Business liaisons, Product Owners, and analysts: do you work alone? Find your amigos , and engage radical collaboration. If you are a Business Liaison, Product Owner, analyst, or if you are a potential amigo this workshop is for you! 

Radical Collaboration

Bring together innovators with varied backgrounds and viewpoints. Enable breakthrough insights and solutions to emerge from the diversity. (d.school / Institute of Design at Stanford).

You may already have a "friend" falling into the general role of “customer”, you'll find more of your amigos in many varied roles. ( Amigos is a word borrowed from the film title The Three Amigos.  Amigos is a Spanish word meaning: friends, buddies, mates).

Your amigos are currently developing empathy in one, or more, of these areas: 

  • customer value
  • business needs
  • technical ease

That's where you'll find potential amigos. They include developers, testers, managers, and—of course—customers. 

In this highly interactive workshop we'll give you a few new tools which are inspired by some of the design thinking modes and methods out of the Institute of Design at Stanford. Use your new tools to identify amigos and engage them in radical collaboration. We'll practice some methods to help you and your amigosunderstand each other's needs. We'll show you methods to balance your collaboration so that you can balance innovation, quality, prioritisation, architecture, continuous delivery, DevOps, and more. Are more needs emerging? With good amigos, you'll be able to add them to your balance. 

These practical tools will help you meet your amigos and start balancing your concerns collaboratively while you consider  customer valuebusiness needs, and technical ease

We invite you to take these tools home to use, adapt, and master.
