What I have learnt about product management, agile, and personal development at a big bank
It's not often, actually my 1st time, I resigned from a workplace I have been for more than 7 years. Over the last few years, I have been working as a designer in an innovation lab, and a digital product owner on one of the biggest transformation program happening in the banking industry, called customer journey. Both of them applied a model to bring cross-functional talents together to deliver common goals for our customers.
In a short period of time at fast paced environments, I have learnt tons about human centred design, agile and product management. Some of the learnings are from my personal experience, some are learnings from others.
I am going to share 3 parts of learnings
PART 1: 9 learnings on the process of developing a product from discovery phase to delivery phase
Learning 1: The mindset of DVF, and take ownership to explore DVF, at scale.
Learning 2: Understand your problem statement, and create a clear and long lasting vision
Learning 3: Trust the experts and empower the team
Learning 4: Know the rules before you break the rules (understand current state of your solution)
Learning 5: Clear roles and responsibilities = Clear accountabilities and actions
Learning 6: Make use of your cross-functional talents, make it real team collaboration
Learning 7: Create an actionable roadmap. Convert the experience into coherent user stories. Focus on less, to deliver more
Learning 8: Tactical solution vs Strategic solution, whichever you chose, make sure it's shared understanding
Learning 9: Engage with your stakeholders
PART 2: What do people look for in a good PO, designer, scrum master and technologist.
1. A good product leader
2. What makes a good design
3. What makes a right solution
4. What makes a good scrum
PART 3: My personal growth, and how I took feedback in.
1. Feedback on communications

Happy reading ;)
