    The Great Product Owner: Available and part of the team, the key aspects of a great PO This particular PO helped Priyanka learn her role as a Scrum Master. But that wasn’t all. This PO knew and understood well the business and product they owned. They would quickly answer the team’s questions and make themselves available to the team. The PO also knew, and was able to put time aside to listen to the team’s ideas and was always prepared with a Plan B in case some idea was not possible. Finally, the PO felt they were part of the team, and were there to enable the team to succeed!
    The Bad Product Owner: The PO that burned out, and created a big problem for themselves and the team This PO was not only a Product Owner, but they also played the Scrum Master role in the team. It was easy to see that the PO was overloaded, but in this case the PO also was involved in “everything else”. Over time, the PO burned out and the team suffered. This taught an important lesson to Priyanka: we must help the PO’s understand their role, and when to step back. The wrong expectations can create huge problems for the team and the PO themselves!
    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 bit.ly/coachyourpo. 18 modules, 8+ hours of modules with tools and techniques that you can use to help teams and PO’s collaborate.

    The definition of success can change based on the context of the team, however there are certain questions that Priyanka likes to ask for every team she works with. Priyanka shares those questions with us, as well as some self-assessment questions for Scrum Masters to help them fine tune their approach to the team they work with. 
    Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: The Superpowers retrospective format Priyanka prefers to experiment with multiple retrospective formats. This helps her maintain the team’s energy high in every retrospective. However, when starting with a new team, she prefers to use the Superpowers format, where the team can talk about the “enemies” (challenges) as well as share what each team member can contribute to the team to overcome the challenges they expect to face.

    Navigating the product predictably, and inviting criticism enables great product conversations | Linda van Sinten

    Navigating the product predictably, and inviting criticism enables great product conversations | Linda van Sinten

    The Great Product Owner: Navigating the product predictably, and inviting criticism enables great product conversations Great PO’s are well organized, as that helps the team know what to expect, and when to expect it. Not only the features/work to do, but also the type of information they get as well as when they can interact with the PO. But the good organization of the PO goes beyond their relationship with the team, and also includes having a good understanding of what the stakeholders needs. 
    We also discuss how the PO invites, and welcomes criticism of the product and their work, and is not afraid of calling the team out when they are gold plating, and not focusing on the customer/user/stakeholder needs. 
    The Bad Product Owner: Stepping back so much that the team got lost This PO had no say on what the team was doing. The PO acted almost as a secretary because someone else was defining and scheduling the stories for the team. Even if the PO role was not clear in this organization, the fact that the PO was stepping back so much let the team in limbo. We discuss how the PO role is critical in enabling the team to succeed!

Erdi Arslan ,

An extremely valuable source!

I've been listening to this nice podcast for about a year now. The work that Vasco and his team is doing is just wonderful! For Scrum Masters it's really tricky to hear each other's experiences and learn from them but Vasco and this toolbox makes it way easier! Keep up the good work!
