Subscribe to CUSTOMER ACCELERATOR: http://www.smallbusinesselite.co.uk/customer-accelerator/ Video transcript: Have you ever watched Dragons Den on the television? Now what you have to remember is that the people who are on the panel are successful business owners and entrepreneurs in their own right so have seen it, done it, and have a good idea what makes a good product or service. That is why they are often amazed by some of the people who pitch on the show. How often do we see a pitch about a product or service for which there will never be a demand! And sadly, more often than not, these same people have invested everything they own to 'create' this product that will never find a buyer. It's as simple as this ... if you want to make money to have to sell your goods or services to other people, your target audience. But they can only be your target audience if your goods or services match their needs or wants. Every selling proposition moves a potential customer either closer to desire or further away from pain so your products or solutions have to be tailored to their needs or wants. You should be looking at your products or services and seeing have they fit in with what your clients want and not with what you want, or your family wants, or even what your employees want. Let's have a look at some examples to illustrate the point I'm trying to make .... 1. You're a self-employed plumber who insists that your customers pay cash and there's no paper work ... your customers actually want a receipt and written guarantee with the option to pay with a debit card 2. You're a self-employed plumber who doesn't take cash, provides a receipt for all of your work, and gives a guarantee ... your customers want the cheapest possible price and want to pay cash 3. You design a rain proof coat from a special material meaning that it is dry again within minutes no matter how wet it is. Comes with a hefty price tag ... your customers are happy with an inexpensive fold away coat These aren't particularly great examples but what I'm trying to do is illustrate the fact that you can't sell what your audience doesn't want or need. So in practical terms what do your products or services do to meet the needs or wants of your target market? Are there things you could add to your service that would increase the positive experience of your customer? Actions Take a look at the products or services you offer to your customers and check ... Are you providing the ideal service or product for your customers ... for example, if you sold wood flooring do you provide a delivery service? 1. Could you improve your customers experience ... for example if you sold wood flooring could you provide videos on your website or from the manufacturer on how to fit it correctly? Could you happily recommend tradesmen who would enhance or compliment your local brand to ensure it is fitted properly thereby giving them the floor they dreamed about? 2. If you do provide 'free' delivery do you offer a discount if they take it away themselves for customers who want the keenest prices? 3. Could you create sample packs of your flooring with a deposit (to encourage them to return to your business) so that they can go home with the samples and choose the exact colour or finish they wanted? 4. Take that one step further ... could you send someone to their house (by appointment) to show them a selected range and receive advice on which way the floor could be laid to reduce costs or achieve a better finish? Final Note Don't forget, as a local business owner, the greatest source of information for all of these types of questions are your current customers. As them what they thought of your service, your products etc. What would they have been willing t pay more for and what would did they not like paying for? Answering these questions will enable you to provide a range of products or services. Again, as an example using the flooring we were discussing earlier ... Product A - discounted price on your flooring, take it away today Product A - regular price with free delivery Product A - premium price with free delivery and free fitting by guaranteed tradesman It doesn't matter what you sell or do, every product or service can have various price points and packages. Take the time to look at your business if you are providing the goods or services your customers are looking for or are they going elsewhere, to your competitors because you don't meet their needs?

After completing this course you will be able to explain innovation and how it is being used by today’s managers. Organizational change is defined as the adoption of a new idea or behavior by an organization. Sometimes change and innovation are spurred by forces outside the organization. Other times, managers within the company see a need for product or service innovations, for creating greater efficiencies in operations, or for other alterations to keep the organization profitable. Two concepts that address the need for change in today’s environment are disruptive innovation and the ambidextrous approach. Every organization must change and innovate to survive.

Organizational change is defined as the adoption of a new idea or behavior by an organization. Sometimes change and innovation are spurred by forces outside the organization. Other times, managers within the company see a need for product or service innovations, for creating greater efficiencies in operations, or for other alterations to keep the organization profitable. Two concepts that address the need for change in today’s environment are disruptive innovation and the ambidextrous approach. Disruptive innovation refers to innovations in products, services, or processes that radically change competition in an industry, such as the advent of streaming video or e-books. An ambidextrous approach means incorporating structures and processes that are appropriate for both the creative impulse and the systematic implementation of innovations. Every organization must change and innovate to survive. Change is all about a transformation or modification. Resistance to change is one explanation for why implementing change is so difficult. People resist change for several reasons, and understanding the reasons is a good start toward knowing how to bring about needed change in organizations. These reasons for resistance are legitimate in the eyes of employees affected by the change. Managers should not ignore resistance; instead, they should diagnose the reasons and design strategies to gain acceptance by users. Many people prefer the status quo and tend to resist change. The biggest obstacle to organizational change is the fear of personal loss. Other reasons why people resist change are lack of understanding and trust, uncertainty, and different assessments and goals.

Product innovation has been described as the way out of today's difficult business environment. However, the rate of success of development projects, in particular white space or disruptive innovation projects remains too low. We believe that a reason for the low success rate is the erroneous application of methods designed for incremental innovation like Stage Gate to projects with high levels of uncertainty. In this presentation we will discuss the different types of development projects based on degree of uncertainty, and the creation of different project tracks. Projects are managed using different tool sets based on the best fit between information available and decision making needs.

Full course: https://www.udemy.com/4-strategies-for-product-and-service-management/?couponCode=PROMONOW Revitalization Strategy The second type of strategy for managing existing and mature products is revitalization. This requires lots of planning and supervision, and is the most commonly used strategy when managing existing and mature products. Its purpose is to revitalize the sales of products that should be performing strongly but, for various reasons, have instead started to falter and decline. There are three revitalization approaches: make changes to your product that add value; reposition your product; and extend the customer base. Make changes that add value Re-evaluating and reassessing products is part of the make changes that add value approach. This enables companies to redefine their products and remain at the cutting edge. A company needs to identify and explore opportunities for adding value to its products. This can be achieved by tweaking or enhancing existing features. Looking at possible options for combining two products to form a new, more innovative product, also features in this approach. And operations managers can also look at ways to improve the processes surrounding the manufacturing and delivery of the product so that better value is offered to the customer. Reposition your product There are two separate strands to the reposition your product approach. The first consists of creating a new position for an existing product so that it can regain its competitiveness. This new position and posture can give a product new impetus. The second strand, called break-away positioning, involves reducing the product down to a spartan state. All non-essential features are stripped away rather than added. The product is then studied to see how it can be altered or modified in a way that will appeal to specific customer groups. Extend the customer base The extend the customer base approach seeks to increase sales volume by getting more customers to use the product. To boost the user rate, the company must win over customers from its competitors, enter new markets, or convert complete non-users of the product into users. To achieve these targets, the company must identify why customers buy from the competition, what favorable market opportunities exist, and how to turn non-users into users. Examples - Revitalization Strategy Here's how a company makes changes that add value to its product. A medium-sized commercial paint manufacturing company produces a successful line of spray paint for customizing cars. Sales of this strong product have dipped. The company decides to invest in new process machinery that will allow this product to be incorporated into the mainstream (...)

Innovation is the process that generates value through the creation, development, and implementation of new technologies, products and services. For commercial organisations value may be expressed as increased market share, revenues, profit or shareholder returns. For public sector organisations value is focused on improved efficiency and enhanced service delivery. Processes need to be managed, and therefore innovation is a management task. This comes as something of a surprise to many organisations. Some believe that innovation is a mysterious phenomenon that occurs randomly as a series of ‘light bulb’ moments. Others believe that innovation can be achieved by throwing copious amounts of money into a room full of boffins, microscopes and whiteboards and then standing well back. Good luck with these approaches. A few organisations believe that innovation is not required at all, and instead focus on relentless cost cutting. They then receive an unpleasant surprise when their customers eventually leave for innovative competitors who can better serve their needs. In order to better understand and (hopefully) avoid these pitfalls Innovation Management has become a rapidly growing area of interest for both management practitioners and academic researchers. This Innovation Management Masterclass by expert Dr Mike Kennard is designed for Business, Management, Engineering and Technology students studying Innovation Management based courses, particularly at Masters and MBA level. In addition, this Masterclass is also aimed at professional managers, executives and directors charged with ‘innovating’ (this means you). The Masterclass covers the drivers for innovation, why companies that don't innovate become extinct, definitions of innovation, characteristics of innovation, a risk exercise and short case study on Apple's iPhone.

This is an example of one of my video lectures. In this lesson I teach students how to write a business case for a proposed innovation. In previous lessons the students have learned how to identify unmet customer needs and generate innovative ideas to meet those needs. After watching this video they are required to write a compelling business case to support their proposed innovation. I structure the course around a case-study business, so each student pretends they are proposing an innovative product or service to the management team of that business. In face-to-face tutorials the students present and discuss their innovative ideas. This is a great mechanism to encourage peer discussion and learning.

There is no doubt that innovation is key to progress. Companies worldwide invest millions per year on the development of new products and services that will ensure their economic sustainability. However, innovation is a challenging endeavor that requires strategic thinking, customer focus, the right organizational climate, and an effective management approach. Designers, with their specific skills, can take a major part in driving innovation. This is already successfully happening in companies like SAP, Pepsi-Co and Philips, where design professionals play a leading role in steering innovation. Inspired by these cases, this design course is aimed at designers who would like to take a more active role in the innovative efforts of companies, and who want to go beyond executing new product/service design briefs.
