Engage, Inspire, Act

Engage, Inspire, Act

Three stepstones towards developing more impactful products. Great companies understand the importance of consumer insights when it comes to outperforming the competition. Engagement in learning and keeping knowledge up-to-date through a constant search for new insights, engagement in getting close to consumers and in getting immersed in their daily lives to inspire and understand their reality and the drivers of consumer value, these have proven to be some of the most critical corporate competencies.
Engagement requires different ways of strategic thinking. It requires ‘co-ownership’ of the consumer insights within the organization. This article describes a valuable framework of how to engage and inspire an (R&D) organization via consumer insights, let them act upon the insights and move forward towards developing more impactful products and marketing. The last paragraphs look at how effective different elements of the framework have been in achieving a successful outcome, in order to learn and improve our initial way of working and to fine-tune our overall strategy.
