Companies are not user-centric: bringing the user into the board room

Digital transformation and development are expensive. Meanwhile, customers' expectations are rising, and the competitive landscape is only intensifying. How do you know which services or features to invest in? User research pays huge dividends to validate ideas or assumptions before betting the bank. Yet many companies don't have this fully embedded in their strategy and way-of-working. Or it's window-dressing at best, where insights and metrics don't drive meaningful decisions. In this talk, we'll give practical examples of low-threshold ways to involve customers throughout the validation stream.

De-risking your digital investment through informed decision making

In digital, the business perspective is as crucial as the customer or technology viewpoints. This talk will guide you on how to ensure that teams make tactical decisions using business insights.

Get ready for the post-prompt era

In a world flooded by the waves of Generative AI, it’s not surprising to witness some hasty integrations of AI into your everyday digital experiences. From word processors to air conditioning systems, the widespread nature of AI features is undeniable. However, the question pops up: are these AI additions enhancing the user experience? Or merely causing a prompt writer’s block? We believe we’re setting sail towards the post-prompt era.

Low code: will it scale?

Low-code platforms have been around for a while now, and they promise to revolutionise the way we build software products. With limited coding skills required, anyone can create a proof of concept or prototype for their product idea in a matter of hours, rather than weeks or months. But the question is, can these low-code solutions scale? In this talk, we’ll delve into the potential and limitations of no-code platforms for scaling products and how they’ll affect the way of working and the roles involved in product development.
