The Designer Who Changed Airbnb's Entire Strategy
"Sinclair: When we realized the product was the trip, we started to see Airbnb as a lifestyle company that could believably extend into more aspects of the trip, like Airbnb Experiences. But the real genius is that storyboards became part of our culture and helped make Airbnb a resilient, creative organization. When we presented the Snow White storyboards to the team, we shared why we were creating this end-to-end experience and asked employees where they affected the story. Giving people problems instead of to-do lists empowered them to examine their work through a new lens. They were invited to be creative and come up with new ideas and possibilities that leadership could never have imagined. You can’t know the future in such a fast-moving organization or in a global market. And, when you’re truly disrupting, you don’t want to be limited by what you think your company can be right now. Snow White brought human-centered design to all levels of the organization, and it is still used and shared today.

Joffrion: Product-market fit is something companies really struggle to find and keep. How has your work helped Airbnb stay ahead of the game in a changing market?

Sinclair: Storyboards gave the team a framework for imagining an experience. And this has become a human-centered way to think about innovation. You can’t build products that people want without a strong point of view, so understanding that Airbnb's product was the trip gave the team the right constraints to focus on innovation that rolled up to our brand promise -- even as the markets shifts. We couldn’t have done this without first understanding how the customer saw our product: that the product was the trip. This allowed us to see what kinds of brand and product extensions were believable to customers and fit into our brand.

Joffrion: What advice do you have for companies who are struggling with using research to find (or keep) product-market fit?

Sinclair: When you’re innovating, you have to have a strong point of view. You need research, but you can’t research your way to innovation. You have to understand your customers’ experiences and ask yourself how they feel, but don’t ask your customer to tell you the solution. You are the designer. Your job is to be a deep, empathetic listener and to imagine ways to solve their problem. Take responsibility to create something better than the customer could have imagined. They are the inspiration, but you are the creator."

Airbnb benefits local economies. But mainly in white neighborhoods, study finds • Washington Post
Tracy Jan:
<p>Airbnb frequently touts its economic impact in “diverse” neighborhoods, saying guests spend money locally and boost businesses in areas where tourism is not already prevalent.

But <a href="">a new Purdue University study</a> found that white neighborhoods – not their black or Latino counterparts – are the ones most likely to benefit from an influx of Airbnb guests.

The study found that users of the home sharing platform generally eat in the neighborhood restaurants near where they are staying. However the spillover effect does not hold true when 50 percent or more of a neighborhood’s residents are black or Hispanic.

“Airbnb has made repeated claims that it helps the local economy in black neighborhoods, especially in New York City,” said Mohammad Rahman, a professor at Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management who specializes in the digital economy and big data. “We do not find any evidence of that economic spillover effect in restaurant employment.”

Rahman and his team focused their initial research on the impact of Airbnb on restaurant employment growth in New York City, the most visited, and the most active Airbnb city, in the United States.</p>

Insurance and the gig economy - Your policy is arriving in three minutes
Apr 5th 2018 |

In the longer term insurers face a more fundamental challenge: disintermediation. Airbnb, a platform for booking stays in private homes, has offered a “host guarantee” against theft and vandalism since 2011. Although it works like insurance, no specialist firm is involved. Airbnb makes payouts itself. Curtis Scott of Uber boasts that the firm is “perhaps the most educated purchaser of insurance ever”. It does a lot of the calculations for pricing and underwriting its insurance risk, and has a potential sales platform in the form of its app. For Uber and its peers, the next step could be to expand their gig offerings into insurance.

Airbnb in Spain: Barcelona cracks down on illegal subletting through Airbnb | In English | EL PAÍS
Albert Arias, an academic who has researched the Airbnb phenomenon, says that the only way to tackle the problem is to make it illegal to post apartments without a registration number issued by City Hall, which requires an inspection of the premises, as well as the owner’s permission. “There have always been apartments let out illegally, but the scale of something like Airbnb has made the problem much worse,” he says.
