In this video clip, Ade Adesanya, co-founder of Moving Analytics, discusses two tools he uses to think through new ideas and bring them to market. The first, Business Model Canvas, is a template that allows you to document different parts of your business to get a holistic view. The second involves using a customer discovery process by talking with your audience to validate whether an idea is good or not.
Business Model Canvas and my adapted customer discovery process are two powerful tools that ensure that you’re not building things that you think you like that customers may not want.”
