Product development is, or at least should be, a user-centred discipline, but often has a strained relationship with the design teams that have to bring that product to life. We’ll look in this session at what the role of Product Development is, how more and more companies are thinking of their digital services as ‘product’, and the very thin line Product Development has to tread in the user-centred design process between empowering a design team, and potentially alienating them altogether.

At Fluxx, he specialises in innovation techniques and in Product Development, driving products and propositions that are loved by consumers and create value for the brands they work with.
