You know the market is about to change again....

In this workshop, we'll explore how to position your business for success in that environment: how to find profitable market space, protect your margins, and forge connections with right-fit customers. Many companies have used positioning strategies successfully through previous down markets, and we've compiled the most valuable lessons learned. Those same strategies work for other changes inside and around your company, too: we've seen them guide leadership transitions, market shifts, acquisitions, and growth spurts. 
As a business leader, you’ll walk away with:

  • How to find and claim profitable, uncrowded market space.
  • Protect and expand healthy margins.
  • Achieve the efficiency and excitement that come with focus and alignment.
