Practices of a Great Product Owner

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Arguably the most important role in a Scrum team is that of Product Owner. It’s also one of the most challenging. Part of that challenge comes from the agile community itself because the role has been so ill defined to-date. Most Product Owners are sort of thrown into a Scrum team with little guidance regarding the role and responsibilities.

Another part of the challenge is skill and time based. The role is nuanced and requires a broad set of skills and often more time than is available. However, the Product Owner must find a way to serve their team in driving product development.

In this session, Bob Galen will explore the practices and techniques, focus points, and patterns of a great Product Owner. One that serves their team well and effectively balances the demands of external stakeholders against the demands of their team. We’ll explore the dynamics of correctly defined Product Backlogs, establishing powerful Sprint Reviews, and explore approaches for creating a team-view towards filling all aspects of the Product Owner role. Finally we’ll examine how the Product Owner drives quality and value in meeting the teams’ commitments to the business.
