Many innovation methods adopt, at least implicitly, a product mindset. Product thinking is core to a focus on the customer (or client, end user, or other term of choice for those your organization serves), whether we describe our intended outcome as a product, service, or experience.
One of the central tenets of design thinking - often used to drive innovation - is a focus on the client or customer. For example, the IDEA method we use at the UWF Innovation Institute places the customer at the center of all aspects of the design process, from identification of the problem space through exploration of alternatives and the evaluation of potential solutions.
