Map the unknowns of your product development
Orbis Analysis Discovery Class
Product development is an adventure into the wilderness. You are forging a path no one has followed before toward a vision that can change the world. Your goal may be clear, but the way to get there is hidden in fog and forests. If you jump right in you, you could easily find yourself slogging through a dark odorous swamp with the sound of something following you…
What you need is a map that reveals where the dragons are hiding in your project, enabling you to prepare effectively and chart the most efficient path. Orbis Analysis is a new product planning framework that creates this map. Orbis Analysis distills over fifteen years of experience in product development into a simple, scalable process that generates actionable intelligence immediately.
This class will introduce basic concepts of Orbis Analysis using interactive project exercises. Topics include
- Product description and how to capture complete functionality
- Mapping product knowns and unknowns
- Managing fractal feature hierarchies
- System-level refactoring to reduce product complexity
You will leave this class knowing how to quantify your uncertainty, bound your project scope, and what your next priority is.
