Talk: Shakeup and Speedup - Shifting up the Innovation Funnel

Starting new teams and scaling up innovation is more important than ever. The key to success
is applying different practices in different stages of the innovation lifecycle. What works for a
new business does not work for a mature one, and vice versa. In this talk, we will nosedive into
the major good practices for business leaders and product teams, from the moment they have
an innovative idea to the day they will scale it up (or screw it up). Everything depends on the
lifecycle stage of the new product or service.

Topics can include (depending on available time): Business Lifecycle, Shiftup Model,
Problem/Solution Fit, Product/Market Fit, Lean Personas, Jobs To Be Done, Value
Proposition Wheel, Pains and Gains, Lean Experiments, Minimum Viable Product, Business
Model Canvas, Lean Canvas, Innovation Cycle, North Star Metric, Product Roadmaps,
Customer Journey Maps, Business Funnel, Pirate Metrics, Growth Hacking, Growth Board,
Innovation Funnel.

Cutting edge. Comprehensive. Creative. Convenient and simply cool. The five best reasons not to miss our events. Sign up and get inspired.
