Franziska Moenster: How Scrum Masters can help organize and prioritize a chaotic Product Backlog

The Great Product Owner: The focused PO that asked the right questions

This Product Owner asked a lot of questions, because she focused on the value the organization wanted to achieve with the product or feature to be developed. Not having a technology background also helped her ask questions from the team, and getting them involved in the decision making process. In this segment, we also talk about one characteristic of the PO’s personality that is critical for the team: being focused!

The Bad Product Owner: Helping organize and prioritize a chaotic Product Backlog

This Product Owner was not able to focus, and that was visible in the backlog which was “chaotic”, without ranking or prioritization. Given that prioritization is a key aspect of the PO role, we discuss how Franny was able to help this PO figure out that prioritization needed to happen, and how she helped the PO get to a difficult, but very important prioritization of work!

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.
