Virtual Workshop: Continuous Discovery Habits (May 2020)

Develop the habits and critical thinking skills of a high-performing continuous discovery product team.
May 6 - June 10, 2020

More teams are moving toward a truly cross-functional product team model where the teams that develops the product (i.e. product manager, designers, software engineers) are the ones responsible for doing their own discovery. They do their own user research, conduct their own experiments, and synthesize what they are learning week-over-week to support their daily product decisions.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to develop the habits necessary to create a continuous feedback loop between your product development ideas and your customers. You’ll learn how to start with a research question on Monday and end with some answers on Friday, in a way that is sustainable every week of the year.

This workshop will mix real world case studies with hands-on exercises and discussion about your specific situations, to make sure that you go home with actionable takeaways. Come learn what the future of product discovery looks like.

We’ll cover:

  • Getting to Evidence-Based, Team Decisions
  • Starting with Outcomes
  • Discovering Opportunities
    • Adopting Continuous Interviewing
      • Automating the Recruiting Process
      • Asking the Right Questions
      • Listening for Insights & Opportunities
    • Synthesizing Across Interviews
      • Mapping Your Customers’ Experiences
      • Mapping Out the Opportunity Space
    • Prioritizing Opportunities
  • Discovering Solutions
    • Effective Ideation
    • Story Mapping Your Solutions
    • Surfacing Key Assumptions
    • Testing Assumptions
    • Prototyping to Simulate an Experience

The virtual workshop will be a series of six live sessions conducted via Zoom webinar software and will cover the same curriculum as the in-person workshop. Participants will work in groups via Zoom breakout rooms completing all the same activities they would have completed in-person. I’ve been coaching and teaching virtually for the past six years and plan to make this immersive, interactive, and fun.

The sessions will run from the first week of May through the middle of June on the following schedule:
  • Wednesday, May 6, 2020 4:00pm - 5:30pm Pacific / 7:00pm - 8:30pm Eastern
