Polymorphic Service Propositions.

Polymorphic Service Propositions.

What if you could design a service proposition once and use it for multiple customer segments, meeting needs arising in different situations? Then you would have the initial ingredients of what we at Neos Chronos call a “polymorphic service proposition” (abbreviated as PSP). This article provides a quick introduction into the concept and highlights a number of reasons why a CEO, CMO, CTO of a company should care to learn more and act.

A Primer to Communications Security.

There are many good reasons behind securing communications within the enterprise and across enterprise borders as part of a company’s Business Information Security strategy. Undoubtedly, “preventing unauthorized interceptors from accessing telecommunications in an intelligible form, while still delivering content to the intended recipients” is mandatory for any enterprise (asset protection) and any individual (privacy protection).

A simple model for Sales Success.

A simple model for Sales Success.

We live in a connected world. Easy access to information, human capital, and production facilities means that “anyone” can replicate a product, service or delivery process. In that context, sales models that are based on presenting and arguing for “unique” value are either failing or, in the best case, challenged to deliver results. In this article we present an alternative sales model that defines the uniqueness of what is offered to a customer in terms of the company’s identity: its purpose, its core values, and the sum of its employees who live and breathe those values towards customers. Focusing on the company’s identity, rather than what a company does and how it does it, results in a simple and highly effective framework for sales success, that is universally applicable and hard to imitate.

Starting from the user’s daily life and journey offers a natural way to identify user tasks whose execution can be improved. The inherent clarity of this approach makes it easier to choose the most appropriate technology to create improvements to user experience. As an example, we look at how shopping experience evolved and how technology has enabled this evolution.
