Agile Words vs Agile Practices

Aug 2, 2016 · Cary, United States of America

Leslie Hobbs’ initial introduction to Product Management occurred when she traded cotton futures and options in Arizona. After walking about 100,000 acres of cotton (a 1/4 of Arizona's total production from[masked]) and designing a system to evaluate unsold cotton inventory against multi-million dollar operating loans she moved into healthcare software where she (incorrectly assumed) things would be a little less “wild west”.
As a student of Intuit’s Innovation Catalyst and Design4Delight programs she gained exposure to the tenants of Agile (people before process), Lean (hypothesize, learn, iterate), and Design Thinking (fall in love with the problem before moving on to the solution).
Leslie’s passion is acquiring market insights gained via customer observation and day-dreaming to insure products don’t just meet the customer’s needs, but also provide moments of delight. She’s also pretty passionate about bringing the full development team along for the ride by actually having them meet customers and see first hand a customer’s frustration with the product.
Tonight she’ll walk us through the key elements of an agile product cycle and examine from a POs viewpoint why using stories with acceptance criteria, participating in team grooming, measuring velocity, spending time on planning, including a step for acceptance by a PO, and the benefits of "Test/Learn/Iterate" may scare the heck out of a team and cause them to cling to Agile Words vs swimming deep into Agile Practices.
