Giving Your Product Away – Bombas Case Study

Periodically, The Training Doctor releases case studies used in our Teaching Thinking Curriculum.

Since we want everyone to improve their thinking skills – not just those who are enabled to do so through their employer-sponsored training – we offer these case studies for use in your personal development, corporate or higher ed classrooms.

In the Bombas case study you’ll be able to discuss and dissect concepts around:

  • Ethics
  • Product development
  • Corporate/Social impact

Super-niche Bombas makes one product and one product only – socks. And half the products they make they give away through partnerships with 600 organizations in all 50 US states. How do they stay in business? How is it sustainable? What is the company’s real mission?

Learn more here and develop your thinking skills by using the discussion questions posed at the end of the case study.
