 Applying What We’ve Learned 15
  16. 16. Example 1 I work at a well established tech company. We no longer rely on outside funding and are profitable. We are concerned that we are releasing less, leading to not getting learnings quickly, and ultimately stifling our ability to innovate. Senior leadership has provided me a rockstar team to stop this slide and start pumping out MVPs consistently. 16 © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 What methodology could I implement?
  17. 17. 17 © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 I work in the medical insurance industry. My product involves medical records and is governed by HIPAA. When building products, I must ensure every single aspect is approved before we get started to ensure HIPAA compliance. The product cannot change after I start to build, due to losing compliance status. Example 2 What methodology could I implement?
  18. 18. I am a newer product manager at a pretty well established start up.
 I have a team of five to seven developers who are a mixed bunch in terms of maturity and skill level. I would like to instill some sort of 
 agile methodology, but want to ensure it is not too disruptive 
 to our processes. 18 © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 Example 3 What methodology could I implement?
  19. 19. I am a senior manager at a successful tech company. I think our product is great, as well as the talent we have in our organization. I want to empower the individual teams to make decisions in a decentralized manner so that we can innovate even faster. 19 © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 Example 4 What methodology could I implement?
  20. 20. I am a manager outside of the tech portion of my organization. I love how quickly the tech teams release products and innovate for the company, and I would love to bring that culture to my side of the business. I know that technology processes can seem intimidating, so I want to ensure it’s lightweight and accessible. 20 © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 Example 5 What methodology could I implement?
  21. 21. We are a medium sized tech company with under 1000 employees. We are very comfortable with agile principles, and want more freedom for product teams to build new features, but need releases to go out at a reliable cadence. 21 © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 Example 6 What methodology could I implement?

 Review 22
  23. 23. © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 23 Agile fits all different types of appetites
  24. 24. © BETHANY PAGELS- MINOR 2018 24 Agile fits all different types of appetites ✓ Any organization/team can run some flavor of agile ✓ Company and team maturity, team talent and team size should dictate which type of agile would work best ✓ Experiment ✓ Process should not inhibit autonomy ✓ Waste is the enemy
