When we talk about products in agile, we typically think of software. But any product or service can benefit from agile. If you are struggling to make that mental shift from software products to delivering a customer-focused service, this is the session for you. Tricia Bailey and John Eisenschmidt will show how to use agile to establish a coaching office and lead your transformation by "sipping your own agile champagne." Learn how to use product definition tools and practices, sprinkle agile principles throughout, and cultivate healthy, self-organizing teams.
