Screw it! Let’s try it! – Episode 2 of #slowtofast

Welcome to episode number two of #slowtofast, a podcast in which we share our thoughts, ideas and experiences in product development in a fast moving digital business. We are Marcus Castenfors, Head of Product Design and Dennis Hettema, Chief Innovation Officer at Nordnet.

“Screw it! Let’s try it!”

In this episode we discuss something that every company struggles with: what tools to use. Dennis argues that tools should always be submissive to the process. The conversation turns a bit existential when Marcus opens up and speaks about the flipside of being a design manager. Marcus also tells the story of AirBnB’s road to success and Dennis talks about creating a “bullshit free zone”.
