How to Conduct B2B Customer Interviews
With expert practitioner John Mansour, Founder and Managing Partner, Proficientz
In B2B, there are three keys to successful customer interviews:
Talking to people at multiple levels in the customer organization.
Asking unconventional questions that have nothing to do with your products or services.
Socializing the information in a way that drives your portfolio strategy, product plans, positioning and sales enablement activities.
In this workshop, you’ll learn simple techniques for doing all three along with a customer interview guide to drive customer conversations with executives, senior managers, middle managers and people who do the work in the trenches (your users). You’ll also learn how product management & marketing can use this information to lead the organization’s strategic planning, product planning, positioning and sales enablement efforts by making target customer goals and business objectives the focal point.
