For continual value delivery, stakeholders must partner to develop a shared understanding of product needs. How does this partnership gain a focused yet holistic understanding of the highest‐value requirements? How do they effectively plan the project so that the delivery team builds the right product, at the right time? Learn how to go beyond user stories and engage in “structured conversations” to explore and evaluate product needs and clearly identify what to build and when. You’ll use these conversations to fuel your daily work, refine your product backlog, and efficiently plan, analyze, and allocate product needs to allocate them to delivery cycles.
