Learn how to work in an Agile process for innovation where design thinking (research), Lean UX (hypothesis driven ideation and continuous validation) and Agile development (Scrum). With collaborative work in a cross functional team you will go from business problem to impact goal, to learning about the users, to exploring ideas and designing paper prototypes and validating your assumptions continuously. In the end of the two days you will have created a sliced user story map with your MVP strategy and you are ready to start delivering and validating your product in your Agile scrum team. This is modern product development.
In this training you and your team will get a defined process and a toolbox for innovation with short feedback loops and a clear connection to Scrum and Agile product development. If you do this continuously in your organisation you will have no more handovers, short time to market, very little waste, great possibilities to improve and adapt the process over time. It will be the easiest and cheapest way to innovate and test new strategies and products.
The training is also suitable for teams who want to become more T-shape and learn how to better collaborate and work together in a efficient and structured manner.

What earlier students say about this training

Focus is on how the design can support different customers key goals, behaviors and feelings dependent on where they are at the moment. A true a-ha experience but at the same time so obvious.
