Agile methodologies has been adopted in almost every organization and it is has proven great for delivering software faster. But the sharp agile focus on development is only one part of a successful product development equation. Companies need distinct capabilities to systematically identify, investigate, explore and test new opportunities and transform vague ideas into actual value.

Building great products and services fundamentally require different capabilities: development and discovery.

Agile has successfully managed to install a clear development focus in most product organizations; systematically shipping stable production code, typically measuring team velocity in terms of story-points and software shipped.  

Discovery work, however, requires an entirely different focus, success metrix and skill set: It's all about learning fast, testing ideas, and validating hypotheses.

The team, and the development organization at large need to balance the two in order to deliver products and services that actually matters.

In this 2-day workshop, you will complete your digital product development capabilities. You'll learn how to transform market insights, customer feedback, and stakeholder ideas into products with great user experience and high business impact. You will learn how to deal with new (risky) business opportunities as well as extending existing offerings.

The hands-on training is based upon a variety of tools and methodologies from Design Thinking, Lean UX, Lean Startup and Business Model Generation.
