Product Discovery Process by Tim Herbig (dark bg)

Why this Training?

Product teams love to build products. But all-too-often, we get caught up in the execution of a CEO’s pet project instead of questioning which ideas will matter to our users and business. And while most companies neglect the purpose of exploring and validating ideas before starting to code, successful ones know that they have to master a second track beyond product delivery: A repeatable, action-oriented, and continuous Product Discovery process.

In this training, I will help you to structure your own Product Discovery efforts in a way that you don’t waste resources building stuff nobody wants without sacrificing time to market.
Instead of just hearing about theoretical principles of product development, you will learn about my proven Product Discovery framework by working through a challenging and real-world case study yourself.

As no Product Discovery is like the other, The goal of this workshop is to help you learn about as many techniques as possible and to equip you with the skills and the confidence as you move through the various phases of a Product Discovery and connect them, independent of your situation, industry, company size, resources or goal.

This workshop will not just help you to facilitate more effective Product Discoveries in your current company or your current client. Instead, its modularity makes it also a worthwhile investment in your future career. Helping you to execute Product Discoveries in new environments with little to no ramp-up time.

  • Why Impact Mapping is the secret superpower of Product Discovery Teams for connecting the dots
  • How to improve your cadence for user feedback loops through rapid prototyping and iterative usability testing.
  • How to structure your validation efforts using Impact Mapping and the Validation Field
  • Why you need to run qualitative and quantitative experiments in parallel to validate your hypotheses and which tools you can use in your company right away.
  • How to integrate Design Sprints into your Product Discovery.

Tim Herbig Product Discovery Workshop Testimonial Grupa Pacuj

Product Discovery workshop facilitated 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).
