Customer Journey Mapping 🗺️ is a simple exercise of charting the day-to-day of your end-user or purchasing decision maker personas 👷♀️💱
On a technical feasibility level, the journey map of an end-user helps to formulate the paradigm of how a proposed solution would have to function, in order to address some of the key issues faced on that journey.
Admittedly, creating a journey map for some purchasing decision makers may not be necessary.
For example, the life of a CFO or procurement manager and its limited interaction with your proposition may show itself as less relevant. With this, a Value Proposition Canvas should suffice.
But ultimately, Customer Journey Mapping helps to further empathise with your lead characters, and figure out the potential areas, or 'touch points', that your proposition would need to perform on.
In the parlance of Digital Transformation speak.
Your 'AS-IS' and 'TO-BE' states 📈
Similar to the Value Proposition Canvas, Customer Journey Maps should be updated when new relevant information surfaces.
Where would this information come from?
Again, from the conversations and tests that you carry out with your prospective customers.
These iterations continue to be the name of the game, until at least reaching Product-Market fit. Of which, your core end-user and purchasing decision-maker assumptions would have been right on the money.
How much time have you spent on testing and updating your end-user and purchasing decision-maker assumptions?
