    #9:focus – Saying NO: two variations – Robbin Schuurman (Prowareness)

    #9:focus – Saying NO: two variations – Robbin Schuurman (Prowareness)

    Hey everybody! We’re back with freshly recorded insights and practical tips for Product Owners, this time discussing two ways to say ‘No’. In this chat with Robbin Schuurman, he shares practical insights and tips from his own experience as a Product Owner, Professional Scrum Trainer and Agile Transformation Lead.
    One of the most important skills of a Product Owner when working with Stakeholders is simply saying ‘no’. Because of this, Robbin is working on a book for Product Owners together with Willem Vermaak. The book describes 50 shades of ‘No!’, and as a sneak preview, Robbin shares two of those with us. Even more importantly; how they will help your mandate and Stakeholder collaboration as a Product Owner.

    This Episode is the first of a new experimental format: we have a longer, in depth audio recording, and somewhere in the middle of it, we put a short focused topic, which is also released as a video. If you want to learn more about Robbin’s experiences, tips & tricks, please check out the FULL podcast interview on iTunes or in Soundcloud AND check the resources section below.

    In the full interview we discuss many more topics, ranging from Scrum Team collaboration to Stakeholder management to Value steering (closing the feedback loop by implementing metrics and end-user validation). Also, we discuss the relevance of Scrum for non-IT environments with some examples. Finally, Robbin shares his highlight of the Scrum Guide, as well as explains why he loves his Apple products so much & what Product Owners can learn from Apple.

    #8 New Time Leadership for Agile Innovation success – Kim Bosman (Schiphol Group)

    #8 New Time Leadership for Agile Innovation success – Kim Bosman (Schiphol Group)

    Kim Bosman is the Value Stream Owner @ Schiphol Airport Control (part of Schiphol’s Digital Airport Programme) and an independent Agile Strategist. As a Value Stream owner Kim acts as an enabler and leader for a group of Scrum teams. This way the Product Owners, Development Teams and Scrum Masters are given the trust and space to solve hard problems with creative solutions, supported by the kind of leadership that supports the agile mindset best. Kim tells the story of how they started a year ago, and how she shaped the environment for the teams to excel & innovate. The most important way to achieve this is to get the right Stakeholders on board to help remove impediments and support the teams doing the work. As you will learn throughout the parts of this interview, the common thread is how to hand pick the people that you feel you can trust to do the work by focusing on personalities that are honest proud and enthusiastic. This means selecting the best professionals, but also “people that make me smile” as Kim puts it.
    Check out the Complete interview in 5 themes below, all links and resources mentioned at the bottom and let us know what you think!
    Part 1 – Introduction and current assignment
    Kim explains how she got infected with the agile virus starting in retail and what other experience she gained on the way to her current position as a Value Stream Owner (VSO) for Airport Control. This is one of five Value Streams that are part of Schiphol’s Digital Airport Programme. Kim works with 6 Agile teams in her Value Stream, working on multiple products, the main one being WILBUR; a system for airport operations that foresees what is coming and enables Airport Control Coördinators to take proactive measures, optimizing flow and minimizing waiting times.
    Part 2 – Leadership in team collaboration

    The key to Agile success according to Kim is to take ownership of who you work with. Select the best people and look for authenticity, fun, passion & ambition. She also shares how she leverages the Sprint Reviews to interact with the teams and keep the Value Stream aligned to the direction and Vision for the program. Focusing on the main product (WILBUR and its AI) and staying loosely aligned with the other teams. Kim’s main tips: create the space to innovate, align people in the vision and the goal, and show results immediately.
    Part 3 – Stakeholder Leadership: from control to support
    Kim shares how to break loose from the old management style, to delegate decisions to the team and create the innovation safe space to experiment for the teams. She explains what she did at the start of the Value Stream to control the environment and the Stakeholder field, to get the Stakeholders in who could support the teams and act as ambassadors for the Value Stream. Kim also shares about her interactions with the Board and how to turn this often tricky-to-manage group of Stakeholders into supporters to reach the program’s goals through the Agile Teams in the Value Stream. How to maximize the impact of the limited time a VSO gets to spend with the Board.
    Part 4 – Value Leadership through KPI’s & actual use
    At Schiphol’s Digital Airport Programme, all Value Streams are aligned through common KPI’s, for instance optimizing the flow of passengers like we mentioned in the introduction. The KPI’s cover the most important area’s for passengers and airlines (both types of customer for the Airport). Be bold in your goals, and try to reach them. But provide safety to fail, as long as you’ve tried hard and learned from it. The next step is to measure adoption of WILBUR since the value of the product is made by its usage. Based upon that data the plan is to use the automated delivery street to speed up feature delivery. To get the best value, you have to invest in the best people and employ new time leadership.
    Part 5 – Closin

    #6 Stakeholder Management and Starting out with Metrics – Stephan van Maris (E-Village)

    #6 Stakeholder Management and Starting out with Metrics – Stephan van Maris (E-Village)

    In this episode of the podcast I chat with Stephan van Maris, Product Owner of the Clang e-mail marketing platform at E-Village. Stephan has a technical background and developed himself from one of the core engineers to Product Owner who is now letting go of the technical details to focus on improving the product through customer collaboration.
    In the 5 parts to this interview (new experiment!) we discuss:
    1. Introduction, path to current role, context (organization) and mandate level as a Product Owner;
    2. Collaboration with the Scrum Team – Stephan shares how he works with the development team and scrum master, and tells a story of their approach for better alignment in developing and designing a new module, by collaborating as a team on the ideation and possible realization, resulting in the new module’s backlog items as a team effort (instead of being a solo-PO act);
    3. Stakeholder Management – Stephan discusses how he engages both the internal stakeholder field as well as the external stakeholders through regular contact & customer feedback events;
    4. Value Steering – We discuss the current efforts to close the feedback loop by introducing metrics for value steering. Up till now Stakeholder discussions and subsequent decisions were based on hypothetical returns and gut feeling, but by implementing a low cost usage statistic tool (Piwik), now the backlog decisions are based on data and this is influencing decisions and discussions already;
    5. Closing – We discuss how Stephan deals with technical debt, NFR’s and the bouyscout rule used by the development team. Furthermore after mentioning culture a few times in the earlier parts, Stephan shares a Netflix presentation that gave him valuable insights for developing the E-Village culture.
