    One of the risks agile organizations face is an over-reliance on a single omni-present and omni-potent Product Owner.  This critical reliance on a fallible Product Owner often results in a lack of clear direction on how and when to "pivot", with IT falling back on their bias, which is to build more and more features.

    In this session, we will explore how lessons and ideas from the Lean Startup movement can be effectively combined with Agile delivery in a 5-step process to drive the right business outcomes. 

    • Holistic Discovery: Assessing key customers, problems & markets
    • Risk-Driven Product Backlog: Challenging & testing your assumptions
    • Exploratory Sprints: Quick, cheap ways to validate your approach
    • Data-Driven Sprint Review: Using data to drive decisions
    • Validating Product Increment: Analyzing & evolving your production system

    Tools and techniques gleaned from the Lean Startup movement will be leveraged to support each of the activities outlined.

    There are so many stories in the market of both successful pivoting and failure cases. Some see Pivoting as the backfire of shallow design and result of not having thought through before launch. However, most see Pivoting as a powerful tool used by wise developers and product owners to retain their acquired customers.

    Whatever may be the reason - its not news that businesses evolve, change and PIVOT. As Alan Spoon says -

    “Pivoting” is a familiar word in the startup world.  When your first business model isn’t working (and this happens more often than not), the CEO and team pivot to plan B.  These are deep breath moments! But pivoting doesn’t necessarily mean desperation.  It can be a tool to discover additional growth--growth you might otherwise have overlooked. Businesses can grow beyond their initial dreams by re-imagining their assets and talents, thinking more broadly about the customer problems they solve, and accessing growth capital to seize the new high ground.

    Keeping this understanding of Pivoting in the background, we at PoolWallet are proud to share our story of launch, growth, not so good growth, how we found our key bottlenecks (Any guesses how many users we interviewed?) and what were our conclusions and how much we decided to pivot. How we validated our thoughts on Pivoting (ever tried talking to an investor?). Basically trying to share with you our launch, less than good response, re-launch, validations we took seriously, feedbacks we kept aside and results of the same. All of this with minimum budget spend.
