-Life “Vignettes” using the Core Theories of Innovation as the Analytical Framework
    3. 3. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Three Intelligence Trends • Organizational Acculturation – Everyone in the Firm is a Virtual Member of the CI Team • Corporate Governance – Board-level Priority for Ensuring Reliability of the Earnings Forecast (Vioxx/Celebrex Impact, SarbOx 402, etc.) • Disruptive Innovation – Predicting Outcome of Competitive Battles based on Product Strategy & Predictable Dynamics
    4. 4. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC CI is About Better Decision-Making • Strategic Decisions – What Business are We in and Where are New Opportunities for Growth? • Operational Decisions – How do we structure those business units to most effectively compete for and win Market Share? • Tactical Decisions – Which customers are available to us and how can we convince them to select us over any and all functional equivalents?
    5. 5. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Research Collection Sources Where does the information come from? 1. Primary Research We may share customers, prospects and suppliers who can be interviewed. Every company has knowledgeable employees with loose lips. 1. Secondary Research Companies release information for promotional, image and regulatory purposes. No Company Operates in Isolation Information is exchanged everywhere money is exchanged.
    6. 6. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Analysis is Key “The competitor would make a good acquisition candidate. Its lean & mean structure would fit well with our current operations.” Intelligence: The insight that will allow you to make an informed decision “After gathering more operational information and running a side-by- side profit & loss analysis, it appears the competitor has become highly efficient. It exceeds industry standards and has become a best- in-class facility.” Analysis: Distilled information “Based on the D&B and the salesperson’s report, it appears the competitor has lost business.” Information: A pooling of these bits of facts, observations and rumors 2001: “The D&B report told us that the competitors plant had 100 employees.” 2004: “One of our salespeople just passed by the competitor’s plant and spotted only 30 cars in the lot.” Data: Scattered bits and pieces of facts, observations and rumors The Difference Between Data and Intelligence

    9. 9. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Strategic Intelligence • Principles of Defensive Warfare – Only the market leader should consider playing defense. – The best defensive strategy is the courage to attack yourself. – Strong competitive moves should always be blocked. • Principles of Offensive Warfare – The main consideration is the strength of the leader's position. – Find a weakness in the leader's strength and attack at that point. – Launch the attack on as narrow a front as possible. • Principles of Flanking Warfare – A good flanking move must be made into an uncontested area. – Tactical surprise ought to be an important element of the plan. – The pursuit is just as critical as the attack itself. • Principles of Guerilla Warfare – Find a segment of the market small enough to defend. – No matter how successful you become, never act like the leader. – Be prepared to bug out at a moment's notice. -- Jack Trout Guerilla Small Players • Finding market small enough to defend • Prepared to bug out at moment’s notice Flanking New Players • Moving into uncontested area • Element of surprise Offensive No 2 or No 3 • Avoiding leader’s strengths • Attacking leader’s weaknesses Defensive Market Leaders • Attacking themselves with new ideas • Blocking competitive moves The Strategy SquareThe Strategy Square
    10. 10. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Growth Vector Analysis • Growth Vector Analysis (GVA) reviews the different product alternatives available to the firm in relation to its market options, not already being pursued by competitors. Four complimentary characteristics are used for defining common threads of strategy: – Product-Market Scope specifies particular industries to which a firm confines its position. – Growth Vector indicates the direction a firm is moving relative to current product-market posture (market penetration, market development, product development and diversification). – Competitive Advantage defined as particular properties of individual product markets conveying a strong market position. – Synergy is the combined effect on the firm’s resources that is greater than the sum of its parts.

    15. 15. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC Seven Steps to Effective Competitive Benchmarking • Determine functional areas within your operation to be benchmarked. This is likely to be those areas that will benefit most from the benchmarking process, based upon the cost, importance and potential of changes following the study. • Identify the key factors and variables with which to measure those functions. Two general forms – wherewithal/resources and goals/strategy. • Select the best-in-class companies for each area to be benchmarked -- those companies that perform each function at the lowest cost, with the highest degree of customer satisfaction, etc. The companies you select will be those that do whatever you’re measuring better than you do and/or are ones you wish to emulate or copy. • Measure performance of the comparison companies for each benchmark being considered. • Measure your own performance for each variable and begin comparing the results in an "apples-to-apples" format to determine the gap between your firm and the best-in-class examples. • Specify programs and actions to meet and surpass the competition based on a plan developed to enhance those areas that show potential for compliment. • Implement your improvement program by setting specific improvement targets and deadlines, and by developing a monitoring process to review and update the analysis over time. This will also form the basis for ongoing monitoring, revision and recalibration of measurements in future benchmarking studies.

    19. 19. www.ReconG2.comReconG2Competitive Intelligence for the Need to Know Enterprisewww.AuroraWDC.comAurora WDC The Insight Method • Take Nothing at Face Value • Get to the Facts at the Heart of an Issue • Explain Difficult Concepts, Don’t Write Around It • Speak to As Many Relevant People as Possible • Use Simple, Obvious Questions to Open Subjects • Don’t Echo Main Source, Find Other Views • Every Company, Person & Issue Has a History that Drives Behavior Today • Sunday Times

Overshot Consumers: Opportunities for Low-End Disruption, Shifting Profits by Specialist Displacements (Modularity) and the Emergence of Rules 2.
