"If you are not embarrassed about your prototype, you are showing it too late." This quote best describes the ProGlove Design Team's hands-on approach to defining both hardware and software products. Join this talk to gain insight into how we make the fuzzy front end of product development tangible by utilizing low fidelity prototypes and getting customers involved as early as possible. Learn how this "show, don't tell" approach helps us gather early user feedback while also framing technical requirements for new products.

AI products are all around us, they are here to stay and we will likely see more and more of them. And like most tools or products, they can be used for good, or cause harm. How might we practically go about considering ethics in the context of building a product with AI (or any product for that matter). We'll look at a typical product lifecycle and share resources for product teams to make thinking about ethical considerations easy and part of your regular workflow of building products. Please join me if you care about building safe, trustworthy products that have the best interest of humans at heart. There is a ton of potential in building great new products based on AI. Let's build the good stuff, and learn how we might safeguard against unwanted or unintended impact.
Developing robust, scalable, and maintainable software is hard. A lot of the complexity though does not reside in writing the code, but ensuring that all the interested stakeholders are rowing in the same direction. People tend to forget that ensuring a group, as well as the organization, walks along the same planned journey is the single greatest challenge in a software-based company. Why is that? What makes it so hard for people to understand what needs to be built? And ensure that it gets built as they imagine. In this talk we will explore different reasons teams are misaligned, we will uncover some of the friction points that might afflict you and your colleagues and we will try to establish some basic practices we can integrate into our workflow to minimize the amount of misalignment happening within your organization.
Understanding concept of product marketing, why it matters, how it works, and what you can do about it (if you don't have it).
The aim of the talk will be to highlight several most important activities, items and points in which Product Manager is needed to contribute and support the delivery process, from the Engineering / Project / Delivery Manager perspective. The focus here should be on WHY. Why the product manager needs to know the product well? Why the product manager should understand the correlation between business and technical aspects? Why the product manager should be good in managing stakeholders expectations? Why the product manager should be measuring costs vs benefits for features? What could happen if client is driving the delivery process? What happens when one of these above is missing? All these questions will be covered with an appropriate examples.
Product Requirement Document (PRD) is one of the artifacts in product management causing heated debates – is it old-fashioned, waterfall document, or is it a good tool in a product manager’s toolkit? The best answer may not be one or the other, but rather that it depends on how and when it’s used. In this talk, we will cover the tips and pitfalls of using a PRD, backed by theory and industry best practices, as well as first-hand experiences from different work settings, ranging from freelance projects to in-house initiatives.
Based on substantial experience with leading different client teams through product discoveries, we will share our best practices, frameworks and tools to use to successfully guide product discovery teams to a desired result. Topics that we will cover include: treating product discoveries as mini projects with clear discovery goals, agile chartering as a tool to help you as an outsider (consultant) to quickly grasp the product vision, team/environment context and drive quick alignment within the team on the ways of working. Last we will share a summary of key tips to think about when approaching product discovery projects.
We will look into the implementation of matrix organization on a concrete example, and draw similarities with the so-called “Spotify model”. Focusing on the impact of this company organization model on organization of the product department, without going into issues other departments might face. Finally, we will take a look at benefits that this organizational model gave to the company, as well as major challenges that the organization had. The value for the attendees will be understanding if and how matrix organization could help them scale organization of product teams.
Are you using the right kind of Roadmap for your Product? How can you improve the current one you have? Is there a way to get all answers for everyone in one place?
