Our product is a fashionable premium smart wearable gene changing watch. The watch helps stimulating muscle growth by the following steps: analyse personal body composition, customized software, enhancing muscle gains on specific body type. For instance, chancing the protein synthesis based on your body type. Our product is different, because we offer better quality, more features and specific software based on body type. Our strategy is mainly focused on expanding our research, so we have a 100% product-market fit. Furthermore, we focused mainly on status, superiority and personality so we can offer a premium product. We divided our budget over the block with our focus in mind. We didn’t change our customer segment vision, because we were already on our road to success. We offer premium products which comes with a premium price. Besides that, we offer a subscription that offers a customized service. The service gives detailed training schedules and tracks your body functions, like heart rate, temperature and blood composition (oxygen etc.). The premium price is in line with our premium high-quality product. The watch offers innovative features and is very fashionable. By using a subscription-based model, we can offer our customer a customized service to immerse their experience. Due to a premium price we can afford extensive research and meet our customers’ demands by offering continuous innovative products. We have specialised people in our team which enables us to teach our colleagues on how to handle growth. For example, if there is a higher demand for employees within our company. Team managers have to be ready to give the right functions and assign the right tasks. We are ready to set up the market!

Team Strategy:

Our product idea is a new innovative glasses with gene technologies. What makes our product different for the market is the style of the product. People want to pay more for our product because it gives them a kind of status compared to the competitors in the market. Our revenue model is simple, we will set up the selling price of the good by adding profits and overhead charges to our cost price. We can set high prices because of the superior quality of our product. Moreover, people are willing to pay for products of such quality like this glasses, then we will be able to establish a margin between our purchases and our sales. Our team is ready for growth. We have a young team with lots of ideas and we have a good product that is likely to penetrate many markets. We think our team could be more: Analysing: to better understand the customer and make a product that suits him better Efficient: to work more efficiently without wasting time on things that don’t matter Proactive: to bounce back more easily and make product changes after customer reviews Strategic: to make choices may be riskier but could help us to develop a product that corresponds to the customer Currently, we believe that we have no ‘unfair advantages’ to our competitors. Our description about our customer is really vague and incomplete. This is also seen in the content of the pains and gains of our customer description. Therefore, it is hard for us to go with one customer segment. If we look at the other team, we’ve noticed that they have far more discovered traits that their customer likes. This is due to the fact that they put a lot of points in research. So did we (80 points each round), but this still resulted in us only having 4 discovered traits. A mere fraction of what the other companies. In conclusion, we do not have any advantages with regards to our competitors. “Our strategy for this round is different in comparison to the previous rounds. In the previous rounds, we mainly focused on research. We have now obtained information about our customers, but there are still some things to discover. That is why we also will spend points on research this round, but not as much as in the earlier rounds. We want to focus on other parts of the model right now. Our most important goal is to focus on putting a product together. So the points will be mainly used for value proposition.”

Customer Jobs: We’ve called our persona Jim. Jim may be interested in a wearable that is based on gene-technology. Jim has been an experimental personal all his life. For example. Jim was the first person to buy a drone in his neighborhood, but sadly crashed it after a week. When his neighbors asked, he said he did not like the look of it anyway and therefore it did not matter to him.

Pains: His neighbors were a bit astounded by Jim’s lack of care in regards to the drone but as Jim always says: ”It’s not about reaching the top of the mountain but the way towards it.”. After one these fun days of experimenting, Jim likes to relax in his Fritz Hansen chair, smoke an eco-friendly cigar and listen to the newest hits of Ariana Grande, which just came out that day.

Gains: Jim made a lot of friends while being as reckless as he his. Not that Jim cares, because Jim knows that he will have friends in the end. The people that do not like Jim is the bank. Jim has debts that are only increasing instead of decreasing and the bank is considering to freeze Jim’s assets. Jim made a fortune in the dotcom bubble but is also burning money as if it grows on trees.
