The problem statement paints the big picture, which gives urgency and direction to future actions
Traditional customer segmentation is obsolete because every competitor uses the same methodology of segmenting the market either by sectors, geography, customer size and supply mode. That’s why companies compete on the same battlefield, which leads to declining new business, profitability and minimizes stakeholder value
