Benefits for your organisation

Confidence in your product investments

With the whole product team equipped with the skills to plan, conduct and analyse customer interviews, the organisation can be more confident that they are working on products that customers need and will love.

Increased customer satisfaction

When customers love your products, they will continue buying your products for longer and refer your products to others – reducing churn and boosting overall sales.

Increased product profitability

Better understanding of your customers and their needs, through effective customer interviewing and insights analysis, ultimately leads to better, more profitable products for your organisation.

Customer Success Stories

Leadership is a journey, not a title. In order to lead people - to inspire, motivate, and align people for effective product development one has to, well, work with complex and diverse people. Brainmates' Accelerating Into Product Leadership (AIPL) focuses on exactly that. The AIPL course has been invaluable for me in growing my skills, and even as it was going I used the tools I learnt and felt the improvement. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who leads people in a capacity that contributes to building products - whether product, technology, or design.
