Celemi Livon™: Differentiate or Die
Celemi Livon™ teaches participants what it takes to adapt a single (global) corporate strategy to local market conditions. Specifically, it is about communicating a precise, consistent company identity while differentiating from local competitors!
Celemi Livon™ is an innovative business tool that helps companies stand out from the competition! It is well suited to:
- businesses needing strong alignment between franchise, retail or other operations and the central sales and marketing strategy
- smaller, independent companies looking to identify or strengthen their market niche
- any organization looking to reinforce its competitive advantages and capture greater market share
The overriding challenge in this board-based Celemi business simulation is to build and retain a profitable customer base. To be successful, you need a strong market position as well as the ability to defend it.
Celemi Livon™ is a one-day, interactive business training simulation designed to help organizations with widespread sales and distribution networks communicate a precise, consistent identity while differentiating themselves in a highly competitive marketplace.
During Celemi Livon™, four competing retailers (teams) take part in a struggle for the same customers in a growing market. Their key objective: to attract and retain customers in a competitive atmosphere where product positioning, communication, price, prestige and reputation all come in to play.
Successful teams will have a clearly defined market segment, and make the most effective use of marketing tactics - often requiring subtle shifts in strategy along the way.
"We can count on success only if our dealers earn money, so it makes sense for us to help them to do a good job in their local markets, and to make good use of the things we do at headquarters, like marketing campaigns, etc. For work of this kind, Celemi Livon™ is an outstanding tool."
At the start, the four retailers are "all over the place". As a management team, their job is to decide on their desired market position, and capture it in the most cost-effective way:
- Go for the high end of the market, or the low end?
- Pursue a unique niche, or attack a competitor's stronghold?
- Build capacity in advance, or wait for the demand to grow?
- Compete on differentiation, or on price?
- Defend an achieved position at all costs, or move to another?
