überproduct Seminars and Workshops in Lean Product Management

I share my long and intense experience in Product and Innovation Management, combined with Lean Development methods in a carefully selected and crafted set of seminars and workshops. Below you can find my current offerings for open trainings.


In Lean Product Management everything is focused on and pulled from actual customers’ needs. To reach this goal, a good flow of information needs to be present in a company. My trainings therefore are built around the interfaces and workflows of departments, to the flow of information and work, leading to improved capacities and capabilities in doing the right things and doing them right. My three elementary trainings all take just one day. An integrated Lean Product Management Training, offering all topics combined in one integrated approach takes two days out of your valuable time.

Trainings - Überblick


User Story Mapping (1 Day)

My Training on User Story Mapping teaches Jeff Patton’s technique which helps to achieve a shared view on the product to be built between stakeholders, business and development departments or amongst an integrated, agile team. Often times there are many things not outspoken or only implicit, Also, there a lots of complaints that across sprints or iterations, the unifying big picture is lost. Story mapping helps in all these aspects. It visualizes the big picture AND the details of a new product. As a side effect, requirements management gets much clearer, release planning is hands on and much more.

Portfolio and Strategy Board (1 Day)

The Portfolio Board, in a first step, helps to coordinate and align all stakeholders or departments of the development department on a shared view and understanding of the companies’ product and service portfolio. An advanced approach to Portfolio Boards includes the 3 horizons model towards innovation management and strategy. I was one of the first to publicly speak on Portfolio boards and was nominated for the Brickell Key Award for my work in this field. This is the one unifying technique that has delivered great results in company culture and alignment in nearly all cases.

 Lean User Research (1 Day)

A further cornerstone to success is to really know about your customers’ needs – not only in a quantitative but also a qualitative way. My Lean User Research training offers basic customer research techniques for all phases of product work from exploration to UX testing. It is ideal for anyone involved in product development. Every little bit of User Research is better than the “audacity of zero” insights (Eric Ries).

Lean Product Management and Exploration (2 Days)

My Lean Product Management Training delivers all techniques mentioned in the 1 day elementary trainings integrated in a whole Product management life cycle experience from the discovery of customers’ needs, their validation over finding solutions (ideation) to their validation, definition of metrics, MVPs and much more until we finally define the initial story map of the new product. Lean Product Management combines die techniques and power of Design Thinking with the effectiveness and validation of Lean Startup.

Google Design Sprint (4-5 Days)

The Google Design Sprint is a 5 day experience going through all phases of Lean Product Management. It aims on aligning a team on a validated product vision, starting from a hunch of a customer problem. The result is an initial, validated solution sketch and an aligned team that shares a deep experience going through the ups and downs of the discovery process. The results help to reduce waste during the development phase through better communication and validated research results. The Google Design Sprint is only offered as a workshop tailored to your very context. For details and conditions please contact me.

All Trainings also Inhouse

Of course, all these trainings can be tailored to your context and delivered in your offices. Please contact me with your idea!
