The Craft of Product Development + The Product Mindset

Scott Varho, SVP of Tech at 3Pillar Global

Sometimes, it can be difficult to articulate the value of investments in the details of building products. But when those decisions can help us deploy products faster — we can see real benefits. So, what good are design thinking, lean methodologies, and advances in user research if all those findings sit in a test environment somewhere instead of in production? In this discussion, we dig in on these “nitty-gritty” decisions we often have to make — and how The Product Mindset can help us make better product decisions like these.
