Deliver Double the Value in Half the Time - PCA13 - PCATX

1,232 views

Published on

64% of product features built in software development are rarely or never used. Too many teams focus on increasing the amount of output, as opposed to focusing on delivering the most value with the least amount of output. In this interactive presentation, David Hawks will share the key factors that sabotage product success and what to do about it. Learn practical tools and techniques that accelerate learning throughout the product development cycle to deliver double the value in half the time.

Presented at ProductCamp Austin 13 on August 2nd, 2014

David Hawks is a Certified Scrum Coach and Certified Scrum Trainer. David guides software organizations to deliver innovative products faster. David brings his broad experience working with Fortune 50 companies and early stage startups to challenge organizations to think differently about how they build products.
