Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
In this two-day workshop participants learn about product discovery and validation. We start our discussion on methods for narrowing ‘product ideas’ into the ‘ideal product’. We end with techniques for you to inexpensively answer the question, “If you build it, will people buy it and use it?” or “Should you build it at all?”
“Most new products will fail – even if they are flawlessly executed! Its commonly reported over 80% of projects are unsuccessful either because they are over budget, late, missing functionality, or a combination. Moreover, 30% of software projects are so poorly executed that they are canceled before completion.”
Do you want to find out if a product idea is actually what a customer will purchase, use and love? Has the ‘build and launch’ approach to product development cost your organization too much in time, money and lost opportunity? Do you want to inexpensively and quickly validate a product?
This workshop makes extensive use of exercises that provide students these hands on experiences:
This workshop features an Active Learning component; here participants engage in presentations, discussions and activities for an in-workshop project and then apply that learning to their own product development.
This workshop is appropriate for everyone in an organization, including whole product teams: Developers, Testers, Analyst, Product Owners, Management, Technology Architects and representatives from the PMO.
