Working with Agencies

5. November 2019 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Most companies are outsourcing at least some of their software development at some point in time. Whether this happens directly in the business department or via a product manager, collaborating with external developers can lead to cultural, financial and technical challenges. This workshop sets you up for success when it comes to creating contracts and working with external tech agencies.


Who is it for?

Product managers, C-level management and other business stakeholders involved in working with external tech agencies.

What we will achieve

  • Avoid typical mistakes in contracts with software agencies.
  • Use a framework to understand how and when external agencies can help you.
  • Discuss different team setups to successfully work with external team members (remotely and in-house).
  • Detect signs of dysfunctions in the collaboration and learn how to deal with them.

Hands-on exercises

  • Apply the framework to your company.
  • Review existing or pending contracts by using our checklist.


Individual Follow-up Coaching Option

To maximize the value of this course for your organization, we offer an additional follow-up coaching (60 minutes, remote) just for you or your team a couple of weeks after the course. That way, you get to ask all the questions that might have popped up once you tried implementing what you learned in this course.

The follow-up coaching is available for CHF 350 and includes 30 minutes of preparation for your specific questions or documents (sent upfront) and 60 minutes of remote coaching via video call for you or your entire product team.

You can book the Follow-up Coaching Option in our booking form before proceeding to the checkout.



All participants will receive a Product Academy Certificate for this course.  



CHF 350
