A couple of years ago, I blogged on Innovation Accounting in Scrum, and the bringing of empiricism to product ownership. On Tuesday I gave a presentation on this topic to the Agile Northants UK meetup. There was a pretty good Q&A afterwards. The session was recorded and is available here.
Abstract: In Scrum a Product Owner can be described as a "value maximizer"...but how is value calculated? In this presentation we consider how empiricism ought to underpin any assessment, and at how the discipline of "Innovation Accounting" can challenge predictive value assumptions.
Full disclosure: I was reimbursed for this talk with a pepperoni pizza. It arrived about ten minutes in.
