Product Visioning in the Agile World
Nike’s “Just Do It!” slogan could easily be mistaken for an agile mantra. Quickly jumping into writing user stores to get the delivery team working on a backlog as quickly as possible is the way to go, right? Actually, no, not really! Coming up with user stories for the latest ‘hot’ product fads with minimal thought results in creating an ad-hoc mix of user stories that looks like a ’feature soup’! This makes delivering business value aligned with key business drivers a hit or miss proposition, which makes for some rather unhappy business stakeholders and customers. It also bleeds energy and focus away from the delivery team, who can’t see a unifying purpose in the stories that they deliver.
In this presentation, you’ll learn why it's critical to start with the end in mind, why a coherent and compelling product vision makes such a difference and how exactly to go about it. You'll discover proven techniques for creating a product vision, from a product vision box to a vision board, and more!
