Prioritisation, prioritisation, prioritisation. A common challenge in product when juggling endless feature requests and managing teams. With our flagship event, #mtpcon London, only weeks away, we look back at some of our most inspiring talks from speakers who have shared lessons on prioritisation.
Prioritising customer needs with Dan Olsen
In this keynote session at #mtpcon SF+Americas 2022, Dan Olsen, author of The Lean Product Playbook shared the importance versus satisfaction framework, and demonstrates how spending time understanding problems, rather than offering solutions, results in better products
Key takeaway: Product Managers must deeply understand customer problems and prioritize them over solutions. The ‘importance versus satisfaction’ framework provides a structured approach for mapping out problems, analyzing opportunities, and making informed decisions that lead to better product development.
Make better decisions faster with Martin Eriksson
In his keynote session at #mtpcon London 2022, Martin Eriksson, Product Partner at EQT Ventures, co-founder of Mind The Product and co-author of Product Leadership: How Top Product Managers Launch Great Products and Build Successful Teams, discussed how clearly articulated Product Principles can result in strategy-informed decision-making.
Key takeaway: Good principles are simple, memorable, actionable and highly specific to your business and strategy.
Critical thinking for product teams by Teresa Torres
At Mind the Product London 2017, Teresa Torres shared her opportunity solution tree – a visual aid that can help you find the best place to focus your team’s energies, whilst ensuring you consider enough opportunities.
Key takeaway: By being transparent in the opportunities you are exploring, you will bring your whole team into the process. This means that everyone gets involved and buys into the solutions being tested. It gives you the best possible chance of reaching the innovative solutions that occur when everyone can contribute their perspective.
