Presented by Nathan Shedroff, chair of California College of the Art's MBA in Design Strategy.

The business world has begun to talk about the need to address meaning in customers' lives, but few have bothered to define what this means and none have developed any models or methods for how this intersects with product or service developmentā€”until now.

Nathan Shedroff, one of the authors of Making Meaning: How Successful Businesses Deliver Meaningful Customer Experiences , will present a model for meaning and methods for researching customer emotion, values, and meaning, as well as describing how it affects both business strategy and new product design.
