  • How to get Product, Delivery & Engineering to work harmoniously
  • How story points can save the world and how to use them properly
  • Whether Scrum is any good and some of the ways to make it work for your business
  • The tricky balance between Product Delivery and fixing tech debt
  • How to use the data you already have to help inform future delivery decisions
  • How to use data to sell your message to the leadership team
  • How running a band and running Product Delivery are pretty similar

And much more!
