Helen Garcia: The PO that could listen and learn from the Scrum team

In this episode, we talk about one of the key skills for successful Product Owners: the ability to listen to, and learn from the team.

The Great Product Owner: The PO that could listen and learn from the team

The ability to listen to the team and take advantage of that is one of the key characteristics of great Product Owners. After all, the team are the experts on the “how to deliver” question. In this segment, we share some tips that can help Product Owners become great listeners. 

The Bad Product Owner: The PO that was not able to listen

The opposite PO is the PO that can’t listen. Maybe they have too much going on, or it is just not how they work. In these cases, Scrum Masters must learn how to help Product Owners learn to listen. We discuss tips and tools to help PO’s that are too impatient to listen to the team.

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.
