Understand how to assess product opportunities using lean and Agile practices. In this course, Exploring Assessing Evidence-based Opportunities, you’ll learn to explore opportunities in the market instead of ideas and applying them via design and lean thinking practices, as well as keeping stakeholders satisfied by validating their ideas.
First, you’ll explore how to generate solution ideas, which techniques can be used to generate them, how to evaluate them, how to prioritize them; as well as discussing prioritization of ideas versus opportunities.
Next, you’ll discover how to create prototypes on different levels, prototyping benefits, exploring ideas with prototyping; and tips and benefits about working together with product designers and how to manage
the co-designing process.
Finally, you’ll learn how to create a stakeholder validation plan, its preparation steps, usage of prototypes in the plan, including data collection as evidence, and applying design thinking practices to iteratively improve the plan.
When you are finished with the course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of exploring the delivery and evolution of the products with opportunities discovered and executed, needed to compete with the products in the market.

Course Overview Hi. I'm Sarper Horata, and welcome to my course, Assessing Evidence‑Based Product Opportunities. I'm a computer scientist and ex‑developer, product manager, author, and consultant. In product management, it can be troublesome to create ideas and opportunities, as well as prioritizing them, executing them, and based on the evidences, improve them or pivot them on the product level. In this course, I will walk you through all of this. First, we will cover the idea generation process, discussing five great idea generation techniques that can be used in ideation in detail for our problem. Then, we will discuss about prototyping, what it is, benefits, different levels called creating prototypes to explore ideas, and the pain points of validation prototypes. Aside from prototyping and its details, we will also go through the code designing process, evaluating it from different perspectives. And finally, we will go through the validation process of stakeholders and customers and showing the differences in the flow and how they are being operated. By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation on ideation and prioritization techniques, prototyping, understanding designers, your users, and create stakeholder validation plan using lean and design‑thinking practices. I hope you will join me on this journey on Pluralsight.
