What is our Product?

The first step for large enterprises transitioning toward a product-aligned operating model is to get shared agreement on this simple yet challenging question: "What is our product?" This session will share techniques we have - and are - using to scale lean/agile product development in a large organization.  

One of the biggest strengths—and concurrent challenges—for scaling product development with LeSS is defining what the “product” is. LeSS encourages product development teams to take as wide a view as possible and to use a customer-focused definition.


So, how do you define what your product is? And, how do you define your product in a manner that is collaborative, engaging, and sticky? Based on ongoing work inside a very large global technology infrastructure organization, we share techniques we have and are using to answer this essential question: “What is our Product?”

In this session, Andy and Ellen share techniques for enabling product development leaders and communities to define their product using an “outside-in”, customer-focused perspective -  and do so with a product management mindset. They also share “meta” learning points about using these techniques in facilitated sessions in ways that optimize mutual learning.
