(LIVE BLOG) Growing Value: Meething the Demands of New Consumer Markets While Strengthening Local Value Addition

Panjang bener ya judulnya?

Intinya sesungguhnya “buka pasar baru” dengan penekanan posisi (positioning) baru, yaitu “rasa lokal”. Pendekatan ini tidaklah baru, Pemain baru di satu pasar sebenarnya juga tidak perlu susah “menemukan” teknologi termutakhir, karena hanya perlu “melanjutkan”. Argumen terakhir ini cukup penting, mengingat perang paten kian marak beberapa tahun terakhir (contoh: Apple dan Samsung). Pemain baru kemudian harus memanfaatkan teknologi baru, termasuk media baru yang didorong oleh teknologi termutakhir, agar pemanfaatan pasarnya lebih optimal.
