Why CPD

Big techs are surging ahead in customer experience. Is your digital operation supercharged?

When agile revolutionized the software industry years ago, it became mainstream in product development by helping teams deliver code  more quickly and with less waste through shorter cycles, enabling iterative and continuous delivery.

Yet development-driven approaches like agile demand guesswork. Too often, teams are stuck ranking product features in the backlog based on feasibility rather than desirability – are these products truly solving customer problems? How many product leaders have battled with stakeholders over what to prioritize because issues aren’t quantified or they can’t isolate root cause?

CPD instills confidence in your digital operation, and seeks broader participation. For CPD to be successful, the entire digital org – from product, design, UX, dev, ops, VoC, call center, business and executive teams – should be aligned. The more people who understand and practice CPD, the more successful you – and your organization – will become.

So why CPD? Because you need more than just speed. You need a customer-centric approach that lets you iterate with confidence. You have limited resources, so you need a framework that helps you assess the value of product opportunities so you stop wasting time on the wrong ones – and start prioritizing the right ones.

WHAT IS CPD?

A better and faster way to operate, with alignment and customer empathy at the heart.

 



To build great digital products, you need not just speed, but the ability to constantly learn and understand your customer — how they use your products and services and their needs — at an organizational level.

But it’s not easy – the organizational barriers to achieving cross-team alignment, speed and customer-obsession are numerous. How can you release code hundreds or thousands of times a day like Google and Netflix?

Continuous Product Design is a cross-team approach to building better digital products faster — based on a shared, quantified, and continuous view of customer signals.

CPD helps your organization detect those high fidelity signals most others are blind to – and go beyond black and white metrics to see shades of grey and color for the first time.
