In my previous post on product management, I focused on the overall product context in which a story workflow could occur. I mentioned a follow-on post that would get a little more granular regarding that workflow and this is that post. Here we’ll discuss epics, stories, and tasks and I’ll discuss these concepts in relation to a personal project I’m working on. So let’s dive in!
Previously I talked about project management and a quality focus. Here I want to take both down a level to get a little more practical, specifically around the idea of how that quality focus strongly encourages delivery teams to create product maps. It’s those product maps that will give a team the first insights into what quality is going to look like.
In a series of posts I talked about product development. But now let’s dig in a little to the idea of product management. Although not often framed as such, product management is very much an area of quality assurance. The intersection is crucial in the modern technology industry.
