As Kevin worked with a team whose client was the Product Owner, he found himself with very little to do. The team was working well, except… As he dug deeper, he realized that the PO was not taking full ownership of the role. However, at that time Kevin thought of himself as the Scrum Master, and only that. Because of that, the team started suffering. At that time Kevin realized that being a Scrum Master is – sometimes – about stepping in and helping the Product Owner hands-on! Learn how he pulled it off by listening to this episode.
In this episode, we refer to the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast’s Coach Your Product Owner e-course, which is designed to help you work together with your PO, and create a productive partnership that helps the team!
