BRIEF INTRODUCTION

The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) boasts boatloads of brands. The world's top maker of household products courts market share and billion-dollar names. It's divided into three global units: household care, beauty and grooming, and health and well-being. The firm also makes pet food and water filters and produces a soap opera. Two dozen of P&G's brands are billion-dollar sellers, including Febreze, Fusion, Always, Braun, Bounty, Charmin, Crest, Downy/Lenor, Gillette, Iams, Olay, Pampers, Pantene, Tide, and Wella, among others. P&G shed its coffee in 2008 and it's selling Pringles. Being the acquisitive type, with Clairol and Wella as notable conquests, P&G's biggest buy in company history was Gillette in 2005.

HOW LAFLEY PREDICTS FUTURE

• Lafley noted the importance of growth as a strategy.

• Instead of maintaining old growth, P&G must carefully move into related markets and literally create new categories of business.

• To accomplish that goal requires innovation –in thinking, in developing new products, and in marketing them.

• “So the name of the game is innovation” says Lafley, “We work really hard to try to turn innovation into a strategy and a process that’s a little more consistent, a little more reliable, so that we can build a portfolio of innovations and get the yield we need to get that $6 billion or $7 billion a year.”

“CONNECT AND DEVELOP”

• Launching new products requires careful planning at all levels –strategic, tactical, and operational.

• Lafley orchestrated a major shift in the way firm develoeped new products.

• Instead of relying solely on a complex, bureaucratic research and development organization, P&G now uses a new approach called “Connect & Develop.”

• It is based on ideas P&G should gather and learn from innovations and technologies that exists outside the company’s wall.

• All activities are aligned to create products that consumers want to use.

• Olay regenerist anti-aging products, Crest spinbrush toothbrush are the yield of connect & develop programme.

ASSESSING OUTCOMES AND SEIZING OPPORTUNITIES

• Historically the giant told consumers what they needed and wanted, but now Lafley has shifted its focus directly on consumers and asks for their input up front.

• This new outlook drives all of P&G’s planning and strategy, which includes broadcasting commercials created by consumers and building online communities dedicated to consumers’ favourite P&G products.

• “Most of [these] Experiment don’t work all the time, but we have to be out there, trying.” says Lafley.

• Lafley endorses the idea of pleasantly surprising consumers this way-catching their attention when they least expect it and offering an immediate solution to a problem.

• Briefly, P&G has found that consumers will build the brands themselves.23 March 2014
