Closing Keynote for IIBA D.C. BusinessAnalysis Development Day (DCBADD)

Agile product discovery is essential for continuous delivery of high-quality solutions. At the same time, discovery is also one of the most challenging aspects of any project. A wide range of stakeholders must collaboratively explore and agree on inventive and valuable product requirements. To do this, many agile teams rely on user stories, and perhaps a few other techniques, such as story maps and personas.

While these are a good start, they are not sufficient for the complex products most teams wrestle with today.

Ellen reaches beyond discovery-as-usual to highlight creative ways to enlighten and energize your agile product discovery.
