Agile, responsive strategy for a world in motion.

What is in a Market Playbook?

Category Cornerstones

Assembled from transaction data, surveys, focus groups, home visits, shopper observations, and the FACES test, Category Cornerstones are clear, succinct and powerful insights about your industry, category and target audience.

Design Pillars

Design Pillars are the pathway from insight to implementation. By combining two or more Category Cornerstones, we generate guidelines for executing any market intervention no matter the task – marketing, partnerships, product or service design, retail strategy.

Implementation Checklist & Scorecard

To avoid the all too common pitfall of failing to propagate insights and knowledge across the organization, our Market Playbook codifies your Design Pillars into an easy-to-use checklist and scorecard; embedding them into your existing processes.

Consumer Journey

Armed with clear guidelines for pursuing success with your target audience, we show how to apply the design pillars to all 7 stages of the customer journey: Discovery → Consideration → Conversion → Purchase → Evaluation → Repeat Purchase → Brand Advocate

Your Market Playbook may also contain recommendations for new routes to market, ways to activate, partnerships and engagement models. Finally, we offer our recommendation for what metrics to track and how often.
