You are in charge of building a system, creating a new product release, or any other complex business project. Traditionally, you would hand this undertaking over to a trained project manager to run for you. You would then wait and hope for the best, since over 50% of all projects fail and those that succeed deliver products in which 65% of the functionality is rarely or never used. If a project is doomed to fail, can we know it earlier and focus on the top most valuable functionality for the customer?
Scrum provides a way for you to directly and effectively manage the project yourself. Intuitive and lightweight, the Scrum process delivers completed increments of the product at rapid, regular intervals, usually no longer than monthly.
In this course, Daniel Teng will help you together experience the role of product owner in the process turning ideas into product backlog and collaborate with team to get those done in a real case project, applying techniques such as Lean startup, Design Thinking, User Centric Design, Effect Map and Paper Prototyping, Specification by Example, addressing crucial project success factors:
- How to find out the problems these potential customers would like to solve?
- How can we ensure that these ideas can become requirements and forming product backlog?
- How are we going to pick the highest priority items that can be quickly validated with real customer feedback?
- How and when do everyone including real customers, product owners, team get involved in the backlog activities?
