In this episode we talk to growth strategist, trainer and expert on "Customer Discovery" Katelyn Bourgoin. Katelyn helps product teams figure out who their best customers are and what triggers them to buy.
"Companies that invest in ongoing customer research grow 2-3X faster. Yet, studies show that only 3 out of 10 teams do it regularly — crazy, right?Many teams know they should be talking to more customers. Yet they’re constantly challenged with who to talk to, what to ask them, how to analyze the feedback, and how to share what they learn with their teams. I help product teams overcome these common hurdles."
This conversation is full of great intel on how and more importantly why you should invest in customer research.

"The solution to our performance pain is magnanimity – integrating our capacity and caring by bringing our humanity to work. It begins with awareness of ourselves and how we’re impacting others (and not how they are impacting us or the bottom line).
