I'm ever-taken by the principles of product management, and find ways to incorporate disciplines of deep user empathy, data-driven decision making, and cross-disciplinary diplomacy into each media project.
However, media often operates at a far faster clip than software. Things 'ship' within two to four weeks, which would only amount to two sprints. So optimally while projects require a more considered approach, others get right into the practicalities of quickly mapping user experience whilst content is in production.
As exhibited in the Case Studies linked below, the value of advocating the shopper mindset is central - whether engaging with millennials at retail, college students grabbing a quick bite, or the treasure-hunter who, despite one's best intentions, joyfully indulges in impulse buys at Costco.
