We value things according to the quality of the experience we have when we use them... A great product doesn’t just do its job; it does something more.” - Harold Hambrose

A product is more than the product. It is a cohesive, integrated set of experiences.

“No product is an island. A product is more than the product. It is a cohesive, integrated set of experiences. Think through all of the stages of a product or service - from initial intentions through final reflections, from first usage to help, service, and maintenance. Make them all work together seamlessly. That’s systems thinking.” - Don Norman
