Product Framing Workshop - OKRs, Personas, Storymapping, Oh My

In this hands on workshop, teams (4-5) will use Product Chartering, Personas, Storymapping, and User Journeys along with Experience Tests to explore a product of their choice.

Along the way we will touch on how you blend architecture needs into this as well as chaos engineering - especially if the audience is more technical

The takeaways are hands on approaches to product discovery and how it blends into delivery

 
 

Outline/Structure of the Workshop

Why Product Framing?

What is Product Framing - where does it fit in the value stream

OKRs and Chartering - The north start for our effort

Personas - empathizing with our customers

Mapping and Journeys - what are our options / what is an interesting way to get there / what will we learn?

The angle I always take with mapping and journeys is outcome driven - the map is options and the journey we choose has an outcome we are trying to achieve. Start with outcomes and work backwards, etc.

Learning Outcome

Familiarity with use of product framing techniques, and where they fit, including

  • OKRs / Chartering
  • Personas
  • StoryMapping
  • User Journeys

We will also touch on other uses of maps if there is time.

Target Audience

Product Team, Engineers, Analysts, Product Owners, Test Engineers

    Steve Ropa - Career growth, recognition and continuous learning for software craftspeople

    60 Mins
    Talk
    Beginner

    Over the years, we've talked quite a bit about how to become a craftsman, exploring deeply how to progress from Apprentice to Master. What is often missing is any detail beyond the general thoughts that this is a Good Idea. Steve will share an approach, based on his experience of many years and many development organizations, to learning and career development for your team. This approach goes beyond the general ideas around Craftsmanship, but provides actual concrete areas of development. Unlike a formalized "skills checklist" we will apply a pattern language to help identify a continuum of growth for anyone's long term development.

    We will discuss building understanding and building skills in the following areas:

    Codecraft
    Professional Skills
    Process and Technical Ecosystems
    Workflows
    Tools

    Too much design up front and you are bumping into the design all of the time (and losing time). Not enough design and your system can crumble in reality. How do you blend architecture so you have the right decisions at the right time, and give them enough due dilligence? How do you embrace cloud and microservices and not risk getting into different failure scenarios or overly complicated maintenance and ripple effects?

    In this session we will walk through visualizations that help teams blend product thinking with architecture. Along the way, we will look at microservices and domain modeling as well as chaos engineering and fault tolerance - blending all of these into a context that is consumable by all and gives the right emphasis at the right time.

    Leave this session with simple visualizations and approaches that you can apply immediately to start blending product with architecture, especially if you are looking to run in a cloud world.

    How do you grow a continuously learning organization? If certifications and wikis were enough, organizations would be crushing it. In this session we look at how we learn in complex domains - focusing on tacit vs explicit knowledge; context learning; and growing coaches and teachers.

    This is an extension of our talks on Dojos - immersive learning environments.

    Steve Ropa - Craftsmanship is NOT Expensive

    60 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    Whenever someone wants me to buy something expensive, they tell me to think of it as an investment. Over the years, when a business person heard about Craftsmanship or certain Technical Practices, they immediately heard the same argument about it being an investment. Lets look at it differently. Craftsmanship is not more expensive than "Just Get It Done" even if you ignore the long term investment aspects. By exploring where the technical practices come from, and how best to apply them, we can see that being the best isn't more expensive after all.

    Mike Duskis / Charles Burton - Optimize Your Human/Robot Mix for Ferocity with Confidence

    60 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    Experienced agilists know that if you want to be fierce and move fast, you need confidence that you can charge ahead without leaving a mess behind. Strategically, this means defining the things you already understand so tightly that you can hand them off to robots. With automation guarding your back, you can focus your human energy on conquering new challenges. That’s the theory anyway. In the mess we call real life, most of us struggle to draw the line between human work and robot work, so we frequently end up with frustrated humans chasing ineffective robots.

    In the context of real life on the shop floor, how can we optimize our robot/human mix in a way that frees the most human energy to perform the most human work? In this session, we will approach the question from two perspectives: DevOps and software testing. Both have the same general problem but they bring different needs and difficulties.
