3x3 grid reference for industry developments

Colley Hwang, DIGITIMES, Taipei

There are many factors that should be taken into consideration when doing market research. To better assess supply chain changes, let's first draw a 3x3 grid that offers a clear framework on all key information. Across the diagonal of the grid, we put the fundamental factors that will affect the ICT industry's integrity and influence. Then, we put supply-side factors on the upper left part of the grid and demand-side factors on the lower right. This will help us gain a grasp of key information when searching through a massive database.

My latest book, Disconnected ICT Supply Chains: New Power Plays Unfolding offers readers this 3x3 grid as a quick reference and framework to understanding the ecosystem, markets and crucial factors.
