6th of July, 2017: Scrum Day Europe, Amsterdam – Talk: “Create products with impact”
Even with great development teams, we sometimes produce mediocre products. Those products might be of excellent technical quality, but do those products solve actual customer’s needs? So what’s worthwhile? Although we try to leave the views of the industrial age behind, and we embrace an agile paradigm, Scrum is quite often simply applied to manage software development as a lineair manufacturing pipeline. Request in, feature out.
Hence the question how we can augment from “good” to “great” products? A product or service with an impact. A product that makes a difference in people’s life. We look at conditions necessary to be able create products with impact. We discuss what kind of thinking is necessary. We look at some tactics, tools and techniques possible to utilise and adopt within a Scrum context. You will see examples of impact maps, roadmaps and visualisations to integrate customer discovery and learning in your product development flow.

17th of October, 2016: Scrum Alliance gathering (Munich) session – The question today isn’t: “Can we build this?’ but, “Should we build this?”
Session Type: Talk
Summary: There are lots of reasons why products fail, but the number one reason remains the fact that we simply build something nobody wants.
“Are we building the right thing? Our end-users can tell if we are building the “right” thing. But sometimes they do not know either. We are dealing with “know unknowns” and “unknown unknowns”.
Get some insight how to create a process of continuous discovery and continuous learning.
Key points of the session:
- Expressing assumptions and declaring hypotheses
- Focus on outcomes the purpose of experiment design, and how to focus on testing the right “things”
- How to create a continuous feedback loop with your end-user
- How to integrate lean startup principles in your agile product development
- How to get validated learning and examples of how to reach product/market fit
- We discuss lean tools and techniques how to value making over analysis and how to value learning over growth.
