Infuse Agile Research and the Voice of the Consumer into Your Innovation Teams
  • Jim Longo - Co-Founder & VP of Research Solutions, Discuss.io

A great innovation process is all about prototyping, testing, iterating, and testing again. And for consumer product innovation, it is all about getting consumer feedback at every step of the process. But traditionally, consumer research has taken weeks, if not months, to conduct, requiring unnecessary process and formality which makes it difficult to integrate into a agile innovation approach. However, the key to success in innovation is speed. The best innovation teams embrace agile principles, ultimately resulting in better products and decreased time-to-market. With fast global recruiting and live video that allows for iterative questioning, Discuss.io makes consumer research agile in a world where it’s traditionally anything but. Discuss.io Co-Founder, Jim Longo, will share how brands are embracing agile methods to speed up the innovation process, while keeping the voice of the consumer front and center.

When Business Models Meets Real People
  • Wilma Lam - Insights & Experience Strategy Manager, Johnson & Johnson
  • Lona Vincent - Insights & Experience Strategy Sr. Manager, Johnson & Johnson

Business modeling is usually seen as rearranging the building blocks of a business for better financial return. What it should be answering instead is “why should your business exist from a customer
perspective?” A business model is not the strategy or the product, but what customers and partners adopt and the value they assign to that solution. In this session we look at how value is created and the different ways it can be evaluated. At J&J Design, we help the business simultaneously disrupt growth areas and stay relevant to our core business by examining the relationship between human-centered needs and business strategy to drive new value creation.
