If you haven’t heard of VUCA, you will soon. It stands for the business climate of the early 21st Century – Volatile, Uncertain, Changing, Ambiguous. In that environment making the wrong strategic decision could be fatal to the business.
The best way to make sure that your customers treat you as a high value supplier is to continually realign your services to their changing needs. This means not just understanding what they’ve needed in the past, which you can get from internal sales data, but where they see themselves evolving in the future.
For that you need to get inside their thinking, which means sitting down face-to-face with their C-Level strategy makers to build a deep and detailed understanding of how they see their businesses’ future challenges and opportunities.
The problem is that CxOs are reluctant to share that with suppliers.
Which is where we can help.
Clients engage the Marketing Doctors to help them get closer to their customers at a strategic level, because we have access to them and are known and trusted for the work we do.
We will meet your customers’ senior management personally, discuss their business challenges and strategies and what they need from our clients to support their own ambitions.
