Act I: For the first act, we introduce a product owner or manager who would like feedback from our Product Council about a specific product challenge. Our Product Council consists of three experienced product owners who serve as an anchor for the ensuing conversations.
Act II: The second act introduces a second business who’s product owner is given an opportunity to showcase a particular product or feature they feel their team has executed particularly well or solved in a unique way.
