Accelerate Your Product Development – William Treseder on The Product Experience


In our previous episode, Adam Thomas introduced how he uses a military technique (BLUF) for prioritisation. This week, former US Marine William Treseder – now co-founder and SVP of Product at innovation consultancy BMNT – joins us to talk about how he works with Government, Defense, Academic and Corporate clients to transform their innovation culture.

In this episode, sponsored by Amplitude, listen to learn about:

  • Internal Accelarators
  • The importance of Innovation
  • Design Sprints

Quote of the Episode

Trying to deliver innovation, that was actually my problem – I thought it was something that I could bring in from the outside, vs realising it was something that needs to come from within the organisation. The tools used can be from outside, but ultimately it needs to be something that’s driven internally.
