Key learning

  1. Agile — This is an iterative product development approach, it suits situations where we don’t have super clear requirements or we want to test out new ideas/products/services.
  2. Waterfall — This is a sequential product development approach, it suits situations where we have extremely clear requirements and we are confident that this is factual not assumptions.
  3. Product Roadmapping — It’s a visual form of product development plans, any PM can use this as a tool to keep tracking of her products or as a tool for communication with stakeholders.
  4. Kanban — Kanban or Kanban board is the most simple Agile methodology tool. The fundamental component comprises of 3 parts: to do, doing, and done. I personally used the kanban board in trello/asana before, it’s a tool for project management and it’s super useful in my opinion.
  5. Scrum — Scrum is one of the most common Agile methodology. The operation of scrum is under sprint between 1 to 4 weeks. Scrum contains predefined roles and ceremonies, or you can called events, which include daily standup, sprint review, sprint planning. A scrum consists of developers, scrum master, and product owner.
  6. Product Owner is the term derived from Agile framework, this is not the same as Product Management. Mostly, the difference comes from the scope of the work.
  7. SAFe — This is an agile framework for a large enterprise, this would enable governance across the company. SAFe big picture summarizes how every team in any level interconnects. This framework applies scrum, kanban, and xp in different use cases.
