About the Book
Have you ever looked at a requirement document that’s 50 plus pages long and wondered if there was an easier way to communicate? Or have you ever received a 1 liner story without any context and thought “huh?”.
We have and in our years of work in traditional waterfall organisations and newer agile organisations the trend continues. Very seldom is the sweet spot in the middle achieved. In every single case the path to the sweet spot started with conversations.
Over the last 3 years we have developed a number of workshops to help people start these conversation. The workshops are aimed at different stakeholders ranging from business people, to Product Owners and teams. This book is a collection of some of those workshops and can be used to help improve the way you think about and communicate agile requirements.
Although we talk about Product Owners, this book isn't just for Scrum teams. You can apply most of the lessons in here to any project you are on. We have used these techniques and ideas for renovating houses, redesigning websites and even writing this book!
