I work with cross-functional product teams (product manager, designers, engineers) virtually week over week for 4, 6 or 12 weeks, teaching them how to adopt continuous discovery practices. That includes how to adopt a regular cadence of customer interviews, rapid prototyping, and product experiments, all in service of driving product outcomes.
We focus on two areas of skill development:
- How to do small, actionable research activities well.
- The critical thinking required to connect those research activities to product decisions that lead to product outcomes.
Here’s what past participants have said about working with me as a coach:
- “We are starting to feel empowered to say these are where the opportunities are.” – Amy, Product Manager, Snagajob
- “Coaching has made a big impact on the work we’ve done and the results show it too!” – Dan, Product Manager, BeachBody
- “I appreciated that your whole process started with mapping and that specific opportunities were contextualized. I also really appreciated that the team aligns on a clearly articulated outcome.” – Arijit, Product Manager, Animoto
A 4 week engagement is good for learning a new skill like:
- Experiment Design
- Rapid Prototyping
A 6 week engagement is good for …
- Learning a more complex skill (e.g. using the opportunity solution tree)
- Focusing on one of the 4-week skills but with more iteration.
A 12 week engagement is good for teams that are new to continuous discovery and want to cover it all.
