Jen Kalz is Speaking at IIBA-Minneapolis, St. Paul PDD

 
Date: Apr 18 - Apr 18
Location: Doubletree Hotel in Bloomington, MN 7800 Normandale Boulevard Bloomington, MN 55439
Jennifer Kalz, CBAP, CUA, CSM is presenting "Getting Down to the Bone – Techniques to Define the Agile MVP" at the 2019 IIBA MSP Chapter Professional Development Day.

Jennifer is a seasoned Business Analyst with over 10 years of IT experience applying “outside the box” creative and analytical thinking in order to deliver business solutions. She has a solid track record in recommending and leading the delivery of a vast array of technical and non-technical solutions that increase productivity and efficiency and support organizational strategic goals. Jennifer is a Managing Consultant at Skyline Technologies. Her presentations have been received at the WI Business Analysis Development Day, BA World Chicago, ChiBADD, and various IIBA Chapters in the Midwest.

The way to understand if a product provides value is to get a working solution in front of end users, ASAP. How do you do this without stakeholders asking for everything up front; especially with the mentality there won’t be “phase 2”? How do you help Product Owners know there is enough value to release for more feedback? In this session, Jennifer works through techniques BAs can use to assist POs through their decision making of MVP features.

Participants will learn to:
  • Identify ways to initially focus on MVP through a Product Backlog grooming or mapping session.
  • Use various techniques to dive further down into a backlog to identify MVP items.
  • Learn phrases and messaging that will aid in thoughtful decision making by product owners to identify MVP for features and issues.
