Who should attend?
Blueprinting teams are multi-functional, so marketing, product management, technical, sales, and leadership typically attend. For this public workshop, three types of businesses benefit…
You’re interested in Blueprinting, but before hosting an in-house workshop, you want to “check it out.”
You’ve hosted past in-house Blueprinting workshops… and now have a few additional people you need to “catch up.”
You received training years ago, and want to learn what’s new & improved. (Hint… more than you can imagine!)
What will you learn?
You’ll receive all the software, e-learning and BlueTools® support aids that in-house workshop learners receive. At the end of the two days, you’ll be able to use your new listening, probing and interview skills to conduct qualitative Discovery interviews. Beyond this, you’ll develop a working knowledge of the remaining Blueprinting steps, with an emphasis on quantitative Preference interviews and their analysis.
What resources will you receive?
Your virtual workshop registration includes 1-month trial access to everything… which you can extend to 12 months for $995:
One-stop Blueprinting Center
Blueprinter® 5.0 software
31 e-learning modules
Over 20 BlueTools® support aids
BlueHelp® knowledge center
Blueprinting log (with ~200 slides)
With these resources you can begin conducting Discovery interviews right away. And the 31 in-depth e-learning modules and over 200 BlueHelp articles will provide deep insights after the workshop is over.
What practical skills will you gain?
You can’t master the entire Blueprinting process in 2 days. But you can do enough interview role-playing practice to conduct great Discovery interviews afterwards. Here’s what you’ll learn… at the same depth as in-house workshop learners:
Interviewing fundamentals (# of interviews, etc.)
How to interview down the value chain
Practice in Moderator, Note-taker & Observer roles
Note-taking with Blueprinter software & projector
Adjusting for global cultural differences
Using the PEAR method to improve listening skills
How to ensure interviews are customer-led
Transitioning between the 5 parts of Discovery
6 tools for getting customers to agree to interviews
How to address common objections to interviews
How to interview in unfamiliar markets
Practice in applying advanced probing skills
Role-play interview with What-and-Why probing
AMUSE method for B2B customer tours
How to conduct interviews in non-English languages
Identifying Outcomes, Solutions & Background
How to create Outcome Statements
Identifying Top Picks and Must-Haves
Using 3 Trigger maps in Blueprinter software
How to debrief after a Discovery interview
Using web-conferences to conduct remote interviews
Using BlueTools: Quick-Start Card, Tour Log, etc.

There are discounts provided for some workshops based on how early you sign up.
