Agile Died While You Were Doing Your Standup

Mind the Product

As technology professionals, we have been stuck at metaphorical basecamp for years. We’ve looked at the summit, attempted the various routes other teams have created, and worked hard on dialling in the basics of making sure we have food, water, and shelter.

How do design sprints lead to better product decisions?

DISQO

When we looked back on the 2,000+ experiments that product teams have run on Alpha, we noted some of the challenges that they first had to overcome. Conceptually, most teams already buy into the value of experimentation and user insights, so that part was relatively easy. For corporate product teams in particular, the primary difficulty was in setting aside the time to make experimentation a continuous process.

Go Agile With Market-Driven User Stories

Pragmatic Marketing

Getting a product to the market is hard. You might think that the hardest part is building the product itself, but I think the most challenging part is deciding what to build in the first place.

However, responding to change and breaking big things down into small things is exactly what we must do to deliver products the market will love as early as p
