All I Want for Christmas as a Product Owner
Reflections from 10 Years in the Software Industry
Welcome to the last meetup in 2023! Every end depicts new beginnings, so we decided to prepare an agile list of wishes from the perspective of a Product Owner, recall good and bad times, and mark some new goals for the next year.
In an attempt to satisfy some procedures, Product Owners sometimes forget that the most important thing is to provide value to the customer or user, but not to reach some quantitative targets, follow strict forms in writing user stories, or worry about team organisation.
In this meetup, we will discuss some of the biggest anti-patterns our amazing speaker, Petar Ljubić, has faced (and is still facing) during his 10 years of working in the software industry. According to his valuable insights, we created a wish list that can be transformed into a powerful set of goals.
At the core of any Product Owner’s wish list is a strong set of tools. In the digital realm, innovation is our lifeblood, and we are hoping for a toolkit that not only keeps pace with technological shifts but propels us ahead.
Collaboration is the cornerstone of success in our interconnected industry. Imagine a toolkit that streamlines global collaboration seamlessly.
In an era where geographical boundaries are blurred, the ability to work efficiently across diverse teams is paramount. Let’s unwrap solutions that facilitate this global synergy.
As we navigate through the complexities of the market, may our data-driven insights be as sharp as a well-honed tool guiding us to success. In a rapidly evolving industry, the pursuit of knowledge is unending.
This season, we yearn for opportunities to expand our skills. A continuous learning platform that keeps our teams ahead of the curve, adapting to the evolving landscape, would be a priceless addition to our professional toolkit.
Agility is not a buzzword; it’s a necessity. Imagine a workplace where agility is not an afterthought but woven into the fabric of our operations. May our teams be as adaptable and responsive as the software we craft, navigating change with finesse.
As the year draws to a close, we find ourselves reflecting on hundreds of days immersed in the dynamic world of software. With the holiday season upon us, it’s a fitting time to share some reflections and aspirations from the trenches of product ownership. Join us on December 7th, online at 6:30 p.m.
We are grateful for the experiences, challenges, and victories that have shaped this year. Here’s to a new one filled with groundbreaking solutions, collaborative endeavours, inventive strategies, and a toolkit that equips us for whatever lies ahead. Same time, same place — see you on the first Thursday of December.
