Winning With Customer Innovation:
Intuit's Foundation of Success

Guest Speakers:
Group Marketing Manager
Strategy & Business Dev.
Intuit spends more than 10,000 hours each year observing customers so they can create products that solve their most important problems. Intuit's CEO alone spends more than 60 hours each year observing customers. Why? Because that focused devotion to unearthing customer insights is what has led to Intuit's success and leadership. In many of Intuit's markets, its biggest competitor is non-consumption (people using paper and pencil instead). So investing time to watch what customers do, and not just focusing on what they say has been the key to uncovering insights and inspiring a change in customer behavior.

Join Parthiv Sangani and Firouzeh Murray from Intuit as they reveal the framework that Intuit uses to get deep customer insights from the customer and talk about examples (both from Intuit and other companies) where customer driven innovation has created entirely new markets.
