Overview

Watkins Bay's Go-To-Market Bootcamp is a five-day iterative program incorporating a functional team of between 7 and 10 members plus internal experts, customers, suppliers, distribution partners, and other stakeholders at relevant stages to dive deep into a specific opportunity and unlock specific value.

The Watkin's Bay Go-To-Market Bootcamp is best suited for a team with a defined product or service but has challenges realising the commercial benefits. The program is an iterative process, with each step and day building on the other, testing the current assumptions and feeding back to previous steps any learnings to further develop the Go-To-Market Plan.

The five-day program starts at 09:30 am daily with a morning and afternoon break of 20 minutes plus a lunch break of one hour. The day will finish at 5:00 pm each day. 

As part of the program, there are three additional check-ins with the team over the following 90 days to review actions from the plan, benchmark against metrics, codify any learnings, and adapt the plan for continued iterative execution.

Day 1 is integral to the program as it lays the foundations for future referencing, direction and team alignment. The laying of these foundations, based on research and building on previous product and product market fit testing, allows for precise goal setting and a greater understanding of the problem to be solved and the key issues to be considered and navigated, including critical stakeholders and competition. 

The Watkins Bay Corporate Innovation Team uses a defined set of tools and frameworks to provide the right mix of structure, flow, ideation and validation of each step to ensure a clear understanding of the landscape for future critical thinking and decision-making, including clear goals.
