Welcome to episode number six of #slowtofast, a podcast in which we share our thoughts, ideas and experiences in product development and design or as Dennis puts it:
“A podcast on how you can change your organization from a slow-moving beast to fast-moving leopard…”
We are your hosts: Marcus Castenfors, Head of Product Design and Dennis Hettema, Chief Innovation Officer at Nordnet.
In this episode Dennis shares his thoughts on what he refers to as “gravity”, a law of nature in product development: accepting that you have limited resources. Marcus gives examples of how you can create a positive mess in your creative process, causing interesting solutions to flourish. We also have a long rant about Agile. Why should you apply Agile methods? What are the benefits? And lastly, we talk about treating happiness as a skill, just like investing is a skill or nutrition is a skill.
