Continuous Discovery and Design Collaboration in Product Teams: An IITPSA Eastern Cape Chapter Event

May 19 @ 17:00 - 18:00

Product discovery is the work that we do to make decisions about what to build. Teresa Torres defines continuous discovery as weekly touch points with customers, by the team building the product, where they conduct small research activities, in pursuit of a desired product outcome. To use continuous discovery effectively, we can no longer work in silos. There are three roles that are typically required to ship a successful product: a product manager, an engineering lead and a design lead. If we are truly a collaborative team, then all three roles participate in key product decisions. This talk will cover examples of continuous discovery in product teams and the necessary collaboration between product managers, engineers and designers.
