"If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses,” Henry Ford is credited with saying. How do you get to the unidentified, unarticulated consumer insights that allow you to disrupt the markets ahead of any competitor?

Join us for this webcast to hear about five new principles that are challenging the traditional approach to market research. The principles are derived from Opportunity Thinking – a rich approach that will help you see new opportunities, new business models, and new paths to market. These principles are broadly applicable to any aspect of your business, from finding new opportunities to better marketing your current products.

  • Sampling unrepresentatively
  • Observing compensating behaviors
  • Learning to become comfortable with divergence
  • Getting visual rather than verbal
