Mind the Product

It starts by defining the core value of a product, in a way that everybody can understand, and then maps user journeys, at varying points of the user’s lifecycle. From the sales team asking for help to win deals, to users complaining about something that doesn’t fit their use case, we can feel like we’re always letting someone down.

What went wrong, says Cancel, is that the businesses involved – banks, credit card companies and retailers -weren’t listening to their customers. User experience issues.

How will Blockchain affect the research industry?

Userzoom

So based on my experience, here’s an investigation of what Blockchain is capable of, and how I think this will affect the research industry.
