Presentation Abstract:

Agile Product Management and Ownership: Do the Right Things, Not Everything

Agile product people (Product Owners and Product Managers) feel the need to be in all places, all the time, with all people. To succeed, they need to be inventive, yet intensely focused; collaborative, yet decisive; far-sighted, yet detail-oriented. The best product people are strategic—envisioning the product, communicating upstream with business executives, researching the market, and continually planning for delivery of high-value product options. At the same time, they are also tactical—communicating downstream with the delivery team, running product demos, and discussing technical considerations. Talk about a role that requires excellent balance and effective collaboration!

The good news is that it is possible to lighten your load and strengthen your product ecosystem so that you can make space for the right things amidst the clutter of everything. The key is to examine the work of product management and ownership collaboratively. We use an interactive activity identifies the practices and disciplines involved in product work. We explore the strategic and tactical aspects of this work and examine how to use decision-making rules for this work. You leave with new perspectives on ways you can eliminate unnecessary work and strengthen your support system so that you can concentrate on the right things to do instead of trying to do everything.
