Identifying and pursuing new markets requires you to explore and play outside your traditional business boundaries. It calls for learning and decision-making about how to address new competitors, consumers, customers, partners, suppliers and other market dynamics – at high speed, and in unfamiliar territory.
Entering a new market with an existing product or service is hard enough – but introducing a new innovation into a new market is an even greater strategic challenge. Whatever the “white space”, success depends on understanding the specific opportunities that lie at the intersection of consumer/customer needs, industry trends, and your ability to deliver.
Questions that keep you awake at night:
- Where are the most exciting areas for growth, and how should we participate?
- How can we create new rules and change the basis of competition?
- What are the requirements to play in the new market and what strategies will help us create strategic differentiation and competitive advantage?
- What kind of technological innovations will open up new markets to drive growth?
