Live Online Class: Product Discovery for Agile Teams – January 2020
January 14, 2020 - February 4, 2020$1295
Our first 2 classes sold out quickly so we’re iterating and opening up TWO cohorts in January 2020.
Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden have teamed up to create this brand new, hands-on, highly-interactive live online course. Class size is strictly limited to ensure high levels of attention for each student.
This course was specifically designed for those of you who cannot travel to a workshop or commit a full day or two of your time away from the office or home to attend a training.
We have taken the learnings we’ve developed from years of in-person teaching, training and client work and have broken them out into this 4-week course on Product Discovery for Agile Teams. We designed the course to introduce you to the concepts of product discovery, Lean UX and how they work within an Agile process and to get you to practice these techniques with your distributed team.
This course was designed for user experience (UX) designers, product managers, product owners, project managers, agile coaches and engineering leads interested in building a more customer-centric, evidence-driven agile product development process.
What will I learn?
- What is product discovery and how does it help my team design and build better products
- What is Lean UX and how to use it to improve your team’s agility
- How to frame work as a business problem
- How to use the Lean UX canvas to declare assumptions about your team’s work
- How to set good outcomes (OKRs) for your work
- How to build believable proto-personas and what to do with them
- How to write good, testable hypotheses
- How to design your first MVP
- How to build an experimentation and learning plan
- How to synthesize the findings of your experiment and determine next steps
- How to blend Lean Startup, Agile and Design Thinking
- How to run a successful dual-track scrum process
- Tools and techniques to make agile, design thinking and Lean UX work with remote and distributed teams
What do I get besides the class?
Every student, in addition to participating in the course live online with Josh and Jeff, will also get:
- All the videos and 1slides presented throughout the course
- Access to all the templates, examples and guides used during the course
- A dedicated Slack channel for your class cohort to discuss course assignments during class and maintain beyond class. Josh and Jeff will join this channel.
- Email access to Jeff and Josh throughout the course
- Digital copies of Jeff’s book, Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking and Josh’s book, Outcomes over Output
- All the benefits of learning from the comfort of your own home without airport hassles, travel time away from family and work and a reduced cost 🙂
How will it work?

Time zones are hard! 🙂

- Each working group will have an assignment to complete between sessions
