  • Objectives

    Week 1 Objectives: Kanban Product Professional I (Identifying and Defining Value)

    KPP I Course Objectives:

    KPP I teaches the underlying models to provide a means to make sense of markets and define products that are optimized for the complex fitness landscapes created by modern consumers. 

    • Students will learn to segment markets by customer purpose, and to create personas based on an imaginary consumer in each segment. 


    • Using the Fit-for-Purpose Framework, learn the concept of a whole product with design, implementation and customer experience or service delivery. Define fitness criteria in terms of functional and non-functional requirements to meet each of the three whole product dimensions.  


    • Using business domain modeling and the product feature template, students will explore product requirements and learn to categorize them and map them to market segments as differentiating, neutralizing, cost reducing, or table stakes or regulatory in nature. The six commonly recurring fitness criteria of time, quality, safety & compliance, convenience, optionality, and affordability, act to explore requirements and discover hidden value. 


    • Students will learn to analyze customer experience using the humans & narrative approach and the Fitness Box Score survey and data approach from the Fit for Purpose Framework. Define product strategy using the Fitness Target Matrix and focus investment and experimentation where it is most valued.

    • Filter large backlogs using risk assessment frameworks, and triage thresholds
