Marketing. knowledge and earthquakes have a lot in common. By the time you model and analyze the data the event has already happened. Working after the fact, reactions are behind the curve. And no matter how hard you study the past, it will not give you all that you need to know for the present. You can plan and anticipate, but it can not predict the next event. You can only fall back on everything you know about earthquakes and/or your business - and that resides within knowledge of established habits and practices. In marketing to consumers, only the ability to create new knowledge, that which does not yet exist (so it can not be gathered and measured) can put you in control and position you ahead of the curve to jolt an industry, business, category, segment or brand like the image here.
What do Folgers, Pampers, Tylenol, Coca-Cola and many other products all have in common?

When's the time to perform an EXTREME PRODUCT MAKEOVER? Whenever someone notices product or category sales are slipping.
Course graduates Folgers, Pampers and Tylenol became "billion dollar" (US sales) CPG product lines. (Single lines that sell $1+ billion not brands of many lines). Others followed. Our least successful grad, Baked Lays sold $310 million in 10 months. To date, no one else in the US $2.4 trillion consumer package good industry has launched a single more successful product (Source: IRI).
Are your product or category sales slipping?
