AgileSoCal Meeting - Wednesday, April 21st 6:00 PM

Scaling the Product Owner with James Lang


As organizations grow, scaling lean and agile practices becomes the next challenging step. Frameworks do provide us with guidance around scaling development teams. But what about the Product Owner?

Some frameworks provide explicit and prescriptive guidance, while others come up short. So what approach should we take? Maybe it’s a combination of things.

Your Presenter:

James Lang is an Agile Coach, Consultant and the Principal of Emergent Agility, LLC. With over 16 years of experience across a variety of industries, he has guided organizations and teams through the challenges and finer points of adopting Lean and Agile frameworks.

James is also the founder of Backlogs & Brews, a growing Agile User group for like-minded folks who are passionate about Lean and Agile to get together in an open forum for conversation.
