Address Myths

Avoid myths that hold Product Owners back.

  • "As a, I want to, So that": Is it a great idea to write all stories in the same format? In our experience there is no one correct way to write your backlog items. We cover a variety of styles so you can use what works in your context. You will likely find that you will benefit from several styles.
  • PO a conduit of information flow: Think it is a great idea to meet with customers, gather requirements, then explain it all to the developers? Perhaps you can spend your time more wisely by engaging those who want, and those who create, together. This allows you to focus your time on the more strategic objective of discovering what to build and in what sequence.
  • Going live is risky: Ultimately, the only way to know if your strategy works is to go live and measure actual business outcomes. Any time you go live with something new there is a risk, but you need to weight this against the alternative as there is great risk in delaying the go-live event as learning is the ultimate answer to uncertainty.

What You Learn...

The agenda for the session is shown.

  • The Role of the Product Owner in its many forms: How does the theory of the role compare with the reality at your organization? Learn how to make the most of your position based upon the type of business you’re in, the products or services that you helm, the lifecycle in which those products exist, your organization’s maturity and more.
  • Advanced stakeholder and customer engagement: Product Owners hear a lot about “saying no,” an appropriate thought given that much of their job boils down to scope management with perspective, but this is much easier said than done. Work through a variety of real-world situations that veer from the ideal and learn how you can work most effectively you're your unique set of stakeholders.
  • Launching new Scrum teams and projects: Learn how to rapidly but thoughtfully kick off a new team or new engagement, considering how to properly align roles, create a basis for appropriate collaboration between the team and stakeholders, and communicate a compelling vision along with practical means to measure progress against it.
  • Scaling to larger projects: Explore how and when to apply multiple teams against a common goal with a coherent backlog, intelligent dependency management and proper synchronization… without falling into a host of common traps.
  • Designing and communicating product strategy: Practice crafting and comparing business models, creating targeted experiments, and prioritizing opportunities by value, time and economic impact.
  • Advanced backlog and release management: Delve into a variety of techniques for prioritizing the backlog in tricky situations, creating long-term roadmaps without sacrificing adaptability, optimizing release strategies and demonstrating return on investment for agile efforts.
