Published on

This Go-To-Market Strategic framework was developed as a result of a major consulting assignment. Three expert process design consultants were locked in a room for 2 weeks to develop what has become the world's leading methodology for developing a go to market strategy.

The client for this project was a $2m PA Innovation Program. In order to see results from the innovation program they engaged us to develop a structured methodology for determining the best path to market for any new innovation. Watch the presentation to the end as there is now an embedded video overview of the methodology.

  19. 19. Why does a Go-To-Market Strategy Matter? 19
  20. 20. The future of your organisation depends on it • Reduce time to market • Reduce cost associated with failed go-to- market attempts • Reduce reputation risk • Reduce risk of product success • Increase ability to adapt quickly • Ensure regulatory compliance • Enhance customer experience • Manage innovation adoption issues 20
  21. 21. But why today more than ever? • Channels to market more complex than ever • Access to channels more competitive than ever • Path to market is now not always clear • Business demand for quick results means choosing the wrong path to market can mean premature death of a great product or service • More regulation and compliance • Many channels to market for innovative products have the potential to cause channel conflict with existing products. 21
