Abstract/Description

As a Product Owner, you get better outcomes when you collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders to transparently discover the value your product can deliver. This helps you make the best decisions and build healthy teams. As a Product Owner, you also know this essential discovery work helps your team stay focused, engaged, and motivated.

Are you seeking ways to efficiently and effectively converse about your product requirements? Then join us for the #DiscoveryDojo.

In this interactive session you experience the power of structured conversations that engage stakeholders as product partners, explore product options, and hunt value. You learn essential skills through deliberate practice so you, your customers, and your team members can experience rich, efficient and powerful ways to build a shared understanding of product needs.

The session weaves quick teaching moments with coaching dojo circles. You practice with colleagues in each dojo – doing, facilitating, coaching, observing and providing feedback. We will ask for volunteers to serve as PO for their dojo circle. For an optimal learning experience, come prepared to share a real product need from your backlog. We will supply dojo circles with a case study, if needed.

You leave with helpful assets to immediately apply to your product work.
