Peter Hilton shares his lessons learned from failure

The failure

Product Owners are often given that role because of what they know, but Scrum requires that Product Owners be available to the team. If they are not available that will create problems for the team.

Assigning a Business Analyst as a Product Owner may not be the right choice, especially if that Business Analyst is used to writing requirements “the old way”.

Listen to the podcast for Peter’s experience and insights on the problem.
