  • Constructing a product outline benefits your understanding of the product
  • A product outline makes it easier to talk about the product
  • It makes you come up with great questions.
  • Constructing a product outline will make explicit what is yet unknown
  • Creating the Product Outline is a starting point - its a piece of living documentation

Constructing a product outline will improve your understanding of the product, will improve communication with your collegues and will make you come up with the best questions!

Do you recognize this? You're new to a team, and you quickly need to get a grasp of the product that is being build. Or, you and your teammates keep forgetting to keep specific components in mind when estimating the new user stories? When working in an Agile Team, the need is there to get up to speed fast.

The best way to do this is to get the information from your teammembers. But where to start? In this talk and workshop, Patrick and Klaartje show you how to collaboratively create a Product Outline, what challenges can come up and what value it can hold. After the workshop, you will be able to construct a Product Outline on any product you are working on. It will improve your shared understanding of the product. You'll be able to show and tell about it- and of course ask all the questions that need to be asked.
