My Top Trainings
The Art & Science of Prioritisation
Product managers get plenty of feature requests from customers, partners and internal stakeholders.
While some can shape your roadmap, others are detrimental to your company’s strategic interests. Product managers struggle to prioritize these.
This popular hour-long training which I delivered at Institute of Product Leadership, Bangalore and at multiple other venues is an experiential learning session complete with a B2B case study and provides a framework for prioritization.
This training really resonated with the audience which consisted of product leaders, engineering managers, architects, and UX designers from companies like IBM, GE, TCS, and Sabre.
Data-Driven Product Strategy - An Exercise
Product managers know data is the holy grail. But they often drown in the data overload, struggle with what data to look for, and how to use it.
In this training organized by Mind the Product’s Bangalore chapter Product Tank, the 60-odd attendees were split into groups and asked to come up with a business plan for a startup that was on the verge of running out of cash.
With a timer ticking away on a screen, each group was excited and immersed in the activity. They had to analyze a large dataset and come up with a business plan to present to the board. The participants walked away with confidence in their ability to use data effectively in strategic thinking.
User Personas that Drive Product Strategy
Often user personas are so abstract that no one from engineering to design cares about it.
But what if the user persona was dissected using a framework and presented to you as a story. In this training for the leadership team at Bangalore-based farming startup, Agriapp I did exactly that.
I presented the user persona as an individual who not only uses apps but also thinks and most importantly has feelings and emotions.
This storytelling technique helped the team understand the user’s motivations, goals, frustrations, and fears. Empathizing with the user helped them build a cohesive product strategy that revolved around the user persona.
