AIC 2023 Presentation
Radical Product Thinking for Change Leadership
What do people, problems, and strategies have in common? Product Thinking.
Creating world-class products and services is a discipline that some organizations seem to master, and others struggle to achieve. We read about the visionaries like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs and may think it is a magical gift bestowed on the few.
In the last decade, we’ve learned to over-rely on iteration. In a growing economy where credit was plentiful, the tech industry has repeatedly chanted the innovation mantra “Fail fast, learn fast.” Methodologies such as Lean Startup and Agile have taught us to innovate faster by harnessing the power of iteration. We’ve learned to build products and scale our companies by testing things in the market, seeing what works, and iterating. But inherently, “seeing what works” is optimizing for short-term results.
An iteration-led approach can move financial metrics up and to the right, but it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll build game-changing products.
What if we took this same mindset and approach with our Agility adoptions that combine strategy, design experience, and change management?
What if every Agile CoE, Transformation Office and etc. applied radical product thinking practices to help solve wicked problems that help grow businesses through a product thinking lens with a vision-led approach?
In this session, you will learn:
-The basic understanding of product thinking in relation to the three wicked problems- strategy, experience design, and change management
-How to use Radical Product Thinking to be smarter on how you innovate change
-Practical application examples to get you started
