Our Competitive Landscape exercise is a valuable resource for businesses that want to stay ahead of the competition. By completing this exercise, you’ll gain a better understanding of your competitors’ strengths and weaknesses, which will inform your design and marketing initiatives. It’s simple and easy to follow, and it’s a great starting point for creating effective design solutions. According to McKinsey Insights March 2023 “Having an articulate competitive analysis and a good landscape of what the other solutions are and what makes you better than the others is important.” The issue is most businesses have a siloed approach, only caring about their service or product, which leaves them unable to explain why their product or service is better for the customer.
