We should have a value management team that works to flesh out the product backlog. This includes defining success criteria and the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Product vision If the product vision is unclear its worth investing time now to pin it down. If the vision needs a bit of panel beating we can accommodate these collaborations in the initiate phase. It’s important for value management team to sell and get buy-in on the vision.
As the vision gets clearer write it down and stick it up where people cannot miss it. This will be the creed by which the project team lives and breathes by for the next few months. Fleshing out high level capabilities and MVP Originating from the concept phase is the high level capability list. From this list of features we perform a user story map workshop where we map high level capabilities as user interactions. Stakeholders slot in user stories below the high level capabilities.
