During my "untraining" of waterfall techniques, I quickly developed a performance neurosis. When people ask me, “Sara, do you do real agile?” I grab a big chuck of my gray hair and say, “Look at me!” When all you’ve been taught is “command and control,” being a Product Manager for an agile team can feel as overwhelming as a Colts fan in the middle of the French Quarter on Superbowl day. Fortunately, there is a way to orchestrate the chaos. I’ve discovered 4 aspects of being an Agile Product Manager that I live and die by. This talk covers everything I would tell myself about agile product management if I could go back in time to my first day on the team.
