3rd Principle








Using Quality Function Deployment matrix one needs to look into issues that need addressing. Consumer feedback is not evaluated and acted upon by organizations and that could be because of their inability to generate insight. Products and services are created by using new emerging technology without an inkling of what the customer requirements are really are. How is analysis of consumer feedback done? Are the people in the organization apprised of what the customer really expects? Are we catering to meet just the customer satisfaction levels or are we geared up to beat customer expectations?



How is competition analysis done? Are we able to anticipate competitors capabilities and intentions and how does competitor react to our moves in the market place..



Is the organization working towards a common vision and is there a mission statement in place?



In new product development for example have we looked into areas of creating a product which serves multiple utility needs of the consumer. How else can the same product be used differently? Or how can the product be packaged differently differently.



Using Pareto Analysis 80/20 are we able to classify customer feedback into:



* Complaints
* Criticisms
* Suggestions
* Compliments
* Questions



This way we are able to identify the frequency of an issue which needs our attention.

Is it that 80% of customer grievances happen because of a fault in 20% of our products that need our attention. This way we can pinpoint where the problem lies.



Customer satisfaction is based on understanding of threshold of tolerance and service levels. Maybe the dissatisfaction has occurred because of not being able to identify customers threshold of tolerance and maybe it is because of only meeting the accepted levels of service and not the desired levels of service.



One needs to identify non random patterns. Non random patterns in consumer behavior.



Using Dr Juran's tool of 'vital few, trivial many' one needs to identify what are those vital activities in your organization that need the most attention to make your products and services competitive in the marketplace.



What strategy should one be using while making market entry decisions in emerging markets? How relevant is it to go in for glocalisation strategy? How are you equipped to handle cross cultural influences.

2nd Principle


Identify the purpose of information collection by using so what? technique and 5 why technique.



Refine the key intelligence topics.



Identify the single most important issue that needs to be redressed.



Did benchmarking help you isolate the single most important issue that helps you differentiate your clients products and services in the market.



Did the information analysis help you differentiate in terms of :



1. Quality
2. Service
3. Innovation



Are you able to maintain and sustain differentiation. How is the OODA loop working? Is value chain analysis effective? Are you able to generate competitive advantage
