Question: you are in the marketing department of the first company...
You are in the marketing department of the first company to see Howard Moskowitz’s analysis of spaghetti sauce preferences and you are intending to introduce a new variety to complement your standard sauce. Based on his discussion on pasta sauces, construct a positioning map that shows the position of your standard sauce, competitors’ sauces, and the position of your new variety. (Hint: Your X- and Y-axes will not be the same as the ones in the lesson. Rather, both axes will represent physical food attributes.) Put dots on the graph that represent what Howard Moskowitz’s data would look like on your graph (Hint: go to the 7th and 8th (actually 8th and 9th!) minutes).
