What will you learn?
- Have you trained or coached other product people to do what you are doing as a designer? How successful have they been in being able to replicate the results?
- What are the biggest mistakes you see these product makers and startups make in their pursuit of design finesse? What do you see as a waste of time in what they do today?
- What are your favorite books & other resources on product design? If people had to teach themselves to design awesome products, what do you suggest they do?
- If you had to coach me to use visual thinking to launch a successful product in 4 weeks, and you had a million dollars in the line, what would the coaching look like?
