SIMTech Product Solution Seminar : understanding customers = winning products

Date: 08 Aug 2006 - 08 Aug 2006

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3, Tower Block, SIMTech, 71 Nanyang Drive

Introduction

understanding customers = winning products… how companies can leverage a better understanding of the customer to design for business success.

With the onset of globalisation, the world economy has thrown up new types of business models. Suddenly, the marketplace seems like alien territory – What used to be once rather exclusive, familiar environments for businesses to sell their wares are, overnight, more like bazaars - in its rawest form, products are competing side-by-side, feature-by-feature, performance-by-performance, dollar-for-dollar. In the globalised economy, the balance of power has shifted firmly towards the customer.

Against this backdrop, how does an individual business maximise its success in the marketplace? How can companies minimise the risks of bringing new products to market ? How can companies continually create products that win over their customers ?
This seminar explores how companies can answer these questions and minimise new product risks through a good understanding of the markets, opportunities and customers; and to maximise the success of new products in the marketplace by developing an in-depth understanding of its customers.
