If you work on a team that produces software, and especially if it’s supposed to be an agile team, do yourself a favor and check out Arguing Agile, the YouTube channel and podcast produced and presented by Tampa Bay’s own Brian Orlando and Om Patel.
On this episode, Brian Orlando and Om Patel talk with Sr. Product Owner Anitra Pavka about her experiences across the software development and agility field – from Web Developer, to Business Analyst, to Scrum Master and Agile Coach, to Product Owner/Manager and beyond. …and BEYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOND!
Anitra has been a regular on Tampa’s tech scene since 2011, and chances are that you’ve seen her at a local event — perhaps at one of our local agile or UX gatherings, or at the Coders, Creatives, and Craft Beer meetup, which she co-organizes. She’s a Senior Product Owner at Deque (pronounced “D-Q”) Systems, creators of the axe line of tools for measuring and monitoring the accessibility of your sites and applications.
You may often see me hanging around Anitra, but there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation: I’m married to her. We met at BarCamp Tampa Bay in 2011, which makes us the prime example of why you should attend tech events here — you never know what’ll happen!
About Agile Podcast
Agile Podcast is Tampa Bay’s own video podcast on all things agile. Host Brian Orlando — often with co-host Om Patel — are joined each episode by a professional in or around the agile space for unscripted conversations about getting work done in an agile way. In one year, they’ve put together almost 60 podcasts, and they’re worth checking out whether you manage or are in an agile team!
I like drawing out my article ideas for the Auth0 Developer Blog before firing up the blog editor and typing. Here’s an example, which I was doodling this morning, which I made at the dealership while my car was being serviced.
Product Management IS Stakeholder Management. Influencing and Negotiating is a big part of the role.
In this session, you will learn modern negotiation techniques applied to Stakeholder Management. This is a fun spin on Stakeholder management using the negotiation techniques Chris Voss outlines in “Never Split the Difference.” We explore modern negotiation techniques, then apply them to real-life scenarios.
We examine Mirroring, Labeling, Getting to Yes, and Open-Ended Questions in realistic Product and Stakeholder scenarios. We think we learn by applying, so this will have an interactive element to it!
