Mia has been tweaking and updating after each training to always keep it up do date based on new findings in her coaching and hands on experience with clients. Mia is a well known coach, trainer and speaker within Lean UX, Product Management and Product Ownership.

Target of the training

Learn how to work in an Agile process for innovation where design thinking (research), Lean UX (hypothesis driven ideation and continuous validation) and Agile development (Scrum). With collaborative work in a cross functional team you will go from business problem to impact goal, to learning about the users, to exploring ideas and designing paper prototypes and validating your assumptions continuously.

What earlier students say about this training

The training gave me a lot of inspiration and creativity with help by goals, personas and workflows without not designing anything. Focus is on how the design can support different customers key goals, behaviors and feelings dependent on where they are at the moment. A true a-ha experience but at the same time so obvious. Two really interesting days with a lot of different workshops. This training took me and my employer a big step closer to the customer. I truly recommend it!

I really feel that I will get use of what I learned during these two days in my work as a product designer

About Mia

 

Mia is an Enterprise Agile Coach, PO, UX, Marketing and Learning Designer.
Co-Founder of Agilakontrakt.se & Dandy People

I help big organizations, companies and agencies disrupt and transform their ways of working, to be able to innovate and deliver valuable products in shorter lead time with less work – and at the same time build strong organizations that continue to improve end evolve by them selves. I love to engage and create trust among people as well as enable teams and people to grow, making them have fun together, become stronger and more T-shaped in their skill set as well as making them work as a team taking on missions and delivering together and feel proud of their success.

My strongest focus the last 15 years has been to on WHY and WHAT to deliver something, and to WHO. It is important to gain customer and business value in the product development process as well as optimizing existing solutions to give the best impact. Today we call these kind of organizations and teams for Data Driven Development, Hypothesis Driven Development, Customer Centric Development and Lean Service Creation. I find that Agile and Lean UX ways of working is the best way to support this type of development and I have together with one of my former Colleagues coined the expression “Lean Team” for this way of working.

As a Agile Coach I help enabling good communication, collaboration and continuous improvement through processes and methods that brings people together with clear common goals and a human centered approach to both product development and organization development. It is important to me to create an environment of trust and collaboration. By doing that we can better solve problems, prioritize what to focus on and deliver value to the business and the user with less effort and time.

As a Transformation Coach my strength is in my ability to lead and communicate horizontally in the organization, to transform incrementally by being part of the operative work to support and create structure and build strong internal catalyst leadership that focuses on people, the value they bring and how the system can support that in the best way possible.
