Early in the agile movement, large technology challenges were often given to alchemist like wizards we called "Architects". They were essential, and sometimes helpful, but also hard to find and sometimes a single point of failure. Experimentation taught many of us the finding a new wizard was not the answer. Instead, the answer was to break down large problems into smaller problems distributed to a collection of builders who collectively and collaboratively took ownership of the system and its architecture.
Today, we have the same opportunity in the product space. Many companies are finding success by what I would like to discuss as "dynamic product discovery". To explore this topic, we can talk about who is needed for product discovery, how often is product discovery helpful, how can we blend product discovery and product delivery into a fluid cadence where product leaders work in one of both tracks, or dynamically float between the two.
Please show up ready to challenge the status quo and explore our new options around product learning, product discovery and the essential need to scale product learning in large systems, especially in IT shops where product and service may be playing second fiddle to customers and interactions.

David Hussman

Founder, DevJam
I split my time between leading DevJam and coaching at client sites. My coaching ranges from small teams to large enterprises and entails working with teams, programs and leadership groups. Some days I am doing discovery work, teaching product thinking and agile design and augmenting real agility with user centered design and user experience tools. Other days I am deep in the delivery space helping teams adapt agile methods to meet their needs within their context, working on lean planning, test driven and the many other tools that help teams learn from delivery. | | I also work with many leadership groups, helping them use the evidence produced by agile methods to answer the difficult questions they face while trying to pivot towards the most real value for their company and their products. I am pragmatically focused on producing evidence of success, and I have very little concern about how people are "doing the process" and instead steer people towards "how well they are doing" with process as a tool and not a goal. | | Back at home, at DevJam Studios, we coach, teach and build software products. Working in domains like digital biometrics, medical, government, legal, security, financial, retail, and education (to name a few) has grown a substantial pragmatism around using agile methods as tools focused on product and business goals. Whether we are building our own products, building products for others, or coaching companies of all sizes and shapes around the globe, we believe that producing products which help others, and helping others to learn to better produce products are the real and valuable goals we want to achieve. | | If you are looking for more information about DevJam coaching, education or product development, check out our website...
