Urbany & Davis Strategic Circles
The Urbany & Davis approach provides a visual tool to help you think about what you offer, what you customers want and what your competitors offer. It’s a brilliantly simple tool that helps you test your assumptions about whether your offer and those of your competitors meet customer needs or wants. It helps you identify where there are areas of duplication where you might consider collaboration and of course where is untapped potential to meet customer needs and wants.
