October Meetup: Interview Hacking by Travis McCutcheon

For those who might have missed it last month at the Lean UX meetup Travis McCutcheon gave an essential guide on how to start running interviews, & more importantly, using them for effective validated learning.

Getting out of the building & talking with customers is HUGE but usually the first attempts sputter out. From coordinating interviews to asking the questions that matter, Travis is going to break down the key elements, right tools to use, & share tips & tricks straight from the trenches.

Travis McCutcheon is the founder of Leap for Mankind which helps startups & products get their ventures into orbit.

    Travis! Excellent presentation. I found your hypothesis formula to be most helpful (if X, then y). I'm in the middle of customer development interviews and this is going to be very helpful with A/B testing. Also, here's some resources for finding someone's email address that's on LinkedIn. He/she doesn't need to be a connection either. It's a Google Spreadsheet that spits out all the possible email address of the person and all you have to do it copy/paste into Rapportive. Here's the instructional blog post along with a link to access the Google Spreadsheet:

    Rapportive (http://rapportive.com/) was the tool I asked Travis about.. All the names I get from linkedin, meetups, press releases I plus into rapportive to see what I can hack up.. It's been effective for me. If you have any questions please feel free to email me: blake [at] aceable [dot] com. Cheers! Oh and awesome job earth2travis. Don't stop the jokes.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
