Step: Draw a table with 3 columns on a flipchart! - Label the first column „Dimension“.! - Label the second column „Assumptions“.! - Label the third column „Challenge“.! 2. Step: Define the dimensions! - Under the first column list things like pricing, costumers, products and services offered, delivery, costs, competitors, etc. #1
 Everything you consider being important in your industry.! - What are the main competitive factors in your industry?! - List all your functions: production, development, distribution, marketing and sales, etc.! Challenge 3. Step: List industry assumptions! - What are the main industry assumptions for each dimension?! - What is considered being the norm in the industry?! - What are the industryʻs restrictions, the dos and donʻts?! Industry - Does the industry have a product-centric, customer-centric, or rather competency-centric approach?! 4. Step: Challenge industry assumptions!

Examples! - Nintendo Wii! - Low cost, no service airlines! - Low cost airlines with service! - Music for free download! - Direct banking! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  5. 5. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Other industries can teach you a lot about how to reorganize your business model. ! Questions:! - Which industries could you turn to, that face similar challenges! #2
 - You might also want to look at substitute industries: what makes customers trade between your industry and another one? (see card number 16)! Look at Examples! - Think about how a logistics company could turn to a organ transport company to get inspiration on how to deliver goods completely really fast.! - McDonaldʻs brought manufacturing ideas to restaurants.! different industries! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  6. 6. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Think about your market and organize it into 3 groups of non-customers.! - 1st group: „soon-to-be“ non-customers: They minimally use the current offering, but are constantly searching for something better or different and ready to switch easily. They are closest to the existing customers.! - 2nd group: „refusing“ non-customers: They either do not use or #3
 cannot afford to use the current market offerings because they find the offerings unacceptable or beyond their means. These customers are willing to buy, but not at the current terms.! - 3rd group: „unexplored” non-customers: They are the farthest away from the existing market. Typically they are being ignored Target
 completely as potential customers by the industry, either because they have always been assumed to belong to another industry or are not being considered worth the effort.! Non- Focus on the 1st group ! - Why would they switch?! - What are they looking for?! - What are the customersʼ needs and wants?! Customers! Focus on the 2nd group! - Why are they refusing?! - How could the offer become more attractive for them?! Focus on the 3rd group! - Why are these potential customers being ignored?! - Which non-customers might have the same needs as your current ones?! - How could reach them with the existing offer?! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  7. 7. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! 1. Step: Think about potential customers that either! - would need your product, but cannot afford it, or! - whom your industry and/or company consider not being worth the effort as margins would currently be too small.! 2. Step: Ask yourself ! - What are these customersʻ needs?! #4
 - Could a simpler, less costly version of your product fulfill this need?! - What would this product and/or service look like?! - How would you have to modify the existing offer?! - How could reach them with the existing offer and still make a Target less profit?! - How would the business model have to change to still make a profit?! profitable Examples! - Grameen bank! - Rental cars for 1.- Euro! - Low cost airlines! customers! - Discount supermarkets (Lidl, Hofer,...)! - Discount mobile phone providers (Yesss, Bob,...)! - Juraxx low cost lawyers! - Disount hotels (Etape, Formula 1, Ibis,...)! - Direct banking! - Tata Motors! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  8. 8. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! 1. Step: Think about your customers! - Who is least satisfied?! - Why are they not satisfied?! - Is your offer too expensive?! - Is quality too high or too low?! - Is your product too complicated for them to use?! - Do you offer too many or too little features for them?! #5
 - Which part of your offer are they not satisfied with?! 2. Step: How would your offer have to change to attract these customers and satisfy them?! Target the least satisfied customers! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  9. 9. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Instead of focusing on the buyer of your product, who is often best known, you might want to consider looking at the chain of buyers. ! 1. Step: Write the buyer experience steps on a flipchart! - Awareness! - Evaluation! #6
 - Purchase! - Delivery! - Use! - Supplements! - Maintenance! Target the - Disposal! 2. Step: Identify the chain of buyers! - For each of these steps in the customer experience identify chain of individuals or groups of people having to deal with each of these steps separately.! - What is it that they are looking for?! - What are each member of the chainʻs needs?! buyers! Examples! - Cars! - McDonaldʻs! - McCafé! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  10. 10. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Businesses typically segment their customers along differences such as gender, age, status, class, income, etc. But what do customers, and even non-customers, have in common? ! 1. Step: List your main! - Customers! - Non-customers! #7
 (refer to card number 2 for categorizing your customers)! 2. Step: Ask the following questions! - What do your customer have in common?! Segment - Are there other segments that might have the same needs, although they donʼt appear on your radar (yet)?! - What needs do they share?! - What are they trying to get done?! according to Examples! commonalities! If you observe customers at McDonaldʼs youʼre likely to see a lot of differences (students, male and female, kids, parents, lawyers, shop floor workers,….) which essentially donʼt really matter. ! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  11. 11. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Whereas strategy #7 looks at the customers as such and usually uses criteria for which data is readily available, you can also try to describe what need the customers are trying to fulfill and why they are buying your product.! #8
 Identifying these circumstances can again help in two ways: either bring ideas for new or enhanced offerings or you can target additional customers that have the same need, but have traditionally been neglected because the industry focused on a particular type of customer.! Segment Questions:! - When is your product being bought?! - In which circumstances do people really use it?! according to - For what purpose is it used in these circumstances?! Examples! circumstance - Looking at McDonaldʼs the need might primarily be to satisfy your hunger. Another reason might be to spend time with friends, get the kids to shut up, escape from the cold, not having to cook, kill time, whatever.! s! - Think about Smartphones: people use them to kill time while sitting in restaurants, waiting in line, at airports,... This way you think about the product in a completely different way and build features for this purpose, like on the iPhone.! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  12. 12. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! It seems to me the trend has gone towards finer segmentation in recent years. Mass-customization has been the result. Think about the car industry in Europe: customers have so many choices to individually configure their car that the result is more than a million different possible configurations of a single model.! Focusing on commonalities might help to find bigger segments #9
 and simpler products and product lines as a result. Bigger segments might also be worth the effort, even if profitability is low. Instead of desegmenting using commonalities or circumstance you might find other ways to do so.! Desegment Questions:! - What do your customers have in common?! - What do your non-customers have in common? (see card number 3)! the customer based! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  13. 13. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Selling a new product or new services to core customers is one of the most commonly pursued and highest-potential growth strategies. ! The approach allows for first wins, is not too risky and will probably not upset others within your organization. And you could indeed be creative regarding the kind of products and services you offer.! #10
 Questions:! - Think about the buyer experience (see card number 18): what complementary products and services would enhance the Offer customer experience along the experience cycle?! - What products can you offer along your services?! - What services along your products?! complementary - Which complementary services would make your customersʼ life easier and the buying experience a lot more satisfying?! - Which other products do your customers typically buy along yours, but have to get somebody else?! products and Examples! services! - McCafé: coffee and cake are complimentary products to the main course.! - W Hotels teamed up with Bliss to offer spa facilities in its hotels and Bliss products to take home. ! - Fries + ketchup.! - Cars + insurance.! - Cars + financing.! - iPod + iTunes.! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  14. 14. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Does the customer merely want to own your product, or is he buying it for a purpose? What is that purpose?! Questions:! - Look at your customersʼ total buying experience (see card number 18): what it is that they are trying to accomplish and offer the according solutions.! #11
 - What solutions can you offer along the buying experience?! - How can you engage your customers in „co-creation“ experiences?! - Could the customers design the products or parts of it themselves?! Offer - Why do people buy your product? To own it, or because they want to solve a problem or satisfy a need?! - What could a total solution, making the customerʻs total experience more worthwhile, look like?! solutions and Examples! experiences! - As a Lego customer you can put together your own very special box of Lego bricks. It might also require you to shift from a functional appeal to an emotional one (see card number 13).! - The iPhone is not simply a phone, itʼs an experience.! - UPS went from shipping boxes to offering supply chain management solutions.! - Emirates offers business class passengers the service of being picked up and driven to the airport. Itʼs not only the flight that counts, but getting to the plane is part of the solution and customer experience. ! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  15. 15. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! The difference between complementary products (see card number 12) and bundles is that with bundles thereʼs no choice. You get the bundle and not the separate products.! Questions:! - Which services and/or products could you use along yours?! - Which does the customer buy anyhow?! - Which bundles would make the customerʻs life easier?! - What is the total solution that customers want?! - Can you offer additional services and/or prodcuts for different stages of the buyer cycle? (see card number 18)! #12
 Examples! - Computers + Operating System! Offer bundles! - McDonaldʻs meals! - Mobile Phone + contract! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  16. 16. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Think Apple. People donʼt buy the iPhone simply because of itʼs functions. Indeed the first version was not even state of the art! But thatʼs not what Apple was: It was much more about being cool! ! #13 Switch Questions:! - What is the appeal of your industry?! - Does it focus more on the functional aspects of the product? On customer service? Or on emotions?! - What if you switched your appeal to the opposite of the industry: your appeal: What would that mean?! functional Examples! - Apple focuses above all on the emotions! - New Windows 7 campaign! - Blackberry “Love what you do” campaign! versus emotional! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  17. 17. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Customers donʻt simply buy a product. They buy it for a purpose. They want to satisfy a need or get something done.! Questions:! - What are the customersʼ needs and wants?! - What is the job they are trying to get done?! - What is the problem they are trying to solve?! - What job can customers not get done?! #14
 Examples! - Starbucks: Itʻs not about the coffee, but the atmosphere.! Focus on the job to be done! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  18. 18. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Instead of adding new features all the time think about what elements you can eliminate, because nobody needs them anyway, which ones you can reduce below industry standards, which ones to raise and which ones to create.! #15
 Questions:! - What factors should be reduced well below the industry standard?! - What factors should be raised well beyond the industry standard?! Selectively - What factors should be created that the industry never offered?! - What factors should be eliminated that the industry has taken for granted?! - Is consumption constrained by any factors, which might be eliminate, reduced?! Examples! reduce, raise - Nintendo Wii: Compared to the Xbox or the Playstation you canʼt play DVDs or Blurays, no storage (eliminate), graphics are a lot less powerful (reduce), fun was raised and the new motion control technology was created.! and create! - Low cost airlines eliminated and reduce several parts of the offering that certain customers did not want, need or value.! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  19. 19. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! This might be a potential spot to get inspiration for additional products and services, solutions and experiences. The questions is why people might trade your products for substitutes from other industries or strategic groups. Why do you prefer the car to the train or a flight? ! Questions:! - What other products do customers buy and/or use instead of yours (when they are trying to get the same job done)?! - What other products do non-customers buy instead of yours?! #16
 - What offerings do alternative industries have?! - What offerings do other strategic groups have?! Look at Examples! - ÖBB Railjet: the Railjet First Class brings the typical Business Class experience from airlines to the train.! substitutes! - Low cost airlines compared to train, bus or car.! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
  20. 20. Value  Innova+on          Business  Model  Innova+on          Market  Innova+on   HOW! Questions:! - Which unique assets do you have and how can you use them differently?! - Which of your assets, capabilities, and core competencies are #17
 truly unique?! - Which of those are valued most by current customers?! - How could you offer your value proposition to other customers, the industry hasnʻt thought of?! - What can your assets be used for? (List everything you could do Expand the with them!)! - What do you use them for today?! - What else, even completely unrelated to your current use, could you use them for?! use of your Examples! assets and - McCafé: How could McDonaldʼs use its prime locations to attract additional business? By offering a new solution: the McCafé.! capabilities! © 2010 Marc Sniukas!!
