You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards to the technology

August 08, 2020 | Phil Fersht

"You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backward to the technology. You can’t start with the technology then try to figure out where to sell it." 

-- Steve Jobs 1997
