Product Agility

Ben Maynard

The world of Product Discovery and Creation is becoming increasingly challenging due to mistakes and missed opportunities that are prevalent in agile teams, large-scale Scrum and all other agile frameworks. History has shown that when organisations try and scale their product development to more than one cross-functional team, mistakes are made that cut short many chances of getting all possible benefits.

The route of this for many is the need for more attention paid to the incredible advancements in Product Management driven by hordes of professional Product People who prove that making their customers happier is not a pipe dream but a hard and fast reality.

This podcast exists to explore all topics related to Product and Agility and Coaching.

How do you marry the agile principles with Product discovery?

Is it really possible to have hundreds of cross-functional teams (or Product Teams)  all working from an effectively prioritised single Product Backlog and a dedicated Product Owner?

How can you embrace continuous improvement and empirical process control for your product, people and processes?

Ever wondered how to overcome the problems people face when trying to scale the Product Owner role and how it relates to Product Management and Product Teams?

Baffled by how to define a product in such a way that enables Feature Teams (aka Product Teams) and why doing wrong means you will only ever be stuck with technical teams?

Scrum Teams are not compatible with modern product management techniques.

Want to know what Product Focus means and how the right focus makes creating a shippable product less painful?

Need to get your head around how to blend modern product management techniques with Sprint Planning and Sprint Reviews to achieve Product Increments that cover the entire product?

This podcast's original focus was on Scaling Scrum vs Single-Team Scrum and how organisations can reap the benefits of Scrum when working on a larger product but still keeping a single product backlog. We found many Product People liked what we said, and then the penny dropped. This isn't a podcast about scaling Scrum or the limitations of single-team Scrum.

This podcast is for Product People & agile advocates who coach or get their hands dirty with Product creation.

We promise there is no Taboo topic that we will not explore on your behalf.

We aim to transcend the conversations about a single team, Daily Scrums, Scrum Masters and the double-diamond and bring everyone together into responsible teams dedicated to working on the entire product to make their customers happier and their lives more fulfilling.

Come and join us on our improvement towards perfection, and give us your feedback (we have a strong customer focus, too), and who knows, perhaps we will discover the magic wand that we can wave over all the broken agile and sudo-products to create a more resilient and adaptable future by bringing the worlds of Product, Agility and coaching together.

This podcast has the conversations and insights you need.

In recent times, criticising all things Agile has almost become trendy for developers, software/platform Engineers and other IT professionals. The labelling of agile as “uffy” is something that is slowly gaining popularity.In a technological ecosystem that prioritizes building, testing, and deploying code over Agile methods and events, this paper explores how Agile professionals, senior leadership teams, and Lean-Agile Centres of Excellence can address challenges posed by Agile scepticism. Case studies show that focusing on empiricism's pillars—Transparency, Inspection, and Adaptation—improves end-to-end product delivery for developers, software, and DevOps engineers. This approach, termed agile agnosticism, emphasizes optimizing product delivery while avoiding Agile jargon, certifications, titles, and workplace politics.Episode Highlights:- Agile Agnosticism: Understand how to implement Agile practices without being tied to specific frameworks.- Practical Applications: Learn how focusing on the pillars of empiricism can enhance product delivery.- Overcoming Scepticism: Discover strategies to address and mitigate Agile scepticism within your teams.If you enjoy the show, please leave a review!Use code PRODUCTAGILITY24 for 15% off training courses at Sheev.Sheev - https://www.sheev.co.ukHost Bio Ben is a seasoned expert in product agility coaching, unleashing the potential of people and products.

As digital becomes a fundamental part of most business opportunities, agile approaches must better align with the whole organization, not just the software teams. That requires a change.

But even when considered holistically, something is missing. “The what”.In this talk, Dave West, CEO of Scrum.org, discusses the impact of the product operating model and how, when combined with a holistic, systemic approach to organizational change, it provides the true north to enterprise agility. Dave will discuss the product operating model and introduce an approach to getting its introduction. Episode Highlights:- Product Operating Model: Understand the concept and importance of a product operating model in achieving enterprise agility.- Holistic Approach: Learn how a systemic approach to organisational change can drive better alignment and value delivery.- Practical Insights: Gain insights into real-world applications and strategies for implementing a product operating model in your organization.If you enjoy the show, please leave a review!Use code PRODUCTAGILITY24 for 15% off training courses at Sheev.Sheev - https://www.sheev.co.ukHost Bio Ben is a seasoned expert in product agility coaching, unleashing the potential of people and products.
