David Hussman – Product Over Process

Description: If you are weary of process or a longtime practitioner looking for something more, this session may have the inspiration you seek. Instead of talking about process and Scrum teams, we are going to investigate how team structures, and other structures map to product discovery, product delivery and product learning. We will start with the simple model of one team, one product and progress to the more complex models of one product and many teams and many solutions and many teams (as is the case in a system). Along the way, you will be asked to think about how well your teams are organized to produce and learn about your product, your market, your users and your customers. You will be challenged to examine if you have gone past getting work done and into taking your customers on journeys they might not have yet imagined. You will be asked to map your product to team(s) instead of simply talking about Scrum or SAFe or < insert the next big process fad here >.
