The AIM Institute studied 50 new product development teams from 20 B2B companies that had conducted B2B customer interviews. Five in six teams reported that these customer interviews impacted their product design. This means that if you don’t interview B2B customers to formulate new product objectives, your customer insight is probably lacking. Most new product development teams would develop substantially different products if they truly understood their B2B customer needs. In the report ‘Guessing at B2B Customer Needs’, the AIMS Institute discussed the method of interviewing customers.
