Our Pre-Conference Workshops
This workshop will go beyond traditional agile practices and cover techniques for generating ideas, prioritizing opportunities, validating product-market fit, developing product strategy, and identifying product metrics to measure success.
User experience, service design and design thinking communities have given us a lot of help to solve problems with the user and the business in mind. But how can we combine the right methods and bring them together in a format that fits the busy business schedule of product development teams?
Learn how to turn a fuzzy vision into a successful product. Product Discovery is an innovation technique that helps organisations to continuously improve existing products in new meaningful ways or to create completely new products that provide significant new customer value.
The Product Owner workshop shares an approach that allows product managers to think like startups CEOs and own end-to-end of their product. This, of course, means starting from the customer and working backwards.
In this workshop you will learn how to incorporate Enterprise Design Thinking methods into your everyday project flow and apply a range of practical tools and principles that will make your team's work easier.
Cross-Team Empathy: How we develop a common understanding of our product with Domain-driven Design, Event Storming and Domain Storytelling.
Building products by using agile principles is an effective way to grow a business. Learn what effective OKRs are made of and how to use them for setting your team up for working on outcomes instead of features.
