Stacey Taurah: Putting people first, a Product Owner lesson that Scrum Masters can amplify!

The Great Product Owner: Putting people first, a Product Owner lesson that Scrum Masters can amplify!

Great Product Owners put people first in their decision making. Whether it is the team, or the customers, or the stakeholders, they focus on the interaction and the improvements they can deliver to those people. Great PO’s consider the input from everyone in the process, and help the Scrum Master make work fun, because teams that have fun, are more creative and more productive!

The Bad Product Owner: Why PO’s want to act as dictators, and how we can help Agile teams change the dynamic

When Product Owners want to dictate how developers work, it can lead to conflict, and lack of motivation from the part of the team! But how to detect the more subtle ways in which PO’s try to dictate to developers the “how”?
