Product discovery Workshop

How to use Adaptable Discovery Practices
to solve User Problems that drive Business Results

This workshop helps you learn the skills needed to adapt Product Discovery skills independent of your industry or company size.

Product Discovery is more than talking to users. But it's easy for teams to be held back by an overwhelm of frameworks and "do it right." When the thing matters are their iteration toward reducing uncertainty.

If you strip away all the frameworks, buzzwords, and "best practices," the core intention of Product Discovery is about the data-informed reduction of uncertainty regarding problems worth solving and solutions worth building through a series of nonlinear activities conducted as a cross-functional team.

That’s why this training focuses on helping you understand individual Discovery context and when to apply what technique to make progress, over just introducing new canvases or frameworks.

Learning Goals

  • Frame your Product Discovery through Strategy, OKRs, and Product Roadmaps to identify and prioritize the right Problem Space.
  • Structure Product Discovery participation and day-to-day integration
  • Articulate research intent to choose and combine the proper research techniques for your problem with a short lead time to insight.
  • How to plan, execute, and synthesize qualitative and quantitative research to generate reliable problem understanding
  • Using Impact Mapping to connect insights, solutions, and experiments to overarching business goals.
  • Develop a structure for testing generated ideas to enable evidence-informed decision-making.

Meet your Instructor, Tim Herbig

Tim Herbig Picture (2023)

As a Product Management Coach and Consultant, Tim Herbig enables product teams to make more evidence-informed decisions in line with their strategic choices by connecting the dots of Product Strategy, OKRs, and Product Discovery.

For over 10 years, he has worked in various in-house and consulting roles as a Product Manager and Head of Product. I constantly challenged myself to make an evidence-informed way of working in industries like publishing, professional networking, and building Enterprise-level b2b SaaS applications. I know what it takes to balance large-scale product iterations with the scrappiness of a pre-Product-Market-Fit state.

He now helps product teams develop and implement better practices that help them progress in their context instead of chasing artificially created "best practices." I achieve that through hands-on training, coaching offerings, in-depth courses, and intriguing content.
