When Trying to Figure Out What Is Worth Building Backfires -Stefan Wolpers, Agile on the Beach 2018


Revisit Stefan Wolpers 2018 Agile On The Beach presentation entitled ‘When Trying to Figure Out What Is Worth Building Backfires’.

Stefan asks, who would reject the idea that identifying what is valuable, usable, and feasible is a useless product strategy? Particularly, when resources are scarce, and the competition is breathing down your neck?

So, given that we all agree on the goal, how come then that product discovery is so often plagued by issues that defy common sense?

In this session Stefan takes a dive into various anti-patterns, from ‘we know what to build’ via loving the solution to, ‘engineers are too expensive to talk to call center agents, the BAs can handle that.’
