Simon Simonek’s “Start with Why” TEDx Talk. (YouTube) Next week, we’re going back to a customer focus. We’ll do more work on defining what you’re taking to market. Simon’s TEDx Talk flips the script on the traditional approach of finding a market for a product. Instead, he focuses first on why a customer would be passionate about what you do, and then how to design your products and services with that passion in mind. It continues our focus on using design thinking to build a sustainable, profitable business.
