Transcript of Copy of Case Study: Tchibo Ideas_Group 3

“To ensure that Tchibo continues to develop and sell products that satisfy customers’ needs, the “Tchibo ideas” Internet platform was introduced in the year under review. Consumers can use this platform to enter into dialogue with inventors and designers. Consumers describe their day-to-day problems, and inventors and designers propose solutions and product ideas. Thus, Tchibo gets to know consumers’ wishes better, and designers have the opportunity to produce their ideas with Tchibo. Tchibo can gain competitive advantages from this, as it enables the development of products that are geared to customers’ needs and have a strong innovative character.”
