Products and services that will delight your customers start with finding out what they need, regardless of their age. But to get actionable insights, you have to know how to ask. If stereotypes about older people shape your questions, you’ll get bad answers. If you ask the wrong questions or ask the wrong people, you’ll get bad answers.

Kay Newman has been in the design of technology for over 30 years.
