5 Economic growth story…. 5 1980 – 2000, Kenya’s 20 years of Economic stagnation – low growth rates + high pop growth From 2003 – 2011, growth rate reversed averaging 3.5 % CAGR, 2007 peak (at 7%) Could we see a china “hockey stick growth" in the next 10 years ( reaching 4x today’s GNI )? May be….why ? High growth rates + low birthrates due to low dependency High growth due to ; Oil, Iron Ore, Gas, new constitution (political stability), Coal May be not ….why ? Political instability + large balance of trade – diminishing exports if resources are not commercialized & no strong manufacturing base Your graduation my graduation

9 THE THEORY OF DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION “Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.” Peter Drucker 9

10 The theory Characteristics of Disruptors Lower gross margins Smaller target markets Simpler products and services May not appear as attractive as existing solutions when compared against traditional performance metrics 10 Source – Two types of disruptions 1.Low-end disruptions Target over-shot customers 2.New-Market disruption Compete against non- consumption

11 The theory cont… Case in point M-Pesa Encrypted SMS technology – Simplifies payments/transfer process CBK did not stiffle money transfer by insisting on ‘ traditional banking standards Value network – Non-bank Agency Network Low-cost processes & resources 11

13 APPLYING DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION FRAMEWORKS ON YOUR VENTURE "If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward" Thomas Edison 13

14 Framing the opportunity Define your customer value proposition – The Jobs to be done theory can help here Customers do not buy 1 inch drill they buy a one inch hole When customers buy a product they are hiring the product to get a job done for themselves. Targets based on Demographics are mere correlations. 14 Customer’s Circumstance Job to be doneCurrent solution(S) Limitations of current solution (S) Alternative solution to get the job done A car dealer with no money to communicate to a wide range of customers about cars in her yard Reach over 1000 customers everyday Newspaper classifieds Expensive to advertise Reach is capped Free to advertise Ad runs until you sell

15 Define your Business Model 3 types of business models; – Solution shops, Value chains & facilitated networks Value Network – To join or build a stand alone value network ? For example do you sell your product through existing channels or establish new channels – Example of Honda vs Harley-Davidson dealers, Honda distributed via power equipment stores – Intel & SAP joint venture, SME targeted ERP software distribution via previous channel partners, Accenture - FAILED – Imagine if Safaricom attempted to distribute its MPESA service through the natural channels of Bank branches when it started – How can you implement e-learning software in our schools based on this principle ? 15

16 Elements of your business model 16 SH KEY PARTNERS Telco ISP’s CUSTOMER VALUE PROPOSITION Free/ low-cost and convenient way to buy or sell COST STRUCTURE $ Platform devt/maintenance Customer Acquisition Costs REVENUE MODEL $ Premium Ad Fees CUSTOMER SEGEMENT Advertisers Customers CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS Online KEY ACTIVITIES Develop platform Market platform Manage Content Customer Care KEY RESOURCES Brand Online Platfrorm CHANNELS Telco Internet Mobile MARGINS Example of a freemium business model such as OLX Free ads & free access

17 Agile Strategy making & execution Embrace émergent strategy’ thinking – Example ; Honda experience in the US market Apply discovery-driven planning – Make projections – Determine assumptions that must prove true – Implement a plan to learn – to test assumptions – Invest to implement strategy Pivoting is important, as you experiment 17

18 Outsource or integrate ? – It depends 18 So It depends !! 1867 frozen meat rail in the US Dell Computers assembly plant When functionality & reliability are inadequate integrateWhen customization & convenience are inadequate integrate When the functionality & reliability of products overshoot customer needs then convenience,customization & low prices are what is not good enough For e-commerce e-cosystem in Kenya. What is not good enough ?

19 Financing, Recruiting & Organizing The concept of Schools of experience when recruiting – For example hiring a former CEO of a bricks & mortar retail might not help you in an e- commerce setting Org structure is critical – Even where you haven’t got employees define the roles as if you had employees in place Investors who are patient for growth but impatient for profits 19
