    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    Soft Skills are Hard Skills    ⟶

  • Validate Your Product Idea    ⟶

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    Most products fail because the team didn't build the wrong product in the first place. How does this happen? It’s because we race to the “build” phase and focus all our energy on the product. If you truly want to create an awesome product, you have to understand the people your product will serve. The best competitive advantage you can have is to understand your people, your audience, your potential customers better than everyone else. Your audience will guide you to the exact product you should create and how you should market it. And when you create a product based on research, you can even get people to pay for it before it's even built.

  • Teamwork Makes the Dream Work    ⟶

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    World-class product teams are greater than the sum of their parts—but how does that happen? Sometimes you’re lucky, and if you put a cross-functional team into a small room, they spit out magic. More often, though, product teams struggle to work together effectively, spending more time bumping into each other than actually building product. PMs, UX designers, and executives all try to drive definition, engineering isn’t brought in early enough, and QA sees a story for the first time when they test it.

    Demistifying Jobs to Be Done    ⟶

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    Jobs to Be Done sound great in theory, but are ripe with pitfalls when you actually go to apply them. It's really hard to craft jobs that are specific enough to be actionable, but high-level enough to describe the root of the problem you customer needs to solve. In this workshop, you'll learn techniques for modifying Clayton Christensen's popular JTBD framework so that they actually help you get closer to a real roadmap.

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $7,000

    What do OKRs, Roadmaps, and Resource Planning have in common? They're all necessary, but mostly hated, practices in modern product teams.

  • Teaching your team to learn    ⟶

    Size: 10-50   •   Length: 1 day   •   Price: $13,000

    Still basking in the glow of last month's Design Sprint? What has your team learned since? Are we not going to see you at church again until Easter? Did the process move the needle?

Discovery shouldn’t be a phase. In this workshop, you'll learn how to identify opportunities and deliver solutions that provide lasting value through continuous discovery and delivery.
