Points Don't Mean Prizes

242 views

Published on

Are you sick of seeing your team treated as a sausage machine for turning user stories into code? Can your developers only talk about how long something will take, or how exactly it will be built?

In this session, I’ll explore how to get your team focused on delivering customer value instead by:

• asking questions that refine stories to deliver value more effectively, rather than estimating story points and technical tasks
• building and refining backlogs around customer journeys, rather than breaking down epics into prioritised lists of stories
• creating a culture of continuous discovery and experimentation, rather than delivering a fixed roadmap of features

This session directly addresses some common problems tech leads face in managing and estimating product backlogs. We’re giving specific methods that tech leads can take back to their teams to start dealing with those problems. More people are having to manage “non technical” discussions about customer value and this session offers a framework to help with those discussions.
