What is Your Product?

December 2, 2020
To be product-aligned and customer-focused, everyone in your product ecosystem needs to agree on the answer to the question, “What is Your Product?” Many organizations don’t have clarity about how they define a product or products. There is ambiguity and disagreement on the answer, defining the product too narrowly or confusing product with product line or even company with product.  Not understanding what “the product” is, can lead to slow response to changing customer and market needs and less than satisfying product outcomes. Misalignment over the definition of the product thwarts efforts to scale agile product development and causes a plethora of organizational and communication woes.

A Home for Product Goal, Definition of Done, and Sprint Goal

November 19, 2020
In the 2020 Version of the Scrum Guide, the commitments were introduced for each artifact. These then became an element of Scrum; in that they need to be used to gain the maximum value that the Scrum Framework offers. They were always part of a Professional Scrum approach, now there is a clear connection of these commitments to the artifacts. They increase transparency, and the focussed delivery of Value.
