Start an Alliance Manage My Alliance
We've learned that success rests on proactive lifecycle management. This is true of companies and products, and ecosystems are no different.
Having worked with industry ecosystems since 1993, we know that it is important to evolve and adapt alliances to the unique opportunities and challenges presented within each phase of the lifecycle. As the alliance progresses from launch to growth to maturity, we can help determine whether there is opportunity to reset or it is time to sunset.
"It’s Not Just About Starting Something
It’s About Managing the Lifecycle"
Given our years of experience in helping alliances progress through the lifecycle successfully, we know how best to answer key questions associated with lifecycle management:
- How should your focus change as you transition through the lifecycle?
- What are the key programs and investments that will drive success at each stage?
- In which phases should budgets be allocated more to marketing, technology, or other programs, and when should they be in balance?
- Where in the lifecycle should you start thinking about certification and compliance?
- When does developer outreach and market education kick in?
- What can be done to minimize the maturity stage?
- Is it time to sunset or is there an opportunity reset?
If you have questions about these elements, contact us, and we will respond promptly with some fresh thoughts and ideas.
