The missing piece to your product management puzzle...
...visualizing the user experience
Product teams need to fill gaps of information and get to a shared understanding about their user.
Agile Engineering is Useless...
...if you're programming without having user tested your ideas
Are you too busy? Do you lack the team skills or the company culture to do user testing?
I'm not going to user test...
...my product needs to be in market now
Delivering software on time can be a false milestone...unless of course, you produce the right software the first time without ever having tested it with users...unlikely.
Real users don't know jack...
...how can I trust a handful of users.
Get outside the office. More meetings with the same colleagues won't solve your innovation problem.
Start using Product Discovery...it's the Agile methodology for ideas.
Testing an app prototype onsite
Reading about modern product techniques is not enough to get good at them.
Learning and implementing concrete techniques from a proven Product Leader will bring teams up to speed faster and make companies more nimble more quickly.
