One of our primary responsibilities as product people is to create shared understanding with the people we work with. It’s critical to achieve shared understanding about the market, company goals, product vision, product requirements and of course the customers’ problems. In addition, you need to achieve shared understanding with many different people: developers, designers, executives, marketers, etc. Join us at our May meeting as we explore new and better ways of achieving shared understanding with your teams and stakeholders. We will have two speakers from The Valley who will share different techniques for getting shared understanding with product teams.
Linda Adams leads product for Choice Hotels’ mobile and emerging channels. Linda will share how she collaborated with Choice’s mobile product development teams to create user story guidelines that have improved shared understanding and team efficiency.
