Fact: Women buy (products made by men)

Over 10,000 working hours and more than 1500 women worldwide were involved in a unique research study, which analyzed female tech-preferences and how to best embrace these insights within product development.
This masterclass will present the results of a 3-year design research program called "female interaction" co-financed by the Danish Governments program for user-driven innovation - a cross disciplinary project bringing together scientists, designers and innovation experts from 3 leading tech companies: Bang & Olufsen, GN Netcom and Danfoss.
In this Webinar, you'll learn:
  • Womenomics Trends Data: Female business insights and the innovation potential overseen in the (tech) industry
  • Made by Men, Bought by Women:  How does a  female's approach to technology differ from a male's?
  • Female Interaction Principles for Making the Female Tech Approach Operational:  Go beyond pink
  • 4 Female Tech User Profiles: Ways to avoid stereotypic gendered thinking and tools to enhance user focus
  • Case study Illustrating Potential for User-experience Innovation: How  to redesign a specific tech-product (a mobile headset from Jabra) based on insights from female values and a female approach to technology
