Product Discovery is a crucial phase in the product development process that focuses on understanding customer needs, identifying problems, and defining potential solutions before building a product.
In this workshop, the hosts Nikkel and Jan will skip theoretical discovery approaches and basic design thinking knowledge. Instead, they lay out advanced product discovery techniques that have proven to work in practice and equip participants with the essential aspects.

- Lead and structure the innovation process
- Translate customer insights, business capabilities, and market potentials into a tangible product idea that delivers the right outcome
- Facilitate the transition from research to a testable prototype
- Uncover hidden risks early on and mitigate them to a minimum
- Apply a working process that avoids the common pitfalls
- Pitch and communicate new product ideas effectively and with high confidence
