This Product Discovery Training Online Course will teach you how uncover and validate product ideas customers actually want to use.
Are you tired of executing pre-determined solutions or just facilitating an exchange of opinions?
Your stakeholders can't wait for your current sprint to finish. Because you and your team can then rush onto executing the next roadmap item. You never feel like truly owning your work and feel lost when it comes to deciding what to work on next and, most importantly, if it is the right thing at all.
Structuring and executing a Product Discovery can feel like a lonely task and uncovering customer behaviors worth changing and connecting them to what the business needs seems impossible.
It simply feels unfair because other product teams and companies seem to be able to build products around user needs.
When I had become a "Certified Scrum Product Owner", I thought I knew everything it takes to build great products.
If I would only focus enough on delivering the features my stakeholders asked for in-time, I would grow as a Product Manager and improve my reputation in the company. Except, I didn't. Instead, I was asked to deliver on time again and again and stakeholders impatiently asked for "results" during rare occasions of user research.
And when I tried to apply Product Discovery processes and act on two Agile tracks simultaneously, I got lost in endless research iterations and couldn't outline a clear connection to business impacts.
With this course under your belt, you can finally feel confident about uncovering user needs and shaping a product users want to use. You will experience a new level of clarity when it comes to collecting evidence and turning it into ideas worth pursuing.
This course isn't just a summary of theoretical principles or a static process which is detached from your daily reality as a Product Manager. Instead, I'm teaching you a modular system based on hands-on experience which can be applied in every industry and at every company size, helping you to become the most effective Product Manager you can be.
After enrolling in the course, you get immediate access to the full course content. This way, you can pick the modules which fit the best to your current situation and can learn at your own pace. The course content will constantly get expanded and updated while you have life-long access to the material.
While we work through a series of modules which build on top of each other, the course material enables you to implement every technique individually and in the order which works best for you.
The course material is derived from what works for the real challenges Product Teams have to deal with every day. Whether it's about connecting the dots from user insights, prioritizing discovery opportunities or aligning stakeholders.
The principles of the course are taught in a way which combines consise theoretical input with real-world examples and hands-on insights from case studies and client work I've experienced first hand during my career.
The course content and case study material is designed in a way that you can form learning groups with peers or colleagues. In addition, you become part of an active student community which supports each other.
Here's how we will build your own Product Discovery Toolbox throughout the course
Learn about the principles behind this course, how to use the material for a maximum of effectiveness.
Before we jump into any specific techniques, I want to help you understand the general important of Product Discovery and the Dual-Track Agile principles. We will also look at how to discover and prioritize Product Discovery opportunities and how to integrate Product Discovery activities into your day-to-day business.
Alignment around your Product Discovery Opportunity with your stakeholders, boss and team is crucial for getting the autonomy to facilitate the Discovery on your own terms. Learn about the potential drag of 'Alignment Debt', practical alignment tools and how to utilize them most effectively.
Discussing ideas doesn't make sense if you're not aware of the needs and behaviors of your users and customers. We will discuss how to implement a holistic perspective on research efforts, building your research technique toolbox and take a closer look at the specifics of surveys and interviews.
Staying on course and focusses is one of the biggest challenges when running a Product Discovery. Through an in-depth look at the Impact Mapping framework, a practical perspective on how to integrate it into your Product Discovery and a real world example, you will be able to bring more clarity to your routines.
After identifying rich research insights, it's time to facilitate ideation sessions in diverse teams which encourage team members and stakeholders alike to think outside the typical evolution of your product. Next to facilitation techniques for ideation workshops, we will also take a closer look at specific techniques and how to use them.
Turning ideas into prototyped experiences you can test with users requires the right set of tools for your situation. In this module, we will look at a broad range of tools which come in handy for creating prototypes with and without an UI.
Instead of rushing into the execution of your bosses favorite feature ideas, staying disciplined when it comes to validating your solutions is crucial. In this module, I will introduce a broad range of validation techniques and demonstrate how to execute them. In addition, we will discuss how to set up and structure your validation efforts and the importance of experiment pairing.
The greatest Product Discovery insights are worthless if you're not able to transition validated solutions into your backlog and execute and deliver them with a fast time-to-market. This module will help you to understand how to incorporate MVP thinking into this phase and how to utilize User Story Mapping.
Learn about the pitfalls of Continuous Product Discovery, how to avoid them, how to convince your boss on getting started with your first Product Discovery and how to get your organization/team on board for running a Product Discovery.
There's more to this course than "just" the video material. Take a look at the additional content and material you get as an student of the Product Discovery Online Masterclass
You get access to all the templates and cheat sheets which I personally use to run a Product Discovery. These are either based on my own experiences or curated from other best-in-class practitioners.
As an enrolled student of this course, you get access to our recurring Q&A Calls where I personally address questions and case study results from the community.
If you're looking for sparring outside of the Q&A calls, our closed LinkedIn community is the place to go. In there, you can submit your case study output for peer review and exchange questions with students.

Head of Product at SABIO
Tim tailored the Product Discovery Workshop perfectly to our topic, structured it very well and carried it out flexibly at the same time. The approach and methods chosen enabled us to focus on the underlying challenges of our users and to jointly formulate a vision and initial steps for our new product.

Research Expert at Grupa Pracuj
Product Discovery training by Tim was full of knowledge and practice. Tim's scenario assumed intensive work and it was fully executed. At the same time Tim was open to questions and talks about internal cases/problems. I highly recommend Product Discovery workshop for whole product teams (including researchers, developers and scrum masters). It helps to see whole picture of creating the product in company and place discovery phase in it. Tim showed us how to work on the discovery process in small steps.
Senior Product Manager

I don’t have ‘formal’ exercises that you need to complete and submit. I'm a big believer in not breaking up your learning flow, and I know these exercises often provide barriers where you need to submit something and wait for a response before you progress – this isn’t what this course is about. You’ll be able to move through at your own pace and learn in a style that’s comfortable to you – I'll also make sure you have everything you need so that you don’t need to complete arbitrary exercises just to say you’ve done them.
Yes! My goal is to provide you with all the knowledge, information and the toolkit you need to confidently facilitate a successful Product Discovery. Everything included in this course are what I wish I had known before I started running Product Discoveries, and also stuff I've built up over time and loads of real-life experience doing Discoveries with a range of different companies. Something you feel like you’re missing at the end? Just tell me and we’ll make it happen!
A lot of companies have training budgets, where they actually have money kept aside for their employees to take courses like this to aid their professional development. If this is the case for you, then great! If your company doesn’t explicitly say they offer it, it’s sometimes worth having a discussion with them to see if it’s a possibility. From my experience what normally happens here is that you’d have discussion with your HR department or manager, telling them about how the skills from this course match your personal development plan or contribute to a specific project which is ahead of you. You might also want to show them the course curriculum so they get an idea of how tangible and hands-on the material is.
In theory you probably could, and I believe in enabling as many Product Teams as possible to own and develop their individual Product Discovery processes. However to get all the information in a structured way, and all the toolkit and materials for free, would be really hard and would take hours of piecing bits of information together. Also, most of the information that’s readily available is on the internet speaks to a total beginner audience, whereas the material in our course, while suitable for beginners, will give you a deep-dive into the Sprint and all the process and materials around it. Most of the material out there (including other online courses) only look at specific elements of the Product Discovery process (e.g. User Research). To my knowledge, this is the only course helping you to set up a modular and holistic Product Discovery system, you can adapt to our own needs.
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
You'll get access to these calls for as long as we're selling this course.
