Scrum Guide’s Product Goal

Recorded by Lance Kind

Dave Prior and Lance Kind discuss a new item from the Scrum Guide: Product Goal. Listen in while Dave teaches Lance what the product goal is, ideates on how to implement, and debates as to the value product goal provides. As a bonus, Dave and Lance: discuss how “real options” relate to product backlogs, that there will be a struggle about where to put backlog items that don’t fit the product goal, and how computers have become like the Tardis.

It’s a fun discussion that anyone who is seeking answers about using product goal will enjoy. We also will fill you in on a few new questions.
You’re welcome. 😀
