Jeff Patton on Pragmatic Personas
This presentation from last years conference is a great place to start to find out more about identifying those differences in customer need that really make a difference to your product.

Rob Thomset – Radical Project Management
This book is where we discovered the sliders technique which provides a framework for considering relative priorities of non-functional aspects of the system.

Software by Numbers by Mark Denne and Jane Cleland-Huang
This was the book that introduced the notion of Minimal Marketable Features. This technique provides a means to realise the promise of incremental delivery of customer valued software.

Geoffrey Moore’s book Crossing the Chasm
This book describes the simple visioning exercise we use that, it turns out, provides the rails for the project helping us identify where we are going off track or experiencing a change in strategy.

Others we like include:

9 Box interview technique
Dave Nicolette describes this technique from Keith Eades’s book, Solution Selling.
