The retail giant Amazon is famous for breaking down their development processes down to very small teams. But how do they do this without losing sight of their products and staying customer-centric at the same time? In this exclusive pre-conference workshop, Khushboo Jha, Product Lead for Amazon Alexa, shares an approach that allows product managers to think like startups CEOs. Naturally, this means starting from the customer and working backwards to ensure customer-centricity.
About the Workshop
Date&Location: 27. November 2019 – WeWork, Cologne
Trainer: Khushboo Jha
This workshop is part of our Pre-Conference Workshop Day for Digitale Leute Summit 2019.
Participants of this hands-on & interactive workshop learn how to work backwards from the customer in defining the problem or gap in experience for the customer. This is then followed by defining how to articulate the vision such that it is understood by everyone, including regular people on the street.
They will then work towards detailing requirements and building agile artefacts to frame and share your requirements with the broader team building it. This is then followed by executing on these requirements by planning and creating a product roadmap.
After the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Learn to work backwards from a real customer
- Define product vision in a manner that allows everyone to understand
- Build agile requirements for the product
- Execute and launch the product

Primary audience: Product Managers, Technical Program Managers, Startup CEOs
