Goody Grooming Products
Goody understands that product development is a process of understanding the differences in your customers’ needs. These needs should be the foundation of product requirements. Goody partnered with User Insight to gather feedback on men’s grooming products via online panels, journaling activities and discussion boards. As a result, Goody improved their latest line of products to reflect various user needs that were depicted in the research instead of creating one size to fit all.
