Course Overview Hello. My name is Renga. I'm a product manager, and welcome to my course, Conducting Stakeholder Interviews and Surveys. Now all of us agree that knowing your customers well can help you build better apps and better products. But not all of us understand how to get to know our customers and do research activities. If that's your top concern, you are in the right place. I will take care of you and help you understand research in simple terms and also show you how to conduct research, but without any jargon involved. I will explain how we set up customer interviews and surveys and give you insider tips and tricks to do customer research like you have been doing it for years. Finally, I will also show how to make sense of all the data that you accumulate through this research and present it to your executives very confidently. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding why is research important, how can you plan for research activities, how many people should you send out your survey to, and how to convince your boss that conducting research is a great idea. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn stakeholder research at Pluralsight. Thank you. I'm looking forward to meet you.
