Congratulations--you're a Product Manager who is part of a team that finally achieved many of the benefits promised by agile methods such as Scrum or Kanban--you have a ranking of work items on which the team can focus, you're eliminating waste, and you're getting things done (just about) on time!
There may be an effort to put nearly everyone in your product development team (especially anyone in development) in the system and really crank up the velocity. However, you've noticed that the flow of new ideas coming out of development is not quite what it once was. You say to yourself, "at least it's better than before when they made ALL the decisions. But my competitors are catching up..."
Come to this session to learn about a bold potential solution that will allow for a balance of predictable performance and the generation of innovative ideas from your development team.
