On-site and remote product workshop

The development phase of your product may take weeks or months. We always advise our clients to start this process with a product workshop that will help define your product’s fundamental features and make sure you’re about to build something really significant.


Define the vision for your product

During product discovery workshops, you will discuss different aspects of your product with seasoned experts: technologists, creatives, strategists. The outcome? The workshop may prompt you to totally redefine your initial product vision, narrow down the scope, or perhaps only slightly tweak your plans. Either way, you’ll end up with a clear idea of your product and a list of user stories the team can start working on right away.

Successful product redefinition

LESS_, now a trending European marketplace for pre-owned fashion, started out as a distinctly different idea. During the product discovery workshop, we were able to redefine the purpose of the app and lay the groundwork for the successful product it is today.

During your product workshop, we will cover:


We’ll look at your product from the business perspective and strategize to ensure a successful launch. We’ll base our activities on the following techniques and concepts:
- Business Model Canvas / User-Centered Design Canvas / Lean Canvas
- Value Proposition Canvas
- Stakeholder Map
- Future Press Release
- Success metrics
- Gartner’s Hype Cycle
- Service Blueprint
- Values, mission & vision
- Competitive analysis
- Benchmarking


In order to create a product that will delight users and help them solve their problems, we’ll do a series of exercises, for instance:
- User Story Mapping,
- The Golden Path,
- User Personas,
- Customer Journey,
- Empathy Map,
- Benefit Table,
- Information Architecture,
- Mood board,
- Branding activities: personality challenge, sketches, crazy 8s, tone and voice.


One of the foundations of our process is to always make sure our tech recommendations are feasible and optimal for a given product. That’s why, during the product workshop, you will get a chance to discuss the tech matters with an experienced software architect. You’ll go over the features, necessary integrations, DevOps needs, and quality assurance. Based on the workshop’s outcome, our tech lead will come up with viable technical solutions for the project.

Our proven process


Before the workshop

If you can provide us with some initial data about the project, we’ll analyze it to start the workshop on an equal footing. We might also need to conduct our own research about your future users and the market.

During the workshop

Within these three days, we will look at your product from different perspectives, evaluate the initial assumptions, and work out a plan for successful product development and launch.

After the workshop

You’ll have a defined vision for your product—you’ll know which user stories should be implemented for the MVP and which can be built later. The product roadmap, together with clickable prototypes, will enable you to kickstart your project.

“The code and the work were of good quality and were really what we were looking for. They were able to bring technical design thinking to the project. Project management was tight and I always knew what was happening.“

“Apptension was flexible and professional. When I needed to quickly add capacity, it took a week or two at worst - often days. The cooperation enabled me to slowly scale up my own IT team, and the company was very helpful until the last moments of the transition.”
