Customers are committed to ensuring products are done and perfect, but is there really such a thing? Life itself is iterative, so how can PO's help stakeholders understand this concept with projects?
Ideas for Action/Next Steps:
- Use games (such as penny factory) to demonstrate that big things take time
- Embrace change from stakeholders
- Introduce releases/agreement on MVPs
- IKIWISI = I'll know it when I see it (usually describes how stakeholders feel)
- Establish an MOU = memorandum of understanding
- Measure lead time or the time it takes to complete project from when it's thought of until it is in production.
- MVP = minimum viable product (establish MVP with stakeholder)
- Get support from company leadership
- Build a sense of safety among stakeholders from the top down
- Get strong support from your scrum master
- Find ways to reduce stakeholder anxiety/fear
- Deliver constantly - deliver MVPs
