The AgileCamp organizers have generously invited me to kick off the Dallas event with a keynote on unpacking business value. We’ll look at things from “the business side” ahead of a full day of Agile and Lean practices.
Software executives and software product managers should focus first on putting the right products into their portfolios — since the primary drivers of market success are identifying the right markets, segments and customer problems to solve.
Most agile improvement is focused at teams, but product failures happen before the first developer is assigned. How do we apply good validation, portfolio strategy and executive-level organizational thinking?
Agile/Scrum, Lean Startup, LeanUX, business model canvasses and growth hacking have expanded our range of tools, methodologies and vocabularies. They don’t specifically call out product management, though. So are product managers obsolete?
Silicon Valley Agile Leadership Network (SV-ALN) is hosting a talk by Rich Mironov on “Scaling Product Management/Owner Teams” on Tuesday, June 10th at LinkedIn (Mountain View). We’ll talk about the overlap and differences between agile product management and product ownership; failure modes at revenue software companies; and some organizational maps for scaling up product teams for large commercial offerings.
An April 4th talk at Cisco: “Product Managers, Product Owners, and Scalable Models for Agile Product Teams.” On large, multi-team commercial products, what skills do various product owners need? How do we connect that back to product-level strategy and priorities?
