How do we make market research scalable, affordable, and quicker?
According to a recent GRIT Report, Market Research Online Communities have gone mainstream. Currently used by a majority of researchers, traditional MROCs are often reduced to passive listening stations. They are a quick resource to get customer reaction, but how do we leverage our understanding of customers to inspire new solutions?
Co-creation Communities are the latest evolution of online communities. Co-creation empowers customers to take a more proactive approach. Customers work side by side with your team to help generate ideas, develop those ideas into concepts and then evaluate the top concepts. This allows you to innovate more quickly and with greater confidence.
In this webinar recording, you will learn how Delta Air Lines put passengers at the center of their product development efforts.
You will learn how to:
- Interact with customers in an iterative environment
- Get great ideas created by your customers and internal team
- Allow your customers to help drive the process, enabling you to make better decisions
