The Product Goals radar is a quick way to refine the working relationship between the Product Owner, the Scrum Team, and the Product Goal. You'll use data to evaluate if the goal you have created is designed to help the team work and collaborate as productively as possible.

Your team will rate itself on the following topics:

  1. Guides product value

  2. Is clearly communicated

  3. Is detailed enough

  4. Is achievable

  5. Is reflected by the backlog

  6. Is maintained collaboratively

You can always edit or replace a label with something else about your product goal that you want to assess during the “define” phase. Once the team has provided ratings during the “collect” phase, you’ll be able to explore where there’s agreement and where there are high or low scores during the “analyze” step.

Analyzing the Results

If you find disagreement or lower scores on any of these dimensions during your radar retrospective, you might consider running a column-based retrospective as a way to gather more insights and have a deeper discussion on that topic. For example, if you find low scores on "is achievable", you can have a follow-up conversation using a column-based retrospective to understand why the goal is not achievable and decide steps you can take to change that for future goals.
