SESSION PROPOSAL: The Princess Bride’s 'Guide to Product Management'

‘You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means’…Sound familiar? 

Not just a quote from, what we postulate, is one of the greatest movies of all time, but also a poignant statement of a common everyday occurrence when relaying requirements, acceptance criteria, and even your product vision amongst members of the team. One say, almost as dangerous as…betting against a Sicilian when death is on the line?

Join us for an active, and undoubtedly lively, discussion of how this can quickly lead us to near, if not complete, destruction – and learn tips, tricks, and best practices for how we can ensure that ‘these words’ mean the same to everyone on the team and that we have a shared understanding of the goal and desired outcomes.
