Abstract At the current state Grundfos LIFELINK is a donor-oriented business, which is not commercially viable. In order to achieve commercial viability Grundfos LIFELINK intend to partner with local sales- and service partners in Uganda to expand their business. A preliminary sales- and service partner identification- and screening setup has been developed, however Grundfos LIFELINK is in need of a tool to support their future sales- and service partners in order to constantly develop the partnership and obtain commercial viability.
In the process of developing an action plan proposal for Grundfos LIFELINK, a macro-environment scanning as well as a BOP-segment analysis were carried out in order to discover and examine the market situation in Uganda, and to identify the issues (i.e. needs) existing within the target segment: Disadvantaged people living in the Bottom of the Pyramid.
Following this identification and examination process it has been possible identifying the most value-creating part of the Grundfos LIFELINK water supply solution, being the water unit, and additionally to suggest three filtration improvements for the solution.
Eventually a developed KPI-tool proposal for support of sales- and service partners might be of value to Grundfos LIFELINK in their future attempt to achieve commercial viability.
