• Product Owner - Jan “Super Powers of Product Ownership”

    South University, Tampa

    The Tampa Bay Product Owner Group is an established community of practice that helps Agile Product leaders network and grow. We are a Scrum Alliance registered user group and are partially funded by Agile Alliance. _______________________ Presentation ________________________ Title: Super Powers of Product Ownership: Validating Value Delivery and Knowing When It Will Happen. Would you gamble your yearly salary on a coin flip? Often times we bet larger sums of our companies’ money without even knowing we have such slim odds. Let science save the day! See how empiricism helps us with a practical example of advanced forecasting tools provide better visibility into not just when but also how certain we can be about when we’ll be done. We are not done when an increment is delivered to the market. We need to know how much value was delivered and if it met our expectations. In other words we need a feedback loop after delivery occurs. Without this confirmation it is like driving with your eyes closed. You are going to get somewhere, but probably not the place you want to be. Jeff Bubolz is a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org as well as a speaker, trainer, and agile coach. He has been a Product Owner, Scrum Master and Development Team member. He worked with enterprise companies to small start-ups. While working with many teams across many companies he has found that most problems are not technology problems, but are organizational structure, process, and people problems. As a speaker, Jeff brings storytelling, a broad array of experience, and collaborative approach to public speaking. ____________________ Sponsoring is a great way to connect with leadership and practitioners and get to know the talent in our community.
