Innovation Garage: Supercharge your Product EngineNew
Journey from “Are we doing things right” to “Are we doing the right thing?” This workshop is designed for those who are passionate about creating products that people love but are struggling to keep up with the needs of their clients while continuously trying to bring products and ideas to market. This new, global, cognitive era requires innovative thinking and proactive design of human-centric products and services that customize a customers’ experience – and provide scalable returns in an uncertain market. Join Julee Everett in this hands-on, interactive workshop to learn to apply practical techniques that pull from Design Thinking, Agile, and Lean Startup methods. We’ll practice some discovery techniques that help us explore customer experiences and uncover new insights about their needs. We’ll learn how and when to apply design thinking to Scrum and Kanban teams. We’ll explore validation techniques that help test your assumptions before you build. You will leave this workshop with a toolkit designed to help you fine-tune the entrepreneurial and innovation gears in yourself, your product, and your organization. Once your product engine is supercharged, you'll stop thinking ABOUT your customers and start thinking LIKE your customers.
