  • Working with your Team of 3 or fewer students, you are now going to work on thinking through your product line more to be better prepared to complete your group's Business Model Canvas.
  • To get everyone in the group thinking along the same lines, we are going to focus particularly on the Value Proposition of the product line you are proposing. To do this, we need to do some Customer Experience design (aka CX).
