Early in the Human Centered Design process, the focus is on needs finding and identifying the jobs-to-be-done via ‘discovery’ research methods like ethnographic interviews. Later, those needs are translated into low-fidelity, testable concepts that can be refined through test and learn ‘evaluative’ research methods.
While many companies are becoming proficient at spotting unmet needs and opportunities, the initial market testing is frequently where they stumble, because they require new capabilities and mindsets to conduct affordable in-market experiments. Figuring out the right methods, learning agenda, and test criteria can be quite tricky, yet critical to the success of the solution.
Join us for our first SDN DC lunch + learn series with our guest Peer Insight. In this session, they'll share what they've learned about in-market experimentation, including when and how to do it, best practices, and case examples.
