Understanding Your Customers is Key
to Driving Innovation, Value & Project Success

Is your growth strategy based on an unmet, highly valuable customer need? Have you
ever missed a customer need—one that is not fulfilled by any product or service that is now on the market? The identification of customer needs in context requires a deep understanding of customer’s experiences. Today it seems the only sustainable competitive advantage is for you to know your customers better than your competition.

Successful organizations have a proven effective process in place to obtain and utilize Voice Of the Customer (VOC) to identify new opportunities, grow substantial and sustainable new revenue and improve margins. Eliciting the VOC while balancing with Voice of the Business (VOB), is an extremely important part of the new product development process. It forms a checkpointed basis for design and marketing decisions from concept development through product launch.

This program describes a 2-stage, 8-step process that includes voice of customer driven innovation and high-performance execution. We’ll touch on four case studies, ranging from a $2M engineering services company, to a $1B network infrastructure solution company resulting in:
• patent pending solutions that turned operating income from negative to 8%,
• a new service offering that achieved 10% operating income in the 1st year,
• 65% gross margin services offering that exceeded initial revenue targets.
