Starting Out Right – Tools and Techniques for Starting Product Development

This whole-day workshop explores what is needed to set up product development success. All too often we fall into what has been called “the build trap” – the desire to get working quickly means teams are off to the races without actually knowing which horse they’re riding on and where it headed.
This workshop presents a variety of tools and techniques which are available to rapidly align on business value, intended outcomes and coming up with a roadmap for successful product development.  Over the day the participants will gain hands-on experience using the tools on real-world scenarios.

Topics covered include

  • Understanding the product goals, how they align with organizational objectives and measurable outcomes
  • Crafting the product hypothesis and designing experiments to validate or invalidate it
  • Tradeoffs and success sliders;
  • Value and time, urgency and priority
  • Anthropology and personas
  • Roadmaps, story maps, and backlogs
  • Knowing when to stop

Workshop :
Succeeding with Data – Business Analysis for Data Science


“The best data scientists get out and talk to people,” – says Thomas Redman in HBR

The buzz about Data is at an all-time high, and the industry leaders are completely dialed into the potential and the promise of Data. However, surprisingly Gartner predicts, about 85% of Data based engagements fail. Some of the issues cited are lack of clarity in business goals, insufficient problem analysis, gaps in specific business knowledge, data diversity and lack of talent to translate and communicate findings. If it sounds all too familiar to you as some of the key business analysis skills, you wouldn’t be mistaken.

In this IIBA Thought Leadership workshop, we focus on a framework to inject digital business analysis into data science engagements with a clear experiential approach designed for business analysis professionals and business consultants.
