Los Angeles, Monday, December 2, 2019

We are in the homestretch of 2019. Are you feeling those holiday vibes yet? 

We're planning a lot of great HCD (human-centered design) content for you in 2020. We've got everything from deep dives into the various tools you can use in your business TODAY, to ways technology can support your HCD efforts. 

In the meantime, we've been noticing a lot of new customer experience data coming out...and most of it is pointing to lackluster results. Companies are still failing to meet customer expectations, and executives remain dissatisfied with innovation efforts. 

One possible reason is that "innovation" is sometimes translated as the need for new technology. But, technology won't help you one bit if your business model is broken or your processes are not human-centered.

Realize the importance of people, and innovation will follow. 

Read on to dive into the details. And, as always, come to us with any questions, theories, or thoughts you have.

We're here for you. 

Happy Holidays to you and yours! 

See you in 2020.
