The product workers: establish continuous product discovery in teams

The product workers: establish continuous product discovery in teams

How do you establish continuous product discovery in product teams? Jan Kiekeben, Discovery Coach at XING, talks to Tim Klein about his work. The result is an interesting field report.

First, Jan Kiekeben explains his understanding of product discovery and tells about his learning journey that led him to this position. The way he landed the role is particularly exciting (and perhaps courageous). He also shares his very personal tip on this.

How does Jan Kiekeben approach the coaching? Why does he grab the so-called Product Trio in particular? How does he usually go about this and how long does he accompany a team? These questions will be discussed in the conversation.

The following books are mentioned in this episode:

  • Marty Cagan – EMPOWERED: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Products
  • Teresa Torres – Continuous Discovery Habits
  • Michael Bungay Stanier: The Coaching Habit: How to lead with questions while unleashing the potential of your employees
  • The recommended master class by Teresa Torres can be found here.

This episode is closely related to Juliana Brell’s experience report on the similar challenge at sipgate: Integrating Product Discovery into Scrum. There are further content recommendations in the product worker box. There is a lot of content selected and recommended by the product workers for the “Product Discovery” challenge.

Jan Kiekeben is happy about the exchange on the implementation of continuous product discovery in product teams. The best way to reach him is via XING or LinkedIn.
