How can anthropology help my business grow?

Customers, employees, and partners cannot objectively tell you why they behave in certain ways, or even how you can solve their problems. But when you view your business with the eyes of an outsider, you can discover what their behaviors mean and find solutions otherwise overlooked. Corporate anthropology is the practice of observing both the customer and the processes of a business critically in order to recognize unmet needs, tap into new markets, and achieve “aha!” moments that can lead to meaningful innovation and growth. In On The Brink, Andi Simon shares seven amazing stories of companies who have achieved meaningful breakthroughs and growth, and actionable techniques to apply corporate anthropology to your business.

As I describe in my recent article published in Home Business Magazine, it all began with an Uber employee, Susan Fowler, going public about her harassment and sexual […]
