  • Storyboarding in Product Development    ⟶

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    Why do so many teams fail to launch products on time? Why do budgets quickly creep beyond initial projections? Why do so many products launch and then, customers fail to adopt the product or feature? It’s because too often, teams jump right into designing and building before they establish their product story –– the deep understanding of how the product fits into people’s lives. Storyboarding is a critical activity to product development because it forces us to develop a deeper understanding of the people we are designing for. It forces us to establish the context, characters, and a clear language which creates an anchor that can ground the team and keep the focus on people.

    Validate Your Product Idea    ⟶

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    Most products fail because the team didn't build the wrong product in the first place. How does this happen? It’s because we race to the “build” phase and focus all our energy on the product. If you truly want to create an awesome product, you have to understand the people your product will serve. The best competitive advantage you can have is to understand your people, your audience, your potential customers better than everyone else. Your audience will guide you to the exact product you should create and how you should market it. And when you create a product based on research, you can even get people to pay for it before it's even built.
