Product Enablement Principles

Product Direction
UXDX Community: [In-Person] Product Enablement Principles in partnership with Product Tank 2023

As John gets settled into his new product enablement role at Toast, he will discuss his reassessment of his own principles when it comes to operations, enablement, and generally helping others. Areas of focus for his talk will include how to build:

  • Happy teams, happy customers
  • Principles before process
  • Partners, not stakeholders: Co-designing change experiments with others
  • A force-multiplier: Trust = (Credibility + Reliability + Empathy)/Apparent self-interest
  • Safe-to-fail experiments and operationalize
