Product design and development is evolving rapidly. Rapid prototyping, design thinking, and customer input are making product design more efficient, more effective, and ultimately more accurate. Customer experience is more inclusive of the brand, product, and support.
Story is increasingly becoming a more important component of brand. Brands that can clearly articulate their story and how their product/service can impact customer needs are drawing new customers into their story.
With a great product and a story that connects, process becomes more important. Customer onboarding, tracking metrics, infrastructure and systems are critical to ensuring a quality customer experience.

Measure, Measure, Measure. As much as you can, as long as it is important. Metrics + intuition drive decision making
Make the product as easy-to-use as possible.

Design a Great Product
Tell a Great Story
Great products need a great story. A story that is unique and connects with people. A story they can identify with and get behind. The best customers are evangelists of your product, the ones who feel that they are part of a great story.
