This two-day Boot Camp-style workshop provides product managers, analysts, designers and entrepreneurs with a deep immersion into lean and agile innovation and product management principles, processes and tools.  
 
Participants will experience an essential toolkit blending aspects of several leading methods, including Scrum, the Lean Startup, and Lean UX, learning essential concepts and putting them into practice.  This course utilizes leading tools like the lean canvas, validation board, story mapping and more to equip product managers with real-world techniques that they can put into practice immediately. 
 
Revolving around a core case study, which can be based either on hypothetical or real-world project ideas, participants get to try techniques directly.  These exercises are buffered by brief training modules and direct assistance by class facilitators, for a vigorous, well-balanced and carefully paced experience. Exercises, movies, demonstrations, facilitated discussions, case studies, tool and template examples and more are interwoven throughout to illustrate the principles being taught in a comprehensive fashion interactively tailored to the class’s needs, based on real world experience, not ivory-tower theory.
 
Who Should Attend
Product and line managers, project managers, business analysts, designers, entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in learning more about Lean and Agile approaches to innovation.
