How do you develop products that people will actually use and buy? This practical guide shows you how to validate product and company ideas through customer development research — before you waste months and millions on a product or service that no one needs or wants.
With a combination of open-ended interviewing and fast and flexible research techniques, you’ll learn how your prospective customers behave, the problems they need to solve, and what frustrates and delights them. These insights may shake your assumptions, but they’ll help you reach the "ah-ha!" moments that inspire truly great products.
A rather boring book about the fact that you need to talk to your customer before, during and after product development. A small part of Marketing 101 dressed up in new clothes. Sigh, I get bored about this trash…
If you are a non-marketer, I suppose it may have some value, but then you miss a lot of other stuff.
You can skip this one if you haven't been hooked on the "new Lean" hysteria.
