7 Tools for the Agile Product Owner
The Modern Product Owner is both Thoughtful & Agile.
Taught by Dr. Alistair Cockburn
How do you align all the many inputs coming to you as representative of the business, keeper of the value delivered to customers and users? How do you prepare for the Sprint Planning meeting, where there must be a single, prioritized list of stories or features to present? How soon can you get feedback on your ideas?
How can you remain agile, while thinking through the path to effective results?
Beginning agile classes for business people do not adequately prepare you. In this course, learn essential skills and attitudes to obtain the views of stakeholders, organize them according to perceived value, bargain and negotiate them across conflicting departments, and line them up in a two-dimensional grid to optimize delivery in small time scales. Learn to align a flood of conflicting input and missing information to create the most valuable delivery package, while conversing with clients, users, customers, to test decisions along the way.
Learn mission statement, stakeholder analysis, motivational analysis, Kano subjective qualities, “trimming the tail” for delivering in time deadlines, actor-goal analysis, feature trading, and Jeff Patton’s story mapping. Learn how these simple techniques fit together to allow you to organize your crazy life and show up at the next sprint planning meeting confident you have the right stories to develop.
