That’s completely crazy – Episode 3 of #slowtofast

Welcome to episode number three of #slowtofast, a podcast in which we share our thoughts, ideas and experiences in product development of a fast moving digital business. We are Marcus Castenfors, Head of Product Design and Dennis Hettema, Chief Innovation Officer at Nordnet.

“That’s completely crazy” – on Theory of Constraints, fidelity sprints and prank emails

In this episode we talk about how to find the balance between fidelity and speed, a challenge for any organization working with product development. Dennis shares one of his favorite theories: The Theory of Constraints, a simple and powerful way of identifying bottle necks in your value stream. Marcus tells two stories about applying a mindset to produce more innovative and quality work. And lastly, Dennis geeks out about a new toy that he just bought for the office.
