Products Work Group

The Work Group accountable for the Products Domain:

Product Management as part of Marketing & Sales understand the market need, trends and the overall strategy of VSHN. They develop and propose concrete offerings.

As we collaborativle make strategic decisions, involving those affected (in this case the teams that work to deliver our offerings), we need a way to officially meet understand and decide together.

What we do

Collaboratively Learn

We exchange how we work (Methods, Processes, Tools) as Product Owner so that we can learn from each other and improve our skills. We’ll do that in a retro style, but can also amend the format if requested.

Agreeing on Product Goals

We agree on the strategic product goals for each product, which is prepared by the respective Product Owner together with Product Management. This way we also shape the longer term product roadmap, up to "where do we want to be in a year?". For that, Customer Care is also involved.

Governance / Decisions

We’re governing VIPs assigned to our workgroup.
