Disrupt Or Be Disrupted! Three Ways Marketers Can Anticipate and Exploit Dramatic Industry Changes

November 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Featuring International Innovation Experts, Gary Fraser And Bryan Mattimore

Global competition, increased M & A activity, and the pace of technological advances have placed established US brands in jeopardy of losing significant market share and/or entire businesses from unanticipated competitive incursions.


Three new strategic, marketing-innovation methodologies: Disruptive War Gaming, Disruptive Business Modeling, and Disruptive Technology Solutions, pioneered by the innovation agency Growth Engine, can help marketers both anticipate, and proactively create growth opportunities in response to potentially devastating industry disruptions.


In this interactive, “minds-on” presentation, Growth Engine Innovation Agency cofounders, Bryan Mattimore and Gary Fraser, will share the how-to’s of three cutting-edge strategic-innovation planning methodologies they have created and successfully applied that enable their Fortune 500 clients to anticipate and exploit industry disruptions.


Disruptive War Gaming sessions helps marketers identify winning growth strategies by engaging marketing and sales teams in competitive role-playing, “war game” exercises of both traditional competitors, and potential industry disruptors such as Amazon, Google, or Apple.


Disruptive Business Modeling is a strategically-directed, new-idea generation workshop that uses empirically-validated ideation techniques such as strategic continuums and problem re-definition to help established businesses create unexpected, potentially industry-disrupting, new business models. 


Disruptive Technology Solutions is a future-focused innovation methodology that identifies unexpected technologies that could potentially disrupt – or drive – business growth. The process includes identifying nontraditional partners, often ones that have a breakthrough technology, that can then lead to new joint ventures, R & D initiatives, licensing, and/or acquisition opportunities.
