Live again in 2023 at the Goldbekhaus in Hamburg:-)
All services and products are becoming increasingly digital. This affects all companies, from startups to DAX-listed corporations. The development of innovative and successful digital services and products is extremely complex, has to be done very quickly and requires maximum customer and user focus.
This requires a product and customer culture in the company, new forms of organization and collaboration, and the appropriate methods and processes. Mindfulness and mindful leadership are also becoming increasingly important.
Everyone is practicing this right now. Some companies are already very far along in this respect, while the vast rest are trying to catch up and learn from the pioneers. There is still a lot of potential for improvement, especially in the day-to-day work of product managers.
We want to support this joint learning process with the Working Products Conference.
"Working Products" is the conference for agile working as it was originally intended: free of hierarchical structures, no lecturing from above, no show. Agile working culture as it should be. At "Working Products", people with the same interests and topics come together. Experienced and committed speakers who have something to say as well as interested and motivated participants who make a difference. By spreading the presentations over 2 days and the moderated workshops and sessions, "Working Products" promotes exchange among like-minded people.
Without fear of contact, close and at eye level. Familiar and professional at the same time. As always, the supporting program includes meditation and mindfulness exercises, yoga and embodiment. We also offer professional childcare, canoe tours and standup paddling on the canal in front of the Goldbekhaus.
As usual, the vegan-vegetarian catering will be provided by the wonderful Produktionsschule Altona.
We will have 16 talks and 7 workshops around product management, corporate culture, agile working and mindfulness. In addition, there will be various workshops and an open space on Thursday. There will certainly be a lot of exchange between participants and presenters.
"The special thing about the Working Products: In the end, everyone actually talked to everyone else for a longer time." (Rolf Schulte Strathaus)
Finally a live conference again after 2019. It was like a family reunion. Many familiar faces, again at Goldbekhaus, again with the super delicious catering of the production school Altona.
It was a great 2 days. Familiar, intensive exchange of experiences between all participants, good lectures and workshops. Even the cold and rainy weather did not really matter. Although, no one has used the standup paddle boards...
Two days of bright sunshine made Working Products 2019 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 archery.

Our focus is on user-centered product discovery, user research and UX testing. Our drive: create perfect products - in a team and always with the user in focus. And that's exactly why we host the Working Products Conference every year.
Our interest: We bring customer and user understanding to product teams - permanently and sustainably.
Arbeitsfrische aims to make the world of work better. We combine experience with self-organization with coaching, mindfulness, yoga and embodiment, because we believe that long-term and sustainable change starts with each individual. New forms of collaboration also need a new mindset in each individual. The basics (empathy, listening, trust) need to be learned (again). If I practice mindfulness with myself and I train mindful interaction in the team, I can work successfully, healthy and satisfied in the long run.
Mindfulness as the basis for change
Interested in becoming a sponsor of Working Products 2023?
We have been fans of beyond tellerrand for a very long time. The atmosphere, the exchange between participants and the familiar, friendly spirit are great. Very similar to Working Products:-)
The next event of beyond tellerrand is on September 11th and 12th in Berlin.
Jürgen is a recruiter specialized in product managers.
You can hire him if you want to fill open positions with perfectly fitting product managers. If you are looking for a change, Jürgen can also help you to find the right company.
"I place the best product managers and product strategists. Headhunter and networker with passion!"
"We product workers want to promote the competence of product owners, product managers and product organizations to develop better products and services.
Produktwerker: Tim Klein, Dominique Winter & Oliver Winter. As experts for product development we got to know and appreciate each other in the agile community of Cologne. We joined forces in a cooperative to pool our knowledge, create joint offerings and share our years of experience with other product people.
We support the 8th Working Products as a cooperation partner because we know that there is room for topics at this special event that are talked about far too little at other conferences. Working Products is human, close & professional - just like us."
For 40 years, the Goldbekhaus has been a place for communication and encounters, for culture, creativity and movement, and is probably the best-known district cultural center in Hamburg beyond the borders of its own district. Countless artists have been guests on its stages, generations of Winterhude residents have moved and been moved here, tried things out and been inspired. Many initiatives have originated here and have shaped life in the district and have even been noticed beyond its borders.
The Goldbekhaus is a water-washed house. It offers a variety that only a district cultural center can afford and is a lively place with theater, comedy and concerts, children's programs, flea markets, parties, projects, workshops and courses.
We have been working with the Altona Production School for over 10 years now. First only at the World Usability Day and then since 2016 also for the Working Products Conference.
The Altona Production School is a special kind of school. Here, young people can catch up on their first general school-leaving certificate (Hauptschulabschluss). What makes it special are the various workshops (carpentry, painting, gastronomy, Internet and graphics), where the young people learn a craft.
