The Kano Graph is an insightful way of understanding, categorizing, and prioritizing 5 types of Customer Requirements (or potential Features) for new products and services. We have simplified and unlocked the Kano Graph to make it a useful tool during kaizens to determine “Must Have”, “Should Have”, and “Could Have” qualities and features, and how customers respond to them. During the webinar, we will also uncover how new ideas and innovation can derive from the Kano Graph.
