Intro to improv (In product design and product management)


In design-related fields, we can observe the tendency for over-preparedness. Whether it comes from the curse of perfectionism or is an effect of impostor syndrome, learning the ropes of improv might help you reach new heights as a designer, researcher, or product manager.
During the workshops, we’ll show the basic concept of improv from the perspective of a seasoned improviser (Ewa) and a designer who’s only recently fallen in love with improv (Filip)
We’ll practice:
- being present here and now (important in every project),
- creating ideas based on minimal information/inspiration (very Lean!),
- being flexible and open to constant change (so Agile!),
- active listening and building upon someone’s else ideas with the “yes’and” rule (Design Thinking at its finest),
- treating every mistake as a gift and a chance for new experiments (hi there, Product Discovery practitioners!).
Our fast-paced and slides-free workshop will be based on improv games, sometimes transformed to better fit the design processes and workshops, that you can implement in your work nearly right away.
