As a Product Owner I want an efficient backlog methodology So that I can more effectively work the backlog and present the backlog to the team Product Owner Primary audience, but this is the written interface between the vision and the production so it’s good for everyone in the team to understand this take on backlogs.

Uncut footage of me helping a team discover Kaizen (small change) and KaiKaku (big change) in a quick, safe, abstract way before embarking on their new organisational role. Also just a great, fun team-building game that raises team-awareness and self-awareness, and breaks the ice.
