Abstract/Description

**Product Owners**, you get better outcomes when you collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders. You can use structured conversations to collaborate and the **discover the value** your product can deliver.

Are you a Product Owners or a stakeholder? Are you looking for ways to uncover and prioritize your product requirements with effective and efficient conversations? Then join us for the **#DiscoveryDojo**. (Remember, developers are stakeholders too.)

In this hands-on, 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 powerful ways to build shared understanding of product needs.

The first half of this workshop weaves quick teaching moments with coaching dojo circles. You practice your product discovery skills with colleagues in each dojo – **doing**, **facilitating**, **coaching**, **observing** and **providing feedback**.

In the second half of the workshop we will dive deeper into Agile requirements engineering with the **7 Dimensions of Product Value**. We'll also explore how your team's relation to value creation changes as you and your team are able to master each new product skill.

We'll ask for *volunteers* with real product needs to serve as PO for each dojo circle. Vounteers will be rewarded with the best learning experience. **For the optimal learning experience, come prepared to share a *real* product need from your actual backlog.** Naturally not everyone can share a product need publicly, they will work with the volunteer POs.

**Everyone leaves with helpful assets to immediately apply to your product work.**
