Event description

Description

It’s hard to know where to start, but we need to take a step back and set up a clear and simple process that clarifies goals, balances competing for priorities and promotes cross-functional collaboration. This is the key to get you out of the weeds and focused on what matters: figuring out how to make your product more valuable.

New and growing teams often struggle in setting up an efficient process to get their products out the door. It seems like there are a million things going on. Prioritizing what to build from a huge backlog, balancing bug fixing and technical debt with new feature work, dealing with stakeholders, constant interruptions, and endless meetings!


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
This Masterclass will be a combination of lectures on best practices, exercises, and group discussions. The goal is to give you tools that help you:

  • Balance multiple, competing priorities
  • Organize your roadmap and backlog
  • Reduce the time spent on writing specs
  • Collaborate and create alignment with stakeholders
  • Communicate your goals and progress with the rest of the company


WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This workshop is ideal - but not exclusively - for:

  • Product Managers/Owners who are struggling to get out of the day-to-day firefighting, or are new to the job
  • Founders/CEOs who are still wearing the product lead hat and want to improve their process
  • Tech Leads/CTOs who are doubling as PM/PO and want to create a better relationship with other stakeholders
