Zoom into the Value Capture Compass
The Airline Retail Maturity index Value Capture Compass is a 50-question survey for airlines that focuses on the strategic questions on how an airline is shifting its retail function. Instead of technology choices, this focuses on strategy, policy and organization questions airlines could address. At the end of the survey, IATA will provide respondents with a score-card of strategic maturity compared to peers and industry leaders, and offer some considerations in capturing value quickly. With support from McKinsey & Company, a strategic partner of IATA.
