Creating Value to Disrupt Markets
Most products and services are changed incrementally: Features are added, prices decrease. However, every so often we are presented with something that changes the status quo in a significant way: for example, the ability to use phones instead of desktop computers for browsing the internet and go to a local pharmacy instead of a doctor’s office for a vaccination. This is market disruption. It can be a tremendous source of growth for new entrants and established firms alike and can impact all aspects of the business environment, from competition and pricing to regulation. In this chapter, we will explore issues such as : What are market disruptions? How do we best prepare to introduce a new product or rethink an existing product? How can we create the type of value that allows for market disruptions? What are the types of market disruptions? The frameworks introduced in this chapter will allow us to observe changes in the competitive landscape and determine if whether new or updated products are merely novel or have the potential to change the way we do business in a more significant way.
