Core Business Issues & Scorecard
#1 – maintain cash flow to finance ongoing operations
Business Horizon: close sales within 1 year or less
Current Grade: ~ B
#2 – growth, diversification & flexibility
Business Horizon: close sales within 2-3 years
Current Grade: ~ C or D
Why?
Lack of co-ordination across departments limits information flow & adaptability
May have people with poor internal selling & communication skills trying to
execute business development process, etc.
Results: information & decision making “firewalls” are created within the
company limiting their ability to penetrate new markets…

13
How to break into new markets
Create a business development group…
14
Business Development Group
A guiding mantra:
Key Lever: Virtual Teaming
“Everyone works in Business Development”
Focus: Opportunities with 2-3 year horizon
15
Business Development Group
Definition:
• Purpose - to develop and align growth strategies
• Focus – turn long term horizon (2-3 years) into real sales
• Structure - composed of real & virtual HR assets
• Range - global network of subsidiaries, alliance partners, etc
• Goals - drive communication, knowledge & sales
• Benefits - to enhance value & profits and enter new markets
Structure:
• Director - Broad powers to set vision & goals for BDG
• Exec VP – executive decision making rights over Dept VP’s
• BDM’s – business development management responsibilities
16
• Adds focus to activities:
- Separates short term cash flow creation (sales) from long term
strategic opportunity engagement (business devel)
- Clarify “beneficial” (profitable) opportunities
• Leverages cross functional teams:
- improves networking within & without the organization
- assists information flow up & down org hierarchy
Puts market opportunities in the hands of experienced decision
makers (BDM’s) which reduces overall risk
BDG – Features & Benefits
Net Result: better morale, improved decision making,
increased competitive advantage and higher profits…
17
Creating Value in New Markets

competencies and beneficial outcomes…

Some Basics of Good Strategy…
Take Away:
these are all important elements of strategy
but requires good co-ordination…
18
19
To Develop a Winning Strategy
Apply Porter’s Five Force Analysis
(Example for POF use in fiber telcom market)
•Small number of suppliers
(POF, connecters, etc.)
•Low product differentiation
•Inevitable components
(LEDs, connecters, etc)
•Few competitors
•Low brand equity
•Low exit barrier
•Low product differentiation
•Small number of buyers now
•Low competition among buyers
•Low purchased item differentiation
•Low brand equity
•Low economies of scale
•Low capital requirement
•No patent
•Low product differentiation
(3 standard)
•Know-how
•Many substitutes available
(e.g. copper, coax, wireless, etc)
•However high switching costs
(POF is cheaper than others)
•POF has strong product differentiation:
- good for short distances
-light weight (good for aircraft use)
- high reliability/long service life
- high popularity/readily available
