Boston Strategy Week

This 5-day seminar shows you how to develop differentiation strategies and implement them successfully in an increasingly networked world.

CONCEPT

Differentiation from the competition must be the goal of every company and every strategy. Only companies that fashion a unique identity and outperform the competition will achieve sufficient market share and creat above-average, long-term value.

The broad lines of this reasoning were laid out by Mchael Porter almost thirty years ago in his book on competitive strategy. Porter`s ideas have lost neither their importance nor their validity.

This 5-day seminar shows you how to develop differentiation strategies and implement them successfully in an increasingly networked world. Using numerous case studies and exercises, you learn how to:

  • Find attractive markets and market segments
  • Position businesses and services in the market
  • Build tenable, long-term core competencies
  • Bring innovations succesfully to market
  • Achieve superior, long-lasting results
