In today’s world, businesses face 2 key challenges:
- Dealing with change
- Staying aligned with customers
Dealing With Change
In this world of volatility, we have 2 choices:
- Fight change
- Embrace change
Fighting change means that you don’t keep up with your customers, your employees get frustrated, and your partners move on to more innovative companies.
Staying Aligned With Customers
The second key business challenge is ensuring that product innovation addresses real customer needs on an ongoing basis – continuous product-market fit.
Customers’ needs are also constantly changing. If asked, customers tell you what they want (“stated needs”). But sometimes customers will need something in the future that they are not focused on now (“latent needs”). And these customer needs can change very quickly.
Staying aligned with your customers in a highly volatile environment means the difference between success and failure.
There is a bright side. Embracing volatility will lead to moving fast, staying ahead of your customers and having a productive workforce. And by ensuring that customer obsession is part of your entire company’s focus will keep your product roadmap creating maximum value for customers.
