Art Jones's curator insight, March 20, 2016 8:47 PM

So you want to grow your business?  Business growth requires more sales. To gain more sales begin by thinking about who you are in service to, think of the thoughful and insightful questions you should ask, then go to them, ask your questions and LISTEN to what they tell you. Listening assures that your offer translates into excatly the type of added value solution/product they told you would change their world for the better.

 

Human centered design assures every outcome begins with the end in mind, the end being a thorough understanding of how your customer is changed after they have your product or solution.
