Whitepapers: Product Journey Mapping

The Product Journey’s purpose is to understand the customer organization’s interaction with the PRODUCT including their behaviors, thoughts, frustrations and delights throughout the customer’s entire life cycle with your product – setting the stage for product innovations that can change the game.
