Question: pitch the pitch was prepared by doing an online research...

Question details


The pitch was prepared by doing an online research browsing through various international travel sites, the search was predominantly related to kind of services offered by airlines, hotels and travel agents to support the international travelers which include both business and leisure travelers.

The negative is that the industry is changing constantly so we had to update our pitch at regular intervals. There are many new facilities for the international traveler and value-added services added every day. To keep updating the details was a challenge.

I have learned that the business especially the travel industry is extremely dynamic; they have to be on their toes all the time to meet the customer’s expectations. Secondly, I have learned that the business scenario is changing constantly and the business is facing the need to change continuously because of many new innovations and high level of communication. The customers are also expecting a lot from the service providers. So companies must innovative and match the customers’ expectations and to gain a competitive advantage.

Assumption Testing:

We tested the assumptions by cross verifying them on different websites and different related business.

The business model was changed to changing business needs and the real-time changes in the industry. The change was needed as the travel industry is dynamic and adapts quickly to the consumer requirements.

Comment on your Action Learning Set:

I received a lot of advice from the group which was as follows:

o    To keep updating the project details

o    To conduct online research to watch many new travel-related informative videos

o    To browse through travel websites and also explore the airlines, hotel sites to get an additional idea into the services they offer to match customers’ needs.

I advised the group from my own experience on conducting the research. I advised them to study their relevant field in dept and explore many travel sites and blogs to get more detailed information.

The entire communication and research have gone well. Our knowledge base increased and we understood that the business world is dynamic and ever-changing. In the future, we need to divide the activities in advance and have more group discussions to correlate our searches. Secondly, I think we still need to work with set objectives and goals to complete our research on time. The information is too much and we need to be focused to arrive at the exact details in the short while.
