Hassle Mapping Your Way To a Better Product Experience

Product Lifecycle Management


Do your customers genuinely enjoy using your product? Do they want to tear their hair out each time they use it? More than likely, it’s a mix of both experiences. How do you get at this essential user information? At Journyx, we’ve developed a product improvement methodology based off Adrian Slywotsky’s hassle map concept.

In this session, participants will learn different ways to uncover user feedback and build hassle maps that pinpoint the emotional hot spots – irritations, frustrations, wasted time – of your product. These maps can offer compelling data to inform market-based product strategy and feature development.
