For
evidence-based Product Development


Product Development can be evidence-based or assumption-based

Innovation is hard to do right. And it never goes quite as fast as you’d want.

Exactly how you develop your products makes all the difference. Many product ideas are based on assumptions and then developed from a solution- or technology point of view. This limits outcomes and creates products without a real customer’s need.

We give the end user a voice early in the process. Collecting real data will give you insights to kill those high risk assumptions and make informed decisions. This is what we call evidence-based product development.

And we move fast: think weeks, not months. So you create the right product, a whole lot faster.

WE RUN DESIGN SPRINTS

We’re crazy about Google Design Sprints. In just 4 days you design a product, solve big problems or test completely new ideas. And validate your work in the smartest possible ways. So you’ll have real answers, not assumptions. It’s an essential tool for product developers. Especially for those who cannot afford to loose months of time.

WE TRAIN PEOPLE TO RUN DESIGN SPRINTS

We ran 25+ Design Sprints. Tap into this knowledge and learn how to Sprint yourself. You’ll not only learn the essentials but also practical tips and tricks to get even more out of the method. Like facilitation tips, growth tactics and how to internalize Sprints in your day to day product development process.

PLANNED TRAININGS
WE BOOST YOUR PRODUCT IN A DAY

You have a good product out there. But you feel there should be more? Maybe expand the feature set, or enter new markets? Maybe a 4 day Design Sprint is overkill, but let’s do a 1 Day Product Booster.

You’ll be amazed how much you can improve in just 1 day. And these are great days for for team building.

Design Sprint Videos

We slashed risk, boosted innovation and saved time for many different companies.

Here’s what others say:

Together with Aart we introduced the concept of design sprints within ING. The sprint we conducted was the first of many to follow. In this first sprint we learned a lot about what we should NOT build. Which saved us an incredible amount of money. Next to these valuable product insights we also learned a lot about our users and about our team. 

The way Aart facilitated the sprint made us grow closer as a team, be extremely productive, while having lots of fun at the same time. We couldn’t imagine a design sprint being so powerful!​

Steven Roest

Product Area Lead – ING

Our design sprint was very successful and led to concrete results for direct implementation. Aart communicates well with developers, product owners and business stakeholders. His structured approach and time keeping helped the team to stay focused on getting concrete results within the sprint. Aart is also able to assist the team from his own experience as developer and project manager. I was positively surprised how useful it was for the team that Aart conducted the user interviews at the end of the sprint.

Michiel Tibboel

Product Director – Bright River

Aart pulled us through a 5 day sprint. It turned out to be a week full of emotion, frustration, relieve, creativity and decisions.

A week ending with a tremendous sense of accomplishment. About the process, the tools we learned, our learnings and the product we deliverd. Many Thanks!

Michiel Rigterink

Senior Marketing Advisor – PH&C

Wow, we’re impressed how much we accomplished in our Sprint. In just a couple of days. We had a big group, but Aart took facilitation on without breaking a sweat! At the right moments he brought his knowledge on product development to the table.

Aart made us confident in running our own sprints. – Which we actually do now!
