Create Growth Strategies
White Space Business Model
Competitive Advantage Is Dead
On average, an S&P 500 company is now being replaced once every two weeks.
The churn rate of companies is on the rise still.
Startups have found disruptive forces that have wiped our revenues at giants such as Kodak, Woolworth, Nokia and more.
Traditional approaches to strategy look to the past to predict the future. They build from the past to the future.
They are facing the wrong way.
We believe that when you take a “future back” approach to setting strategy, you can build new paths to growth that have not yet been imagined. These are the WHITE SPACES

The 3C Model
White Space Business Model
The term white space means an overlooked market, an underserved one. It may be serving a new customer or an existing one in a radically new manner. White Space is creating an entirely new market—or significantly transforming an existing one.
The chance to capture the white space presents an exponential opportunity. But it’s also an area where assumptions are high and knowledge is low—the opposite of conditions in the company’s core space.
The white space is where companies can go into places while serving new customers in new ways or even serving existing customers in significantly different ways.
Minimum Viable Transformation System
Determining the gap between growth goals and current operations
Creating distinct core and new-growth innovation efforts
Identifying priority areas to explore that align with what customers need and you can deliver
Creating a small, dedicated innovation team and embedding with the team on its first set of projects
Ensuring the right mechanisms and leadership are in place to accelerate good ideas
Preserve The Core. Exploit The New.
This dual approach allows incumbents to realize the most value from their current assets and advantages, while giving the new initiative the time it needs to grow.
