Last step of an interview process, I’ve received a case study where a new player enters the market with a cheaper and better proposition. Not dramatic movement of the market has been detected, but customers are asking for similar offers and the market seems to loose its “dynamics”. The client is asking my firm to develop a strategy to fend its clients data base and revenue stream from the new player.
