Mindful Product Ownership

Applying Mindfulness to Value Analysis and Management

Is this you?

  • Striving to deliver innovative solutions in a competitive market where disruption and volatility are the norm?
  • Aiming to create an excellent user experience and customer delight while their demands constantly change?
  • Juggling being a product owner, product manager and analyst across multiple teams?

In today’s constantly changing world, product owners are under more pressure to deliver innovative products and services that not only meet customer expectations but exceed them. It can be difficult to understand what will deliver real value, while technology and customer demands constantly change. Not only that, product owners must collaborate effectively with customers, stakeholders and delivery teams, with little or no time.

Product owners must think differently, helping teams to try out new ideas, experiment and learn whilst keeping objectives in sight. However, day-to-day pressures and stress can impede creativity and learning. It takes more just than persistence and hard work to manage these demands. Product owners need mindfulness.

Mindfulness is the quality of being fully conscience or aware. Beyond simple awareness, you will learn how mindfulness helps you to show up as the very best version of yourself. Mindfulness improves focus, enables clearer thinking and better decision making that lead to more successful outcomes. This practical workshop will help you deeply understand your customers and be more effective in your role. You will learn how to apply mindfulness techniques to customer analysis, creative thinking, team collaboration and communications.
