Innovate and Invigorate Your Agile Discovery Practices

Agile product discovery is essential for continuous delivery of high-value solutions. Yet teams struggle to collaboratively discover inventive and valuable product requirements. Instead, they become reliant—and at times overly reliant—on user stories, story maps, and personas. While these techniques are useful, they are not sufficient for the complex products most teams wrestle with today. Join Ellen Gottesdiener as she shares how to reach beyond discovery-as-usual. You’ll learn how your team can apply creative ways to enlighten and energize your agile product discovery, to bring requirements to light, explore true value, and build better products.

This event is brought to you by the South Africa chapter of International Institute of Business Analysis™ (IIBA®-SA) and SUGSA (Scrum User Group of South Africa).
