Ever been in a situation when the Product Manager comes and asks for “a couple of small changes that are high priority” and the team says “They’re kind of big. Tell us what you really want from all this! ”. “I want it all! As soon as possible.”.
There are many directions one can go from here. One can work harder or work smarter. While you probably know ways to work harder, let’s explore ways to work smarter.
This talk will bring some techniques that have proven to provide good results in these situations. The majority of these techniques comes from the Product Management point of view. How do we work with customers to understand their needs and desired outcomes? How do we prioritize when a lot of things seem urgent? How do we create small experiments to validate our ideas? You will also hear about "Learning releases" and how they help us gather data we need to make decisions along the way to "Earning releases". Of course, to do all of this, a strong technical backbone and a lot of collaboration is foundational. We will touch on these two areas as well. 
You will see a lot of examples that will help you not only learn a new technique, but also understand how to take them to your team right away.
At the end, using these techniques will bring customers, team and product manager together on the stage, singing in harmony!
