Featured Series

Continuous Product Learning:

Story Maps, Customer Journeys and Tools for Validated Learning
Part 1: September 10, Noon-1 p.m. EDT
Part 2: September 17, Noon-1 p.m. EDT

How sure are you that you are "building the right thing?" How often do you validate your assumptions versus simply measuring your progress? While agile methods often help organizations build products faster, many software teams get hyper-focused on points completed over real value delivered – or, more important, learning about customers and validating product ideas. Some people obsess over "backlog grooming," but still produce weak stories that do not provide the context needed for teams and programs to deliver valuable products.
