Holistic Product Discovery | Marcus Castenfors & Martin Christensen (Crisp & Agile UX‪)‬ Product with Panash

    • Technology

#27: In this episode, Axel chats with fellow product coaches Martin Christensen and Marcus Castenfors, co-authors of Holistic Product Discovery, a book that provides a structured framework for product discovery.
And they caution against relying on a recipe for success – we can't all be Gordon Ramsay, after all.
So, imagine you're the Karate Kid, and Mr. Miyagi is teaching you how to paint the fence. You might not understand it at first, but eventually, you'll become a karate master. Or, in this case, a product management master. Just don't wax on, wax off too hard.
