While innovation and product development will always be at the heart of consumer products companies, today’s market is increasingly transparent. From a consumer performing a price comparison using a smartphone app, to the eco-minded consumer who can Google whether your company is socially responsible, the emerging transparent marketplace presents unique challenges in our increasingly connected world.

 

In response, consumer brands have been forced to transcend the old rules that run deep within the industry — easier said than done. Senior leaders know that they need employees who are able to see things anew, quickly perceive shifts in the marketplace, and understand how to leverage new rules to improve financial performance.
