Workshop: Moving from Startups to Enterprise - What’s beyond User-Centered Agile Product Development?
Product Development for startups and enterprises alike has to move quicker and plan resources carefully for users to be able to gain market traction and stay relevant with competitors constantly evolving.
Minimum 10 pax to run. In the event that we do not have sufficient participant, we will cancel the tickets and be refunded.
Very often, product releases are managed by product managers gathering requirements on behalf of the customer within an organisation. He/she begins with a high-level product requirement and speaks with various stakeholders to map business constraints and heads over to engineering to start building.
This skips over valuable insights gained by engaging users, design teams and answering the hard questions of “nice to haves” vs “must haves”. At the pace that business demands today, it is also challenging to balance how we consider the longer-term consequences and the cumulative effects beyond the individual.
The topic would be of interest to designers, developers, team leads, product managers, business executives or startup founders who recognises change is a huge part of business and that products that are able to create the most value for end-users are those that will gain customer loyalty in the long term.
There are no prerequisites for this course but it could be helpful to have an understanding of agility or have worked in a product team.
