The Best Bang For Your Discovery Buck – Customer Advisory Boards

Product Management University

Customer Advisory Boards (CABs) are still the best bang for the buck when it comes to “customer discovery,” not to be confused with user or product discovery! More on that later. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of facilitating numerous customer advisory boards for my clients. There are two common denominators in every meeting. The discussions between your customers are invaluable because of the rich context you’d never get in one-on-one discovery meetings with those same customers.

Problem-Focused Roadmap is Product Management

Ronke PM

We’ve entered the age of the customer. Our customers are busy and don’t want to explain the features, functionalities, or enhancements they need. They want us to understand their obstacles and hindrances. Even when they convey their needs, we still need to translate them because what customers say and what they mean can be different. Our customers exist independently of our products.

Product Strategy Depends on Company Strategy

Mironov Consulting

Expanding on a recent post ( Revenue Goals are Not Company Strategies ), I’ve been seeing lots of maker teams (product, engineering, design) struggling to form product strategies without a company strategy to hang them on.  This is a recipe for failure: there are no generic product strategies or corporate strategies , and IMHO therefore no context-free prioritization models, metrics, or product goals.
