Traditional Value Chain vs. Modern Value Chain
ARE YOUSOLVING THE RIGHTPROBLEM?Most firms are not and that underminestheir innovation efforts…Indeed, when developing new products, processes, or evenbusinesses, most companies aren’t sufficiently rigorous in defining theproblems they’re attempting to solve and articulating why those issues areimportant. Without that rigor, organizations miss opportunities, wasteresources, and end up pursuing innovation initiatives that aren’t alignedwith their strategies.“If I were given one hour to save the planet, I would spend 59minutes defining the problem and one minute resolving it,”Albert Einstein said.
Customer Discovery:"Get Out of the Building" to Test theProblem: "Do Customers Care?"Get your team "out of the building" to test theproblem and to answer three key questions:• Do we really understand the customers problem?• Do enough people really care enough about the problem for this to become a huge business?• And will they care enough to tell their friends?
