Dynamic Business Models for Dealing with Competition

by | Mar 21, 2024

In the latest webinar of the System Dynamics for Business Innovation special series, Kim Warren delved into Dynamic Business Models for Dealing with Competition. This session, rich in practical advice and strategic insights, is pivotal for professionals seeking to sharpen their competitive edge. Here’s a breakdown of the webinar’s key points.

Key Takeaways from the Webinar:

  1. Understanding Competitive Dynamics: The session focused on the use of dynamic business models to navigate competitive business environments. Warren highlighted the importance of understanding how competition plays out in real-time and the impacts on prices, marketing spending, and profits.
  2. Case Studies and Applications: Warren used two illustrative case studies to demonstrate the practical application of these models. He discussed GSK’s travel vaccines business and its response to a new competitor, and Beyond Meat’s strategy in creating a market for non-meat products. Both cases highlighted the strategic challenges and responses in dynamic competitive environments.
  3. Types of Competition: Warren outlined three standard competition mechanisms, covering most competitive scenarios. These include racing to capture new potential customers, maintaining existing customers while attracting competitors’ customers, and handling situations where customers can switch between suppliers.
  4. Practical Strategy Development: The session also touched upon practical aspects of strategic planning, like leveraging dynamic models for both long-term strategy and short-term operational decision-making.
