Webinar Description
Are you delivering software on time, but it doesn’t bring about the anticipated benefits? This happens when a project team fails to solve the right business problem.

During the webinar, you’ll hear:

  • Why starting with a product backlog is probably not a good idea
  • How to avoid the assumed solution
  • How safe-to-fail probes of candidates solutions help you to connect more deeply with your customers or users
  • Why double loop learning is helpful
  • Why re-framing the problem usually gives a better result
  • Seven rules for finding the right problem
