Innovation Through Understandingsm

 

The toughest part of innovation? Accurately predicting what customers want, need, and will pay for. Even if you ask them, they often can’t explain what they want. Now, there’s a breakthrough solution: Innovation Games. Drawing on his software product strategy and product management consulting experience, Luke Hohmann has created twelve games that help you uncover your customers’ true, hidden needs and desires.

 

You’ll learn what each game will accomplish, why it works, and how to play it with customers. Then, Hohmann shows how to integrate the results into your product development processes, helping you focus your efforts, reduce your costs, accelerate time to market, and deliver the right solutions, right from the start.

  • Learn how your customers define success
  • Discover what customers don’t like about your offerings
  • Uncover unspoken needs and breakthrough opportunities
  • Understand where your offerings fit into your customers’ operations
  • Clarify exactly how and when customers will use your product or service
  • Deliver the right new features, and make better strategy decisions
  • Increase empathy for the customers’ experience within your organization
  • Improve the effectiveness of the sales and service organizations
  • Identify your most effective marketing messages and sellable features

Innovation Games will be indispensable for anyone who wants to drive more successful, customer-focused product development: product and R&D managers, CTOs and development leaders, marketers, and senior business executives alike.

Reviewed in France on June 11, 2018
Ce livre est la référence en terme de Serious Game. Ne plus se baser sur les simples dire des clients mais en déduire son réel besoin. Développer une stratégie de développement du produit en axant valeur ajouté et temps de développement (voir Product box).

Dans un contexte Scrum (bien que non spécifique à cette environnement) c'est a mettre entre toute les mains des Product Owner. Il permet d'acquérir un éventail d'outils d'analyse du besoin. Mais il permet aussi de définir les clés d'un futur succès avec le jeu Remember the future, qui peut d’ailleurs être dérivé en réunion d'équipe (une rétrospective) permettant de se projeter sur l'équipe idéal et les actions à mettre en place pour y parvenir.
