Disruption is simply changing the rules of the game in a competitive market. This can be as simple as a business model that alters the basic economics to technology that offer unique capabilities. Disruption can also mean being first to market with solutions customer’s value just before they realize they need it. This type of market disruption comes from both having deeply trusted relationships with customers and understanding their needs in ways that reveal their needs before others.

How is this possible? Two factors are at play. If we look at what customers say they value, we are looking into the rear-view mirror. For what they tell us is based upon what they buy or what they sell. The truth of their needs lies with what they believe which is the basis of their choices. These beliefs, which they are often not aware of is a more accurate indicator of what they value and why.

The second factor is the level of trust customers have with your company. If this is deep and you know what questions to ask, you can build a unique view of what matter most to your clients in real time. Understanding this perspective creates an unassailable road map to short- and long-term market leadership.

During this interactive event, we will share multiple examples of companies uses this approach and win big. We will give you simple steps you can apply to alter your understanding of your customer’s needs and what to do to offer greater value than others.
