We had an evening full of interesting lightning talks followed by an intensive fishbowl panel at the betahaus Berlin.

Lightning talks

Chaehan So, COO of Axel Springer Ideas Engineering GmbH, on: Why product owners hate product discovery. Engaging everybody in organizational change and leveraging one’s intrinsic motivational structure. There’s no one-size-fits-all for your change message, tweak it to fit your audience.


Darryl Feldmann, Product Director at DaWand, on: Why Minimum Viable Product is often not enough to get users to fall in love with your products. Is the MVP a vehicle to crank out a crappy product idea fast and avoid thinking? Why would you abuse the empirical MVP process to find out about what people may expect from you if there’s only need for incremental improvements of your product?

The discussion topic that stuck with us was: What makes a product cool? and the people who joined.
