Analysis Techniques for Product Owners LiveLessons is a video training course providing methods for understanding project stakeholders, the organizational context in which a project is occurring, the need a project is trying to satisfy, how to build a shared understanding of the solution the project is delivering, and how to organize and persist solution information, all while knowing when to apply the techniques covered.
Demos exist primarily to get feedback from your stakeholders when you can’t get feedback from them during the course of a sprint. In this post, I explore a set of questions I frequently get regarding demos and answer them from a product ownership perspective.
A quick summary of the Agile2015 sessions that I got the most out of. These sessions tended to discuss fairly simple techniques but did a deep enough dive that I was able to get some good nuggets out of them. A few of these sessions prompted some ideas that I’ll explore in more depth a bit later.
Agile2015 is next week in Washington DC so I thought I’d share some ideas for getting the most out of the conference.
Product ownership is all about determining the right things to build and utilizes activities from product management, business analysis, and user experience. This post provides my guesses at the collections of activities from each of those fields to identify product ownership activities and asks you if I’m even close.
Recently, a friend of mine who is an agile coach was asked about powerful questions that a product owner could use when working with their team to discover acceptance criteria. She asked me for my thoughts, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to answer a question with more questions.
Acceptance criteria are the conditions that a solution must satisfy to be accepted by a user, a customer, or, in the case of system-level functionality, the consuming system. They are also a set of statements, each with a clear pass/fail result, that specify both functional and nonfunctional requirements and are applicable at a variety of levels (feature and user stories).
Here is a list of blogs and newsletters that I go to for frequent insights into areas of product ownership. Take a look and then share some of your favorites.
