Infotainment - Everybody loves Comics about Work, right? :-)
This book is infotainment. It is as much a guidebook for enabling user-centered design in B2B as it is a source for work-related memes.

Challenges of UX in B2B:

Most books on this topic either focus on consumer products (B2C) or ignore some unique organizational challenges of supplier companies that offer products and services to other companies (B2B). This book aims to do better by putting those challenges at the heart of its advice:
What makes UX in B2B different from B2C? What does it mean to be truly user-centric? And how do you get it right in B2B? In this book, you will get explanations and tips on these and many more questions around UX.

Tom has spent his entire professional life in the B2B sector and still finds the complex use cases of large companies working with other companies as exciting today as he did in his first year on the job.
