Planning for Business Disruptions: Why you need to ask “What If?”

Planning for Business Disruptions: Why you need to ask “What If?” | TVD Associates | Scoop.it
While senior executives cannot be expected to read tea leaves and predict the future, they can be expected to engage in Scenario Analysis to help them envision alternative futures. Operational strategy answers the question, “what now.” Strategic planning answers the question, “what next.” Scenario planning answers the question, “what if.” Scenario analysis identifies drivers whose impact on the business is uncertain yet highly impactful. Such drivers are then run through plausibility analysis to identify conceivable alternate futures. Once such futures are identified, the firm can seek strategic imperatives to mitigate or leverage their impact.

With some ingenious strategy, Steve Jobs and his team took about 15 years to transform Apple into the most valuable company in the world.

 

But while we are all witness to the end result, there was a lot of research and heavy thinking that went into developing that strategy. What if we could get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Apple visionary at work?

2015 Online Marketing Industry Survey

2015 Online Marketing Industry Survey | TVD Associates | Scoop.it

Let's dig in. Almost half (49%) of our 2015 respondents involved in search marketing were in-house marketers. In-house teams still tend to be small – 71% of our in-house marketers reported only 1-3 people in their company being involved in search marketing at least quarter-time. These teams do have substantial influence, though, with 86% reporting that they were involved in purchasing decisions.

 

Agency search marketers reported larger teams and more diverse responsibilities. More than one-third (36%) of agency marketers in our survey reported working with more than 20 clients in the previous year. Agencies covered a wide range of services, with the top 5 being...

How to Get Your Content Published on Influential Websites

How to Get Your Content Published on Influential Websites | TVD Associates | Scoop.it
Guest publication: it’s the proverbial “Holy Grail” of content marketing. By getting published on influential sites, you raise brand awareness and position yourself as a leading industry expert. Guest publications can, however, be a double-edged sword. Like traditional marketing, guest articles are all about getting the right content to the right person at the right time.

Without a clear strategy in place from day one, you can end up exerting considerable time and effort on guest articles that never get published, end up being published on the wrong website (and fail to reach your target audience), or lack the substantive content to make a lasting impact on your target audience. You can also get penalized by search engines by partaking in guest blogging sites that are not reputable. No pressure, right?

Crafting the perfect guest article doesn’t have to be an earth-moving task. Get your guest blogging initiative off to the right start with our 4-step guide.

How can business planning activate your purpose?

How can business planning activate your purpose? | TVD Associates | Scoop.it

To navigate change, businesses are rethinking their purpose to drive innovation and growth. A strong purpose focuses the business strategy on delivering value and meaning for customers, employees and other stakeholders. Ultimately, this delivers value for all stakeholders. However, organizations’ planning capabilities are not keeping pace with the speed at which businesses are transforming. Businesses cannot capitalize on opportunities created by their transformations if they are not able to quickly realign plans, budgets and forecasts continuously reallocating resources. Put simply, in order to deliver their corporate purpose, organizations need to rethink their planning processes to help make it happen. They need to use purpose as a mechanism to activate positive change.

How Big Data Can Drive Competitive Intelligence

How Big Data Can Drive Competitive Intelligence | TVD Associates | Scoop.it

Companies increasingly mine their own customer data for insights into the market. But what about data that tracks your competitors’ activities – in an ethical but profitable way? It’s time for businesses to start a competitive intelligence process — while lowering the cost of analyzing information. In short, you need to continuously gather data online, from social media, website changes, news sources, and posted documents online, looking for clever bits of gold in the digital stream. You’ll need to blend baseline of competitive intelligence (to prevent surprises in your own business) with proprietary data sets obtained on the market (to create surprises –you’re your rivals). Indeed, a universe of third-party data can add context to internal marketing data and can provide strategic insight into the vulnerabilities of competitors. Consider these three market trends:
