Advantage / Growth

Situation Description

The situation is characterized by the need of a company to create and/or sustain financial growth by the means of developing innovations that will gain strategic advantage. They are also known as Strategic Innovations.

GTI Approach

The overwhelmiing majority of competitors attempt to create growth by developing innovations providing a better solution. While improving an offering, a better / cheaper/ faster solution to a known need does not ensure strategic advantage and growth.

GTI insists on using a different path that has a much greater potential for gaining competitive advantage and generating growth. Specifically, GTI states that identification of Unique and Meaningful needs (aka the RIGHT Problems) is required to drastically increase the odds of growth creation. Based on the underlying logic of the evolution of products and services, GTI enables reliable identification of the RIGHT Problems and has 6 Strategies to do so. The GTI methodology of uncovering these strategic opportunities is called Design for Advantage™. It is designed for identifying, prioritizing, selecting, and solving the RIGHT Problems.

The Design for Advantage™ was tested multiple times with Fortune 500 clients and showed its great effectiveness. To ensure robust performance, the Design for Advantage™ methodology has multiple unique tools and techniques, among them:

  • The Laws of Evolution
