BONUS: How To Help Your Product Owner Define Value, with Vasco Duarte

Merry Christmas, everyone! This is the first of 5 BONUS episodes for this Christmas week, each of these episodes complements one or more modules of the Coach Your Product Owner e-course available at bit.ly/coachyourpo.

In this episode, we delve into one of the crucial aspects of the Product Owner role: defining, measuring, and leveraging Business Value.

Why We Need To Help Product Owners Define Value

We start the episode with an anecdote about training Product Owners. Many of those POs faced the common challenge of delivering from a well-defined, high-pressure backlog, which led them and their teams to “be a slave to the backlog.”

Those PO’s understood during the training, that having a crystal clear definition of value turned the decision-making process into a more straightforward one.

The Importance Of Strategy In Defining Value

Not every company has a crystal-clear strategy. And having a clear strategy is critical to be able to have conversations about what value means for a specific organization. In this episode, we also talk about how we can help PO’s facilitate conversations with key stakeholders to align the product with the company’s success metrics.

Translate the Product’s Strategic Goal into a Concrete Measurable Goal

Eventually, once the strategy for the organization, and the product are clear, we need to turn the company’s strategy into tangible, measurable goals for the product. In this episode, we walk through an example, we learn about Luke, the Scrum Master, assisting Leya, the ambitious PO, in reducing call center wait times through strategic experiments.

Key Steps:

  1. Understand Company Strategy
  2. Link Product to Strategy and Goals
  3. Define Specific, Measurable Metrics
