All Working Products conferences 2016-2020

  • Working Products 2020

    A real Corona experiment. Spread over 4 days to prevent digital overload. The great surprise: We could keep up the very special, friendly and familiar atmosphere in the digital world. Ok, the great outdoor experience from the Goldbekhaus is just not there on a flat screen...

    In summary

    It was a great four days. The special character of Working Products also works remotely: familiar, intensive exchange of experiences between all participants. Presumably, in 2020 again, everyone talked to every other participant at some point.

    The format

    For the remote conference, we stretched the program over 4 days because we believe that NOBODY can watch talks on screen all day. Therefore, we offered the presentations in the morning and late afternoon on each of the four days. This way we could do without the parallel tracks and every participant had the chance to see all presentations live. During the day, there were also a number of workshops.
    We had almost half of the speakers live in our office for the presentations. The others were "only" present via zoom. After each presentation, of course, the Speakers Corner. This worked almost better than live, because every audience member could hear and see everything and it was easier to discuss.

    Before each lecture block there were also meditation and movement exercises led by Beate Winter from Working Products. Beate co-founded Working Products in 2006 and is a co-organizer of the conference.

    The lectures and workshops

    Again this year, the presentations were roughly divided into the two tracks "Product and Team Culture" and "Product Management: Experiences, Tools and Methods". Since we only had one lecture track, each participant was able to view each lecture.
    Personally, I liked Christian Becker's talk, where Christian presented that user-centricity means taking care of the most important/profitable customers for the company and not fulfilling every user's every wish....
    We recorded the presentations and made them available on YouTube: Presentations WP 2020

    The social stuff

    Since barbecue, music and being outside unfortunately didn't work this year, we did an online game night instead. I didn't think that could be so much fun.

  • Working Products 2019

    Zwei Tage mit strahlendem Sonnenschein haben die Working Products 2019 zu einem Open-Air-Event gemacht. Nur die 12 Vorträge waren drinnen, alles andere fand im Freien statt. Dafür war das Goldbekhaus der perfekte Ort. Vor allem natürlich auch mit den Kanus und Bogenschießen.
    Die Vorträge waren wieder sehr schön. Nach jedem Vortrag gab es noch intensive Diskussionen und Fragerunden mit den Speakern in der Speakers Corner.
    Nachmittags wurde in den Sessions zu den verschiedensten Produktmanagement-Themen gemeinsam gearbeitet. Natürlich im Freien.

    In diesem Jahr gab es zusätzlich noch 4 Workshops zu Produktmanagement und Achtsamkeit.
    Aber das Wichtigste waren wieder die vielen Gespräche zwischen den Teilnehmern. Vermutlich hat wieder jeder irgendwann mal mit jedem anderen Teilnehmer gesprochen.

  • Working Products 2018

    2 days of sun, being outside, exchange and good talks.
    Two days of bright sunshine made Working Products 2018 an open-air event. Only the 12 presentations were indoors, everything else took place outdoors. For this, the Goldbekhaus was the perfect place. Especially of course with the canoes and stand-up paddling.
    All lectures were of course great. After each presentation there were intensive discussions and Q&A sessions with the speakers in the Speakers Corner.
    In the afternoon, we worked together in the sessions on various product management topics. Outdoors, of course.
    But the most important thing was again the many conversations between the participants. Probably everyone talked to every other participant at some point.

  • Working Products 2016

    On the first conference day there were 12 presentations in two tracks. After each presentation there was time to exchange with the speaker and other conference topics in the "Speakers Corner".
    At the end there were two discussion rounds and afterwards there was some partying. On the second day, the participants were able to discuss product management topics and develop solutions together in 9 sessions in the ProductSpace.
