Why Product Fundamentals?
Society is changing fast. Technology is changing faster. And that makes customer behaviour hard to predict. How do we build teams that are resilient and adaptable enough to craft effective digital products in this often chaotic world?
This is much more than a leadership challenge; product teams are only at their best when everyone feels informed and empowered, equipped with the right tools, aligned around the right goals, and committed to collaboration.
What is Modern Product Engineering?
In the second of our Product Fundamentals series brought to you by Code Computerlove, Technical Director Dave Heath will give an introduction to Modern Product Engineering, explaining in simple terms how your approach to technology & software development can hinder or support effective digital product teams and the products they deliver.
Who's it for?
This session is not for advanced technical do-ers, but is intended for early-stage teams & stakeholders who are exploring what being a 'product team' means and want to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of product and technical concepts.
You’ll get the most out of it by involving all team members - shared understanding is key for any high-performing team.
What we'll cover
We’ll cover some common software development problems encountered and create an understanding of how to approach them differently to create adaptable products, all in non-technical, friendly terminology.
- Traditional Development Practices – Why does ‘Build–Bust-Rebuild’ happen? Why this is not good for product thinking
- Modern Engineering Practices – Why they are a fundamental part of product thinking
- Product Technical Health – A way to ensure the sustainability of your product is clear and understood by all
- Technical Strategy – Ensure your product & technology strategies are aligned and understood at all levels of the business
