Product vs Delivery

Have you ever been asked to write requirements for a poorly defined, sometimes non-existent product?

Worst still, have you ever been expected to produce wireframes and UI designs on behalf of an absent or unappointed product owner?

Unfortunately, itโ€™s an all too familiar situation.

These days, I walk clients through a simple cheat sheet that visually explains the difference between product design and software delivery. The confusion is usually quickly cleared up and responsibilities allocated.

Failing that, you at least know where problems will likely happen and how to spend your time ie. making the case for a product owner and product design function.

You are welcome to use my deck, Product vs Delivery, in your own client conversations.
