Product Development is Broken

66%

of features fail to deliver value

Microsoft started tracking every feature and discovered that only 33% of good ideas actually delivered the expected value

42%

of people have their hands tied

The delivery team know what is best but they are blocked by company structure and policies from doing the right thing.

22%

more time spent on rework

Teams that use legacy development practices spend more time on rework which kills motivation and slows delivery.

There's a Better Way of Building Products

Projects involve functions temporarily working together to deliver a set scope, but this limits the ability to learn about customers and forces a more short term view. What we need is for the right mix of skills across Product, UX, Design, Dev and Ops to be working together to learn, build and continuously improve the product. 

From Waterfall Projects
To Cross Functional Product Teams

Design is more than just pixels. It's about how teams can utilise design thinking to solve the identified customer problems, and how can we validate the ideas the team comes up with actually works? The Design stream cover the key stages of ideation, hypothesis forming and validation through prototypes and other means. Independent product teams introduce a challenge for consistency so we also cover the best practices in design systems to mitigate these challenges.

Designing a mature product: Evolution of legacy

Yulia Zozulya, UI/UX Designer, JetBrains GmbH

If your product is successful and has been running for a while, you will face legacy problems - old processes that not work anymore, old designs that require an update or new designs that need to fit into existing environments.

In this session, I will show you examples of how to design changes in functionality that is currently used by many users and how to adapt existing processes so that they don't stand in the way of doing that.

Enabling teams to iteratively build solutions requires a different approach to architecture and development. The Big Design Up Front (BDUF) needs to be replaced with architectural forcing functions that ensure that teams can self manage safely. The Architect and Build stream dives into the approaches for architecting systems knowing that changes will come and sharing approaches that companies are using to enable sustainable delivery over time.

Creating a product team isn't as simple as re-branding a project team. The responsibilities and expectations have changed - and change is hard. The Building a Team stream covers the mindset shift for people moving from working in clear silos to working collaboratively across UX, UI, Dev and Product and building the t-shaped skills necessary to support modern product development. It also covers the adaptive leadership approach required to guide and mentor the team to success.

Releases used to be measured in months - now they are measured in minutes. This can seem like an insurmountable challenge for companies dealing with legacy systems and long testing cycles, but it is critical to enable the quick feedback cycles we need to learn about our customers. The Continuous Delivery stream dives into the approaches that companies are using to migrate safely away from legacy systems and automate their DevOps release processes.

Turning Motivation into Action

Rory Madden, Founder, UXDX

Working as product teams delivers better results but making the shift involves changing how teams and companies work - and change is hard. 

How do we convince people that we have thought through the implications of the changes that we are proposing without getting bogged down in months of analysis, meetings and pointless whiteboard strategising. 

In this talk Rory will give an introduction to the UXDX framework, which is the result of years of hands on experience helping teams to make the transition from projects to products.
