Join us for our 🎂 10th annual one-day conference!

Desirability, feasibility, and viability are the three components of a model for successful products — an integrated model that is often carried out by segregated teams.

Join us for our 10th conference where people from product management, ux, research and design will gather to discover what we have to learn from one another.

Learn new approaches and glean fresh insights that will bring solid benefits for you, your colleagues and your clients.

Some of the smartest, most insightful and entertaining people I've met. And that was just the audience. The speakers were great, too.

Leading culture change to increase customer centricity - Jonathan Smare

Digital disruptors and the covid crisis have highlighted the importance of customer centricity. Business leaders clearly recognise their organisations need to be more customer centric and future proof them against ever-changing customer expectations, volatile economic conditions and aggressive digital disruptors.
Business leaders want to understand how to lead culture change to be more customer centric, how to implement new ways of working and how technology can enable their strategy.
Jonathan will talk about leading culture change to increase customer centricity, innovation and agility:

  • Working backwards from customers
  • Implications for operating models to empower small cross-functional teams.
  • How companies like Amazon, Cisco and others reinforce and change their culture.

Jonathan’s objective is to help leaders understand their critical role increasing the focus on customer centricity.

Trade-offs - Lucy Spence

Product development requires trade-offs, but just like a deal with the devil, the devil is in the details of how you make those trade-offs. And your choices can be devilishly hard. This demonic themed talk looks at various techniques for easing the burden of the bargains you make.

About Lucy

Lucy has spent two decades making all sorts of mistakes while building customer experiences. She likes to share what she’s learnt from places like Amazon, TUI, LOVEFiLM, M&S, Department of Health, Compare the Market, and now Appvia, so others can make new and more interesting mistakes.

Speaking the same language - Kate Flood

It sometimes feels like design and product are talking a different language – both striving to get great products out to their customers, but frequently misunderstanding each other on the path to get there. Kate will share the times she’s seen this happen and the ways she’s tackled it so that you can get ahead and create brilliant working partnerships with your product counterparts.

About Kate

Kate is the Director of Product Design at Sky, working with the teams that look after NOW, Sky Go, Sky Sports and Sky News. Her career has taken her from New York to London, always trying to better the experiences for the people using the products and the people designing them.
