Software Innovation Pitfalls

Relying On Regular Voice Of The Customer's Activities

The problem is that customers will never tell you directly what they really need, they can only tell you what they think they want. You need a different approach than relying on what they tell you.

relying on Iteration

Designing great software takes hard work.  It is not just a matter of implementing agile methodologies with lean UX and iterating with clients until the product is a success.  It takes more than that...you need to start with the right concept.

Relying on a beautiful Interface

While important, a  beautiful user interface does not guarantee a great user experience. A pretty nicely laid-out interface helps the user figure out how to locate himself with the screen he is looking at but cannot not guarantee it will help him/her achieve his/her goals.

Customer Insight from Research

Event though they both suffer from the same condition, Diabetic of Type 1 and Type 2 have diametrically opposed needs.  Since Diabetes of type 1 appears suddenly in individuals, they tend to panic and need to be explained how to manage their illness in a caring way and need to be told things will be ok.

Diabetes of type 2 appears gradually over several years.  Hence, those suffering from this condition tend to postpone taking care of their health since they won't suffer any immediate consequence if they do not.  They need realize the severity of their condition.
