  9. 1. Listening to your market
    ● Strong link to our customers:
    ○ Customer Care reports: quantitative & qualitative
    ○ Customer research (UX dept)
    ○ PMs keeping up-to-date and running benchmarks
    ○ Internal dialog / brainstorms: use internal brain
    power (it’s really strong!)
    ○ Promote idea exchange & culture of challenging
    anything - nothing is granted!

  10. 2. Ideating
    ● Build your case:
    ○ Shape what to do
    ○ Justify it:
    ■ Define your vision
    ■ Problem/need that solves
    ■ Provide facts (numbers): internal & external data
    ■ Define & estimate dev project: what you’ll deliver
    when
    ■ Get it signed off!

  11. 3. Deliver to customers quickly
    ● So you have your budget to develop… yeah!
    ○ Write your product specs (as user stories)
    ○ Work out your UX
    ○ Get your visuals when needed (normally they are in
    customer facing tech products!)
    ○ Put your engineers to develop in agile mode, not
    forgetting your tracking!
    ○ Be ready to ask questions and be the 1st QA rep

  12. 4. Measure and get feedback
    ● Track what your KPIs say:
    ○ Success / fail?
    ○ Analyse & extract actionable conclusions:
    how to improve results
    ○ Decide product evolution:
    ■ New features
    ■ What to remove
    ○ And get back to step #3

  13. Development process management

  14. Common pitfalls & traps
    ● Paralizing by analysing: a (tech) company is like a
    bicycle, if you stop, you fall down
    ● Not defining the right KPIs for your goals
    ● Not considering your stakeholders right and
    engaging them late

  16. Product Development in Spain / Tuenti /
    other places
    ● Spain:
    ○ doesn’t exist or very scarce at least on the tech
    landscape, even though it’s changing
    ○ often understood as product marketing
    ● .Tuenti:
    ○ pretty much understood the American way
    ○ be the CEO of your product, very linked to tech
