Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The User Story concept was invented almost 20 years ago and it’s time for an update. This is an outdated process that supports an old way of working focused on predictable requirements delivery.
Wouldn’t you like to know much earlier which features are not going to be valued by your market? We need techniques that shorten the feedback loop with customers not stakeholders. We need to prioritize based on riskiest assumptions and iterate quickly through small experiments in order to (in)validate our ideas as fast as possible. This session exposes a new set of practices which support product discovery.
In this session, you will work hands on with new templates that define the work the team needs to execute while starting with the business objective and helping you identify your riskiest assumptions. You will learn some best practices for writing hypothesis and how to turn those into Minimal Viable Experiments.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the difference between Discovery and Delivery
  • How to Write Objectives, Hypotheses and Experiments
  • Learn new techniques for prioritizing work based on riskiest assumptions
