Blending Product Discovery and Product Delivery
More and more organizations are realizing that while they are getting more done, they are not necessarily getting more value. More code does not mean more product and more product does not mean more market share. According to David Hussman, we need to shift our focus toward a balanced investment in discovery and delivery without going back to gathering big requirements up front. To accomplish this, we need to embrace new discovery metaphors and practices. David draws on his years of experience working with product managers, heads of product, and product owners as he introduces ideas like mapping teams to product, product discovery cadence that feeds a product delivery cadence, how to learn outside the code, and when it is essential to learn in the code. If you are looking for a post-agile gem, drop in and be ready to move on, building on the past success of agile methods while looking toward a future where product learning is valued over process worship.
