“Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes … the ones who see things differently — they're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. … You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, ...

I believe that every human has his own crazy side that needs to be investigated! I am pretty sure that if you cleared your mind and brought a white sheet and started setting your needs, strengths, goals, and plans, you will find your path.

Craziness is about everything, but mainly how to elevate my thinking from the traditions and the rules other people around me has set! It's all about thinking in a different way that gets you out of the very tradition box that we live in.

Everything can be turned into something that can benefit humanity, but the question is how to do it in a smarter, new, and revolutionary way that no body thought about it!

Feedback is the only source for your motivated inspiration that comes from your results or sink.

Interviewing Customers, common mistakes and some useful links :) enjoy
The process they were using is as follows: • List the hypothesis • Find people / customers who will say yes to whatever you have • Frame the questions in a way that the answers are always what you are...

This is really an important milestone that needs to be accurately achieved at the beginning!

- The key thing is to hit customer satisfaction by looking at their needs not yours. Technical difficulties is not of concern to anybody except you, so do not think of it.

- Give your customer "constructive better" solutions/suggestions if you feel that would help their process. Otherwise, discard it.

- Show your customer some live demos and examples so they can have the look and feel.

Thanks for sharing Yousef. Yes, now I recall Business Model Canvas when I looked at the visual imagery. I wasn't able to recall it when you mentioned during our chat. I have done this and am familiar with it.

Hello people, there are a couple of things that I like to do but you don't know about :-D, one of them is graphic and game facilitation .... I'm a big fan of grove, xplane and other players in this field. It take someone more than 4 years to become a Grove certified facilitator :-S, Tomi Nagai-Rothe, Senior Consultant and Workshop Director @Grove will be in Ramallah in early June to talk to our local community… stay tuned awesome startup people, you will love it :-D, it is a new way of how you can look at and communicate things, it is a great way to brainstorm to generate / challenge ideas, and much more! 

See my blog post for more details, and please leave a comment there: ask questions, challenge ideas, or at least share it with your friends. 

Have a great day ^_^

For me that look reasonable! As I see it, the whole interviewing process is about bridging the gap between nontechnical, behavioral, and English words and the technical design and requirements.

The act of gathering requirements from interviewing customers is a job of experience where both sides are professionals at their interest. So getting the two minds to think a like is the challenge both try to achieve at different granualities!
