  1. Product and UX - how do the roles overlap?

    Who's designing the user experience in your organisation? Should product managers be wireframing, or should it be left to interaction designers and UX specialists? Let's explore how the two roles overlap and how PMs and UX designers work together best.

          • Agile/Kanban/waterfall/blah/whatever methodologies stop us seeing the forest through the trees...

            Ok so this is a bit of a controversial topic title but I am getting more and more convinced (and worried) that the more we talk about process, process, process, the less concerned we are with how *good* what we are creating actually *is*.

            Processes are all well and good but no substitute for being smart, coming up with *good* ideas and implementing them well. What if everyone was able to feel like they were the owner of the project, be incentivised in the right way (and no, I'm not talking about money), feel the pain when things go wrong…

            • But how much are they willing to pay?

              Establishing the price point for a new product or service can be incredibly difficult - we meet customers and get a positive reaction to the new product idea, but finding the answer to the question “So how much shall we charge?” doesn't seem any nearer. This session explores techniques for establishing the price point for new products.

                • Usability testing best practices

                  User testing is one of the (often neglected) tasks in product management. It would be interesting to find out more about the best way of going about it. How many users? What tools can make it easier? Format of testing?

                                      • What Nietzsche can teach us about product management

                                        In his book Also spoke Zarathustra Nietzsche introduces several concepts that can be applied to a product creation environment. For example; be suspicious of general assumptions, be suspicious of your own assumptions. Work towards the best product possible, but be aware that you might not get there easily. Remember that total control is always one step ahead of you.

                                          Would be good to talk about product ideas, not just processes!
