Customer Discovery and Lean Start-up Innovation is an iterative process of interviewing potential customers and stakeholders to understand their problems and pain points in the market and in society. In global healthcare systems, the stakeholder relationships are complex, and the definition of a customer is often less clear than initially thought. This discussion overviews the principals of Innovation in this context and discusses how to use this Discovery Process, leading to real-world learnings and insights that validate or invalidate key components of the business model, often leading to pivots.
