Session Abstract
The agile community has made great strides in improving the quality and speed of product delivery, evolving toward continuous delivery. What about product discovery? Can we align continuous product delivery with continuous product delivery? It is possible to overcome the immutable fact that product requirements are the source of so much uncertainty and waste? Can we balance satisfying customers with improving product viability through continuous product discovery? 

In my work with many product and engineering organizations, I have learned some key principles and practices that enlighten and energize product discovery. These include setting product context, clarifying outcomes and validation tests, amplifying collaboration, using Structured Conversations with Discovery Boards, and injecting visual models—with and beyond stories and story maps—to build shared understanding of the product. Indeed, agile discovery can accelerate delivery and help build better high-value products.
