PHASE 1: MARKET INTELLIGENCE

Validate the needs of your market so your products can achieve a competitive advantage.

 

Every day, products that are seemingly great ideas are launched. Often, they either don’t meet user expectations, or simply fail. The potential causes are plentiful: not having the right market intelligence to understand what the market problem is that you are solving, who the players are, what features are critical to the customer, the market size and if it is growing, or who are the users and buyers. With the right market intelligence program, these areas are monitored on a regular cadence to understand what is happening in the market, to identify the emerging trends, and to provide insights on how products can be successful.
