Description

Product Agility through Customer Collaboration

Join us for our third annual event for Agile Product Managers and Product Owners using Open Space Technology.

Together, we will share ways to collaborate and engage with customers so we can develop the products they want, need and love.

The Agile Manifesto identifies customer collaboration as one of the four core values, along with satisfying customers through early and continuous delivery as one of the twelve Agile principles. But how can we truly engage with our customers? Let’s come together to discover techniques that work.

Our Agile Product Open is a volunteer-led event. Together we set the agenda, exchange as peers, build our network, and engage in deep peer-to-peer learning. Whether you’re new to Agile concepts or experienced, this day will renew your energy and passion for product development. Meet your peers to share challenges and solutions.


Benefits of Attending:

  • Learn tools, techniques, practices you can apply right away
  • Form and extend your network of product colleagues
  • Learn ways to build and sustain a customer-focused product mindset
  • Discover ways to collaborate effectively with your customers
  • Identify how to inject a customer-focus into your product work
  • Challenge your thinking as a product leader


We will gather in Boston, Massachusetts near the Public Garden for a full day of collaborative sharing, learning, and skill building.


Topics We Might Explore:

What happens on that day will be determined by us through the process of Open Space. Here are some topics that might be proposed related to our theme:

  • Engaging customers in product discovery (e.g., interviews, design sprints, focus groups, observation)
  • Ways of representing customer needs (e.g., customer journey map, jobs-to-be-done, prototype)
  • Techniques for differentiating customers (e.g, user vs. buyer personas, market segmentation )
  • How to generate actionable user feedback (e.g., value proposition canvas, NPS, exploratory prototypes)
  • And more!
