#9. The Value of Product Goals with Roman Pichler
Last year, the Scrum Guide got updated. One of those updates has been the addition of the Product Goal. How do Product Goals relate to the Product Vision or the Sprint Goals. And how can we still distinguish this in our teams with all the different terminology without causing widespread confusion?
Product development legend Roman Pichler is here to share his vision on this.
What you’ll discover in this show:
- Product Goals are goals on the mid-term, six months out from now
- Product Vision and Goals need to be supported by the environment of the team, it’s not just the goal of the Product Owner
- Cascading goals makes it easier and more tangible for teams to create value
