“Intimate Customer Understanding” by Steve Blank (check video in this link)

“(…) There’s nothing about a business that isn’t rocket science to understand well enough within a certain period of time. I’m not asking you to become a heart surgeon, but it’s not that hard to understand the tools a heart surgeon might need. But you won’t do it from inside your building. That is, the job of a great entrepreneur is to become a domain expert, enough to understand the day in the life of their customer, their buyer and anybody else in their organizational chain. If you can’t do that, you are just tying one hand behind your own back. And if that sounds like too much of a burden, don’t do it and be like every other entrepreneur that goes out of business. Understanding why your customers buy, what’s important to them isn’t passed. “Gee, I developed a neat idea in my dorm or company. (…)”
