This experiential simulation takes participants through an entire release from the point of view of the product owner. You’ll have a team. You’ll have a product. You’ll have stakeholders who demand more and more! The team wants to focus on technical debt. The executives want to focus on the latest initiative. Then the market shifts! Stakeholders want to know when they are going to get their stuff. But the team’s output isn’t reliable. There are risks and dependencies to manage. Lions! And tigers! And bears! Oh my!
Through experience, reflection, and adaptation, participants will learn new, and better, ways to address the myriad of challenges that a product owner faces guiding a product through its development. This simulation also helps executives and other stakeholders understand what product owners do, and how to better work with them to achieve strategic goals.
