Build Better Products with Collaborative Teams
In modern organizations, you're tasked with building better products, faster. In this fast moving environment, the root cause of most missteps is the lack of a shared product vision. In this workshop, learn how to quickly align your team around the product vision and the customer’s needs and how to help your team iterate more quickly and effectively.
In this workshop, we’ll use hands-on activities to learn:
- How to improve collaboration among team members
- How to align teams around project goals
- How to align teams around product vision
- How to align teams around the right customer needs
- How to iterate to the right interface more quickly and effectively
Participants receive worksheets, checklists, and framing materials to use with teams and clients. These activities can be used as part of formal workshops or leveraged in ad hoc team meetings.
