Customer Closeness

Join our three-day immersion course and learn how to use ethnographic research to support innovation and service design. You’ll interview and observe customers in the field and work closely with them to identify gaps and needs. Then you’ll deliver insights and explore how best you can translate these into actions.

Customer Closeness Research for Innovation in action

During the three days, you’ll try out interviews and observational research techniques on a real-world challenge. Watch our short film to get a feel for the course.
