Stefania Marinelli: The PO that knew how to engage the Scrum Team

Working with the team, in the right way, is critical for the PO to succeed, so we explore what a great PO would do differently, and what are some of the anti-patterns we should be looking out for.

The Great Product Owner: The PO that engaged the Scrum Team

When the PO listens to the team, and works every day to help solve some of the blockers that that team is facing is on the path to being a great PO. But the key is when the PO is present with the team, not only to listen but to understand how to help the team succeed. When this happens, the PO is contributing to the team feeling engaged and passionate about their work!

The Bad Product Owner: The “New day, new priority” PO

In this segment, we discuss several anti-patterns to be on the look-out for. We talk about the PO that wants too much technical detail, and the constant change in priorities that sometimes comes from the Product Owner. 

Finally, we talk about decision making, and how important it is to have a PO that can bring the right people into a meeting to make quick decisions.

Are you having trouble helping the team working 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.
