Service Design and Product - Andy Budd on The Product Experience

BY The Product Experience on August 5, 2020

One of our favourite pub discussions after a ProductTank is to try and define the difference between a product and a service. (We’re fun like that.)

Outcomes Over Outputs - Josh Seiden on The Product Experience [Rebroadcast]

Edwards Deming wrote, “In God we trust, all others must bring data.”  Product people hold on to this as a mantra – how else can we defend ourselves from random requests? – but we’re not always taught how best to use data.  In this week’s episode, Lens.ai founder Mike Bugembe joins us on the […] Read more »

Where Do Good Ideas Come From? - Gal Josefsberg on The Product Experience

BY The Product Experience on January 8, 2020

One of the hardest skills for product people to acquire is that of saying no. After all, when everyone comes at you with ideas, prioritisation can be a massive challenge.
