Design-led Leadership Fundamentals
Leading Product Development in a Customer-centric and Agile World
In the age of digital products and services, organisations must continuously evolve their offerings in order to maintain competitive advantage. Those leading product developments must be as comfortable developing new customer needs as they are working with software development teams to prioritise the backlog of work for the next sprint.
About the Course
In this intensive and interactive one-day course, participants will learn to apply design-led techniques to customer requirements development and become comfortable with the key concepts of agile. They will also learn how to identify whether product teams are flourishing or floundering and how to help them get back on track.
This course is designed for managers with non-engineering backgrounds involved in the development of technology-infused products and services. This course is also for software development leaders and technical project managers keen to learn more about the application of design thinking to improving customer engagement.
