These days, it seems like every software company has some agile or agile-ish teams. But how do you carry agile values beyond the team and into the business prioritization process? Over the last few years, Iâ€™ve worked with a group of stakeholders from VPs to support representatives to form a Product Council team that guides our development process. We ship software frequently (every week) and so this process is key for keeping a large number of stakeholders engaged in close contact with the delivery team. The Product Council consolidates feedback, develops the roadmap, and maintains stakeholder buy-in for a continuously evolving plan. In this workshop, iâ€™ll introduce two different Product Council structures and the pros and cons of each. Weâ€™ll also talk about voting methods, managing â€˜persistentâ€™ stakeholders, using lightweight business cases to avoid waste, and whether your Product Council should be a democracy or an advisory team.
