Why Consumer Experience is Critical to Innovation

The first mistake organizations make is assuming that Digital Transformation, innovation, and disruption are the same thing. More importantly, organizations forget to include consumer experience when planning innovation. Because of this confusion, organizations are finding that their progress with Digital Transformation or DX initiatives has been too slow.

This means there are barriers within the business on understanding what the customer needs. Even though you already have solutions for your customers; more than likely, new innovation exists to meet additional unmet needs. These unmet needs, if addressed, could allow you to enter new markets or increase the margins of existing products. What happens then if technology is required to meet those needs and the most technically capable people in the organization do not work close with customers?
