The product grid is an outline of four quadrants focusing on product, client, membership, and events. The product focused quadrant focuses on the physical and digital of a company's expertise. The client focused quadrant focuses on working on a small number of clients more deeply. The membership focused quadrant focuses on building a community. The event focused quadrant focuses on a concentrated event. Use the product grid to drive revenue, margins, velocity, and return on assets.
