We can’t always have the PO we want, however sometimes we get exactly what we need! In this episode, we also introduce an exercise for the team and PO to come to an agreement of how to best collaborate!

The Great Product Owner: A great newbie PO!

Great Product Owners can come from unexpected places. In this story, we hear about one team that thought they needed a super-experienced “heavy hitter” in their industry. Instead, they got a newbie PO that had little experience in their industry, however, that was just the right PO for that team, at that time. Listen in to learn why a newbie PO can be just the right thing for your team!

The Bad Product Owner: Build your own PO, a method to help the team and PO collaborate!

Carsten describes the “Bungie PO”, a PO that shows up briefly, but never when the team needs them. We explore some of the problems that arise from PO’s that constantly come and go, and what we can do to help the team work with the PO to establish a basis for collaboration.

In this segment, we refer to the exercise Build Your Own Scrum Master.

Are you having trouble helping the team work well with their Product Owner? We’ve put together a course to help you work on the collaboration team-product owner. You can find it at 18 modules, 8+ hours of modules with tools and techniques that you can use to help teams and PO’s collaborate.
