By aligning advertising efforts with what customers truly value, companies can ensure their strategies hit the mark.


The Value of Dumb Questions and Constructive Criticism


One of the key takeaways from Jensen is the immense value of asking what might seem like “dumb questions” and welcoming criticism. This approach fosters innovation and helps fine-tune strategies based on actual market needs. It’s crucial to consult the market to avoid making decisions based on incorrect assumptions.
