Question 1 of 7

Have you recently looked at how you can better use technology in your business?

A

Yes - we have recently reviewed the technology available today and how this might develop in the future. We will be taking action to implement new systems in the next 6 months.

B

Not yet - However we are aware of how new technology might apply to our business.

C

No - not all. I haven't had the time to even begin to think about this.

Question 2 of 7

What is your usual response to new, disruptive technologies when they change your industry?

A

Wow - I've got to get us some of that!

B

That sounds too good to be true - we will have to do some investigating as this could change everything.

C

That won't work! They clearly don't understand how OUR industry really works...

Question 3 of 7

Have you considered how you can turn products into future services and services into future products?

A

Yes - we have a strong product and service development programme within our business. It's constant innovation here.

B

Yes - we have considered several product and service development options but we just haven't actually implemented them yet.

C

No - what a great idea though. I can see this is a clear missed revenue opportunity - something we need to work on right now!

Question 4 of 7

Do you spend time thinking "what must I do to get customers to want to belong to my community/tribe?"

A

Yes - we are very proactive on social media and do our best to bring customers with us on the journey. We love the community we have created. They really are our Tribe!

B

We use social media to try to engage with customers but to be honest it doesn't seem to really work for us... I expect there is much more we could be doing to achieve better results.

C

We don't have a community space for our customers to join in and share. We haven't really embraced social media and probably need a bit of help with this in the future.

Question 5 of 7

Have you thought about how changes in lifestyle or cultural values might transform your industry? e.g. What are the next generation looking for ?

A

We think about this constantly. As part of knowing who our ideal customer is, we are looking to see how their needs will evolve in the future.

B

It is very hard to predict what the next generation want from our industry so we haven't really looked at it yet.

C

Hopefully nothing will change... we like things exactly as they are.

Question 6 of 7

How well do you balance the trade-off between investing in your current products vs. investing in your future industry?

A

It isn't easy but we always try to plan for both long term and short term investments in our business.

B

To be honest just investing in getting current product or services delivered is the most important things for us right now.

Question 7 of 7

Have you recently considered who might be your future potential partners within your industry?

A

Yes - definitely. We have a clear view of the key people we need to partner with in the future and have already started planning an approach.

B

We know that partnering with other businesses will be important in the future but haven't got a plan or definite idea on who and what we might partner together on.

C

Crikey - we haven't even looked at this at all.
