  1. Guerrilla User Testing

    Having trouble getting started testing your ideas with users?
    Learn how you can take the first step getting your idea in front of users- without developers, without professional designers, and without dedicated user researchers.

    The goal will be to inspire YOU to do quick and dirty validation of their ideas, and if time allows to work through challenges that YOU have.

    • Running successful product betas

      Successful product development usually requires running a beta. This means answering such questions as:
      - Who should be included? Who makes best beta candidates for enterprise product?
      - What should be "beta'd" - UI/UX (Can people use it - do they love it)? Technical functional (does it work)? Business value (does it achieve what it is supposed to? Is it worth it)?
      - How much development should you do in advance vs during beta?
      - Who should manage it - marketing, pm or engineering?
      - Should you limit to those who will place order if successful?

      • Demystifying a Powerful Collaboration Technique

        What graphic facilitators do can seem like magic. They visually capture a conversation in a public way that helps all the participants understand what has been said and come to consensus faster. One technique that anybody can learn is how to use wireframe sketching to accomplish the same thing when the conversation is about software and requirements. No drawing ability is required.

        In this engaging workshop, you will learn and practice the individual skills necessary to use wireframe sketches to facilitate conversations, drive to consensus, and simplify your deliverables. I have used this technique for years to help teams focus…

        • Building a Winning Strategy Using The Kano Model

          The ultimate goal for user experience is that users enjoy using your product or service. Many companies use satisfaction as a metric for measuring their success. But satisfaction is really just the lack of frustration. You should be focused on what you can do to delight your users.

          In this session, Jared presents the Kano Model. The Kano Model helps you gauge your users’ expectations. When you approach delight from a perspective of pleasure, flow, and meaning, you can then determine which features meet these objectives.

          The audience asked a bunch of great questions during the live seminar. In this…

          • Improve Your Product Portfolio Through Analytics

            • Are you implementing the right business intelligence strategy?
            • Are your product ideas aligned with your business and innovation growth strategies?
            • Is your product portfolio balanced across product type, risk, time, resources and ROI?

            When delivering business intelligence solutions, getting meaningful data into the hands of the right people in ways they'll understand and use is extremely important. By bringing together this information you'll empower your customers to more accurately analyze business failures and successes, and your product team can make better decisions about how to improve your product.

            Managing data is a big challenge, especially for companies…

            • Steve Johnson's stories of product management

              Come hear my shaggy-dog stories about product management but watch out!—you might just learn something along the way. Learn about the product manager and the car that broke down. Learn why Star Trek is a better marketing metaphor than Star Wars. I’ll explore five principles for product managers and product marketing managers—all in story format.
