PASSIONATE PRODUCT OWNERSHIP
Passionate Product Ownership goes beyond the standard 2-day course, to an experience that will expose you to new ways of thinking and working. You'll leave with tools that help you make better choices about what software to build, and ways to plan and execute software delivery that speeds learning and time to market.
What's taught in Passionate Product Ownership is based on the underlying philosophy that you should:
Judge the success of your process based on the satisfaction of your users and customers with your product.
You'll learn new concepts and practices!
This course covers concepts and practices you won't find in other courses such as:
Using a team-based approach to product ownership.
Effective collaboration and facilitation skills including techniques for shared problem solving and creating shared ownership.
User-centric practices from the user experience design communities to envision the software from the user's perspective.
Outcome-centric design and planning to maximum benefit from the minimum amount of software built.
Emphasis on product discovery to learn quickly and collaboratively what should be built. You'll learn how to structure and facilitate an initial discovery or "sprint 0" phase to build your backlog and plan incremental releases.
Design thinking approaches that emphasize problem understanding, ideation, iteration and plans that maximize learning and feedback.
Innovative emergent best practices in agile product design including:
- User story mapping.
- Pragmatic personas.
- Design studio.
- Paper prototyping.
- Lightweight usability testing.
You'll take away material that helps you keep learning:
In two days you'll be exposed to a huge number of concepts and practices, but as you start to make use of them you'll need more. Printed articles, handouts, quick-reference guides and a great book on product management help you continue learning long after the class.
Take-home material includes:
- Electronic access to slides and articles used in the training and 190 pages of supporting handouts giving full description and advanced discussion on concepts and practices learned.
- Quick reference guides that distil practices to a single 2-sided page of simple instruction.
- A copy of Marty Cagan's Inspired: How to Create Products Customers Love - 5-star reviews on Amazon.com since its release in 2008.
