Full Stack Product Discovery Training:
Learn how to build what matters

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.

Dual-Track Agile Framework

Dual-Track Agile Framework

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.

What you will learn in this Training

  • Why it’s crucial to use the right alignment format to frame your Product Discovery for maximal autonomy.
  • How to execute lean research using quantitative and qualitative frameworks which truly help you to understand user needs and discover opportunities worth pursuing.
  • With which frameworks you can democratize the ideation process for new solutions, so your stakeholders feel involved without just unloading feature requests at your desk.
  • How to structure your validation efforts using Impact Mapping and the Experiment Grid
  • How to improve your cadence for user feedback loops through rapid prototyping and iterative usability testing.
  • 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.
  • Why Product Discovery doesn’t stop after the validation step and how to implement a culture of continuous Product Discovery.
  • How to transition validated ideas into Product Delivery by applying User Story Mapping and theme-based roadmaps.

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). 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.

Timothy Isle Product Discovery Workshop Tim Herbig Testimonial

​The Product Discovery workshop was packed full of interchangeable processes which will really come in useful when discovering our own product! I liked the mixture of theory and case study as it really helped to fully understand the concepts at each step. There was time for questions in between and, having worked for years in the industry, Tim seemed to have an answer for everything! Looking forward to putting these techniques into practice!

Tim Herbig Product Discovery Workshop Testimonial Grupa Pracuj

Product Discovery workshop provided by Tim gave me a new look at product discovery and development process. During intensive 2-day meeting me and my team-mates had an opportunity to deeply recognize and structure all stages of product discovery process, get to know various practical and easy-to-use techniques enhancing quality of ensuring that the right product gets built for the right audience. Instead of theory, huge part were practical exercises conducted in groups which gave us quick look on how to use different methods in real cases. I am very satisfied with what I experienced and highly recommend it to anyone working on product development.
