NEXT is a complete hands-on program for developing and validating your business idea based on a comprehensive curriculum rooted in Steve Blank's Customer Development methodology, built around in-person interactions with potential customers and delivered by our accredited NEXT instructor - Tim Clark.

What you will learn: how to generate assumptions to validate about your assumed customer's needs, motivations and their behaviors; how to find and reach out to people for interviews that match your assumed customer segments; how to define experiments that validate or invalidate assumptions you have about your business model; how to develop your own customer discovery interview plan; how to conduct effective customer discovery interviews; and how to turn customer feedback into real insight.
