About the Program
Companies at early stage product/service development or attempting to gather market feedback engage in qualitative market research. In this module we will explore cutting edge methodologies of early stage qualitative market research aimed at capturing the voice of the customers and their perspective. We will use the customer journey map as a focusing function for the data gathering activities and as a lens through which to assess the appropriateness of different research methodologies.
