How to get more value out of User Stories

Gojko Adzic

Overview

Have you struggled to split user stories into small but valuable chunks? Do you have problems prioritising stories or getting a commitment from business stakeholders on what they want to achieve? Do you have issues deciding when a story is done or how many other stories you really need to achieve a business objective? Are you managing large amounts of stories that are problematic to estimate, prioritise or plan for? If so, join this interactive workshop and bring your product owners and business sponsors to learn how to get the most out of user stories. This workshop is for people who want to learn several effective ways that industry-leading teams apply to make their user stories much more effective. Come to learn how to ensure that things coming into your work stream are defined well, split to be small enough but valuable, and achieve the big benefits of adaptive planning and that you can expect from great user stories.

You will learn...

This is a brand new seminar based on our books Fifty Quick Ideas To Improve Your User Stories, Impact Mapping and years of experience helping teams deliver better software. After the workshop, you will know how to:

  • Fight a huge backlog with 500 crap stories
  • Prioritise with multiple competing stakeholders
  • Avoid a user story stream of consciousness and create a big picture for prioritisation
  • Establish a good reporting structure on outcomes rather than just monitoring velocity and activity
  • Get agreement from the whole team and the business sponsors about which user stories are useful and which are just noise
  • Enable business sponsors to benefit from flexible scope and avoid water-scrum-fall
  • Effectively prioritise based on value
  • Avoid pet features
  • Run impact mapping sessions
  • Split the ‘unsplittable’ stories, and ensure that work items are small but actually still valuable
  • Avoid getting stuck in ‘technical stories’
  • Run user story mapping sessions

How to succeed as a Product Owner

Vasco Duarte

Scroll to top

Overview

Product Owners face increasing challenges. Many companies future depends on the quality of the work of Product Owners. Product Owners act as market specialists (often paired with Product Managers), as translators that bring the understanding to the teams and as innovation catalysts. Those are just some of the responsibilities that Product Owners face on a daily basis. In this full-day workshop we will review some tools to cover each of those responsibilities. These tools will focus on:
  • Product Owner self-assessment as a tool for continuous improvement
  • Understanding the market from your customers point of view (Lean Startup, Jobs to be done and Vision are some of the topics we cover)
  • Helping teams focus on high-value work (Flexible requirements management framework, stories as inventory, helping R&D speed up)
  • How to measure product success: Metrics that actually help Product Owners make decisions

You will learn...

In this workshop we will cover several topics with hands-on exercises. The participants will get a set of thinking and practical tools that they can apply in their work immediately after the workshop. Participants will be able to:

  • Define what is the most valuable work for their products and their teams
  • Measure product success in a manner that facilitates decision making
  • Use specific tools to discover and manage product scope
  • Apply a self-assessment tool that fosters personal growth by focusing on certain key knowledge areas.

Root Cause Analysis and Kaizen

Jim Benson

Scroll to top

Overview

Kanban requires solving problems and continuous improvement. This lecture discusses how we spot an issue on a kanban, how we decide it requires correction, what the tools are from Lean to document an issue, and how we almost always select the wrong root causes due to various cognitive biases. This section introduces problem solving and impediments to finding the right solution. Here attendees will learn about the Plan / Do / Study / Adjust (PDSA) cycle.

Agenda

  1. Root Cause Analysis – What is it?
  2. Plan / Do / Study / Adjust (PDSA) cycle
  3. The Modus RCA Process
