Application: Strategic Planning
Mapped distribution tiers and channel shares, analyzed customers’ unmet needs and identified inefficiencies in the value chain. Involved value chain structure research and customer research.
Methods: Secondary research and analysis
Products were grouped into opportunity segments and a distribution strategy recommended for each group.
