Creating Markets

  Creating Markets
Content Creating Markets - an interactive session with IMD Professor Stuart Read.
Markets form the foundation of economic exchange, enabling the buying and selling of every product and service available today.  Tomorrow, managers seek to create new products and services so as to bring novelty, differentiation and value to the market.  But some managers are at work shaping, creating and redesigning the very market mechanisms that enable volume and variety in commerce.  And when they are successful, their impact extends well beyond the boundaries of their own offerings, generating value for a constellation of buyers, sellers, and complementary providers.  In the same way that Apple created enormous competitive advantage for the iPhone with the Apple Application Store (a market for applications), Mohammad Yunus generated enormous social impact by creating a micro-credit market. In this session, we will discuss how markets are created, giving executives a better handle on what is arguably the most powerful tool in business.
