Give a complete and thorough overview of the competitive market. Cover not only the directly competing companies you face (those who offer a very similar product with similar attributes), but also other product variations you may be competing with. For example, if youre selling herbal teas, are you also competing with regular teas? Instant teas? Canned teas? The drink market in general? Review these types of competitors as well as your direct competitors.

A competitive grid helps bring focus and clarity to your decision making via the following:

• Assists your team in boiling down a lot of competitive fact gathering so the team can evaluate the benefits offered by each competitors product/service against benefits sought by the target customer. Benefits can be include all of the four Ps such as product or service benefits, place benefits (like convenience), packaging benefits, price benefits, etc.

• Assists your teams search for a compelling Value Proposition/USP by determining whether there is/are a benefit(s) sought by their target customer that is not being addressed by any competitors. (For example, a water proof Walkman/iPod for surfers.)

• Helps your team evaluate whether a decision not to deliver a benefit will harm or enhance the teams ability to steal customers from the competition. (For example, a lip plumper that does not contain natural bees wax because products with bees wax melt in the sun; their customer would rather trade an organic feature for practicality.)
