You Can Benefit from a Rival’s New Product - Harvard Business Review

When a company comes out with a new product, its competitors typically go on the defensive, doing whatever they can to reduce the odds that the offering will eat into their sales. Responses might include cranking up marketing efforts, offering discounts to channel partners, and even lobbying for regulations that would hinder the rival’s expansion. In many cases, though, such actions are misguided. Although the conventional wisdom that a rival’s launch will hurt profits is often correct, my research shows that companies sometimes see profits increase after a rival’s rollout—even when they don’t aggressively seek ways to squelch the new product’s sales.

 

The underlying mechanism is pretty simple: When a company extends a product line, it often raises the prices of its existing products. The hikes might be designed to make the new product look cheaper and thus more attractive by comparison or to capture the value customers place on a broader line of offerings. As that company adjusts its pricing, its competitors can follow suit without risking customer defections over price.

 

Consider what happened when Yoplait became the first major producer to market low-fat yogurt in the United States. Although Dannon took a 5% hit in units sold during the new product’s initial year, the vast majority of its customers didn’t defect to Yoplait; they preferred Dannon’s style of yogurt. And because Yoplait had raised prices across its product line, Dannon raised its prices as well, by more than 10%. So despite the 5% decrease in volume, Dannon’s revenue increased by 5%.

Magesh Cannane's insight:

Une première chose à faire est d'évangeliser sur ce qu'est l'innovation. Beaucoup d'entreprises ignorent que l'innovation dans la majeure partie des cas est incrémentale et que les innovations de ruptures sont rares. Cette méconnaissance du terme innovation est en lui même un frein pour les entreprises qui vise la lune (l'innovation de rupture) et abandonne leurs efforts trop rapidement ou ne se lancent même pas dans le chantier d'innovation.

Via Justin Jones
Magesh Cannane's insight:

The very meaning of innovation as taught to people has to be redefined. The common understanding of innovation is reduced to something completely new in the market or industry that changes the rules and standards of usage, disruptive innovation. Innovations are actually localized, bringing something that exists since a while from an another industry or company remains an innovation.

Evangelising on the meaning and types of innovation should be the first job of government agencies to trigger innovation in companies.

Strategic thinking has clarified for us how the world is changing and what our customers may value, and this stimulates new questions that our research has answered.  Research findings provoke a broad range of new ideas across a wide range of internal and external topics.  This is the abundant raw material, and it is already and automatically aligned with our strategic intent because it came about as a result of a direct connection between strategy, portfolio design, and research.

Why Companies Should Have Open Business Models | MIT Sloan Management Review

Why Companies Should Have Open Business Models | MIT Sloan Management Review | Innovation | Scoop.it

Innovation is becoming an increasingly open process thanks to a growing division of labor. One company develops a novel idea but does not bring it to market. Instead, the company decides to partner with or sell the idea to another party, which then commercializes it. To get the most out of this new system of innovation, companies must open their business models by actively searching for and exploiting outside ideas and by allowing unused internal technologies to flow to the outside, where other firms can unlock their latent economic potential.

Asian innovation

Asian innovation | Innovation | Scoop.it
THE Tata Nano, the world's cheapest car, became a symbol before the first one rolled off the production line in 2009. The Tata group, India's most revered conglomerate, hyped it as the embodiment of a revolution. Frugal innovation would put consumer products, of which a $2,000 car was merely a foretaste, within reach of ordinary Indians and Chinese.
Magesh Cannane's insight:
Yeah but the commercial success of Nano is yet to be proved. A Car is not an utility but a luxury in emerging countries, atleast in India. And people don't want it that cheap!

When TED Lost Control of Its Crowd - Harvard Business Review

When TED Lost Control of Its Crowd - Harvard Business Review | Innovation | Scoop.it

The benefits of open innovation are clear. Yet many companies still worry about an approach that involves collaborating and sharing power with many. Openness is indeed risky, as the TED example clearly shows. TED’s army of volunteers has extended its reach to more than 130 countries. But because TED allows nearly anyone to contribute, it no longer completely controls its content or its brand.

There are dozens of different metrics that you can apply to the innovation process. In this excerpt from The Innovation Master Plan, we look at the 12 that are useful to most organizations, as well as the entire set of 92 metrics.

Via Yoann
Magesh Cannane's insight:

Quite agree in terms of metrics but the real issue in innovation is to define the delay from which you can assess the metrics from your innovation process implementation! This is where a clear industrial insights and strategical vision of the board is required to uphold innovation processes on a long run within corporates.
