The Great Product Owner: How to win the trust of your team as a Product Owner Great Product Owners think about the impact of their work on the team, not only the product. They plan the communication with the team and the stakeholders, and work with the Scrum Master to help facilitate workshops with the team and stakeholders. Over time, and thanks to their openness and honesty, great PO's win over the trust from the team. The Bad Product Owner: The project manager PO Sometimes Product Owners fall into the project management temptation of splitting the work for the team. And in the worst case, they split the work even before the team is involved, or even defined. This approach creates waste, and makes the PO a single point of failure for the team's success. 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.   About Elly Griffith-Ward Elly is an Agile Coach at a major e-commerce company. Previously in user research (and a royal food historian). She aims to 1) improve the experience of work through reducing mental load, improving communication and forming strong teams 2) shift the focus from managing the worker to managing the work by focusing on flow and waste.

The team Elly was working with had a very large number of items in progress (high WIP). This was also a result of the team being under a lot of pressure to deliver. The team was motivated to deliver, but was also feeling down because of the inability to deliver all they wanted, when they wanted. Elly started to help the team by understanding their context, and then trying to understand where the work was being held up. She started learning Value-Stream-Mapping, a technique that helped identify the bottlenecks, something she had learned about in the book The Goal by Goldratt. Through that research work, Elly found out some options to improve the flow of work for that team. Listen in to learn what those were, and what technique she used to help the team! In this segment, we talk about the concept of Shifting Left, and Extreme Programming. Featured Book of the Week: Nonviolent Communication by Rosenberger In Nonviolent Communication by Rosenberger, Elly found a book that helped her as a Scrum Master, but also in other aspects of her life. The book offers a model of communication that tries to focus on resolving conflicts, and helps us become more self-aware of how we communicate with others. In this segment, we also talk about the hand-brain model, and the two thinking/acting systems (System 1 and System 2) that Kahneman describes in the book Thinking Fast, Thinking Slow. How can Angela (the Agile Coach) quickly build healthy relationships with the teams she's supposed to help? What were the steps she followed to help the Breeze App team fight off the competition?

The Great Product Owner: Thinking BIG, but executing the details together with the team A great Product Owner is able to change their perspective easily, they are able to talk about “the big vision”, as well as discuss some detailed questions that the team needs to answer when implementing the stories selected for a Sprint. This PO kept a “one pager” with a visual representation of the product roadmap, which helped create a language about the product that helped define direction, and collect feedback from the team, as well as stakeholders. The Bad Product Owner: Lost in the inbox, how PO's can lose sight of what matters for the product and the Scrum team! This PO saw themselves as the project manager. He delegated work to specific team me mbers, and saw his relationship with stakeholders as one of reporting only. This PO ended up acting like a (broken) telephone between stakeholders and the team. The PO was not able to focus on outcomes, instead focusing on detailed requests that arrived constantly by email and other means.

If you want to follow the agile or scrum manual or worship the rules, you can't be an artist. An artist expresses their opinion, their creative contribution, or their vision with the tools of their medium. By definition, your art must be an original. Nobody else could make the exact same thing. Artistry involves discovery, failure, and risk. What you make might not work right away. It might require sweat and continuous refinement. It might force you to admit that you don't know everything. It might take you to unexplored and dangerous places. Doesn't that sound like agile? Without these elements, you're applying a recipe. You're blindly implementing best practices and rules. There is no room to create something new that serves the distinct character of your team, your client, or their customer ***JOIN THE FORGE*** Click here to discover more: https://badassagile.com/the-forge/ ****** ***WANT TO GROW AN AGILE BUSINESS?*** Check out my new premium podcast – “The Badass Agile Entrepreneur”. https://learning.fusechamber.com/#podcast/ We're also on YouTube! Follow the podcast, enjoy some panel/guest commentary, and get some quick tips and guidance from me: https://www.youtube.com/c/BadassAgile Check out the new online magazine about the future of agility: https://www.theagilehorizon.com Looking for your first Scrum Master job?  We help make the transition easier: https://www.agilesidekick.co ****** Follow on CLUBHOUSE: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/badass-agile Don't forget to join us in the Badass Agile Listener Lounge on Facebook for member exclusives, livestreams and previews! https://www.facebook.com/groups/badasslistenerlounge/ Follow The LinkedIn Page: https://www.linkedin.com/showcase/badass-agile ****** Our mission is to create an elite tribe of leaders who focus on who they need to become in order to lead and inspire, and to be the best agile podcast and resource for effective mindset and leadership game.

Matthias shares with us his perspective on what are great, and not-so-great Scrum Masters. His Product Owner perspective helps us understand our work as Scrum Masters from a totally different point of view. The Great Scrum Master: Learning how to step back and still help the Scrum team succeed Matthias describes a great Scrum Master as someone that is able to help the team grow, and own their work even when the Scrum Master is not there. We hear about a Scrum Master that was able to reduce their engagement with a team down to 20% of his time, but still help the team succeed. In this segment, Matthias also shares with all the Product Owners out there, what they can expect (and not) from Scrum Masters they work with.  The Bad Scrum Master: When the SM protects the Scrum team far too much! We know that a Scrum Master must be able to protect their teams. However, that can be too much sometimes. In this segment, we hear about a Scrum Master that was so successful at protecting the team, that they separated the team from the client to the point where collaboration with the client was no longer possible. Especially in consulting/third party software development, the role of the Scrum Master is critical when it comes to building a productive relationship with the client organization. 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. About Matthias Kostwein Matthias is a Project Manager, turned Programmer, turned PO, turned Client Service Director with a varied background in different industries from Mechanical Engineering to IT Agencies. Throughout all of his journey, Agile has been part of his work life, even before he knew what Scrum was. You can link with Matthias Kostwein on LinkedIn.

In this episode, we share two retrospective formats. The one that Matthias likes to use as the Product Owner, is the Client - Team retrospective, where the goal is to engage with the client and try and build a better relationship between Client and Team.  Because Matthias is a Product Owner, we dive into his definition of a successful Product Onwer. He shares the importance of understanding the responsibilities that the Product Owner has, as well as the PO's role in helping people achieve something great, instead of telling them what to do. In this segment, we also talk about the importance of setting great Sprint Goals, and Matthias shares with us a video that helps explain the importance of knowing how to communicate requirements as a Product Owner.  Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: The Meme Agile Retrospective, a fun and engaging format Matthias prefers to focus on the core aspect of the Retrospective practice, helping the team stay constructive and productive. He likes to change formats regularly, and recommends the “meme retrospective” as a fun and active retrospective format that invites the team members to actively contribute to the retrospective.  Do you wish you had decades of experience?

Keeping a curious perspective is always positive. Learn how Teams operate; please avoid jumping in and telling them what “needs to be done.” Learn, as a Scrum Master, how you can affect your Team. In a “remote” world, we miss running into somebody. “Can I reach out to you again?” is a good way of staying in touch with people and following up on various topics. Some programs are teaching Scrum in a bad way. Scrum Masters should watch and learn from Teams, it takes a lot to be able to be silent. Access your ignorance, you don't know what the Team has been going through.   Mentioned in this Episode: Lakota America: A New History of Indigenous Power (The Lamar Series in Western History), Pekka Hamalainen   Want to Learn More or Get in Touch?

Finally, great PO's know how to collaborate with the Scrum Master to help the team succeed.  The Bad Product Owner: The PO that thought they “owned” the team When Product Owners think they “own the team”, they might change the team's priorities according to their own personal preferences.

Agile Survival Agile survival depends on circulating value. You can't stand still, surrounded by the same four walls, and expect to grow. A Bad Pattern We've gotten into a bad pattern in the past few decades. If we're not talking software, we don't know how to serve our clients with agility. Most CEO's don't know for sure what agile is – or what it can do for them when used beyond the technology sphere. You can apply Agile and Scrum anywhere you have a high-value and uncertain outcome. We should be using our superpowers to help companies bring products and solutions “to the market” quicker. That could be product, solutions, culture, revenue, or change. How You Can Help Remember, our universe is changing. There are more and more scrum masters and coaches every year. If all of us are heading straight for the software team rooms, we're going to oversaturate the market and lose our value. Here's where we can be helping to busines solve their MOST important problems. For example: Remote work – how can you make this work for people who no longer want to work in centralized offices? Help companies experiment with new modes of working. Figure out the challenges and change the perceptions that remote work is bad/impossible Quiet Quitting And Great Resignation – people are quitting and they're not being replaced. This increases resource pressure and dissatisfaction on the people left behind – and then they quit too. Whoever solves tis problem first will recover from this unique challenge. There's no template – this has never been done before. Innovation and creativity is required. Throwing Money at #2 – turns out that's not what was needed. We've filled a resource gap with resources that can't/don't want to work with passion and purpose. Economic Instability – there has never been a better time to help companies react to unstable conditions. That could include bringing new products to market, pivoting, increasing customer value or loyalty, diversifying revenue streams, or simplifying existing processes or structures. We can also be teaching new agile and scrum practitioners how to approach these opportunities. ***JOIN THE FORGE*** Sign up for an upcoming info session about our online leadership immersion experience. ***JOIN THE FORGE*** Sign up for an upcoming info session about our online leadership immersion experience. https://event.webinarjam.com/register/15/l71zgcl Or click here to discover more: https://badassagile.com/the-forge/ ****** ***WANT TO GROW AN AGILE BUSINESS?*** Check out my new premium podcast – “The Badass Agile Entrepreneur”. https://learning.fusechamber.com/#podcast/ We're also on YouTube! Follow the podcast, enjoy some panel/guest commentary, and get some quick tips and guidance from me: https://www.youtube.com/c/BadassAgile Check out the new online magazine about the future of agility: https://www.theagilehorizon.com Looking for your first Scrum Master job?  We help make the transition easier: https://www.agilesidekick.co ****** Follow on CLUBHOUSE: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/badass-agile Don't forget to join us in the Badass Agile Listener Lounge on Facebook for member exclusives, livestreams and previews! https://www.facebook.com/groups/badasslistenerlounge/ Follow The LinkedIn Page: https://www.linkedin.com/showcase/badass-agile ****** www.badassagile.com Our mission is to create an elite tribe of leaders who focus on who they need to become in order to lead and inspire, and to be the best agile podcast and resource for effective mindset and leadership game.

When considering the Retrospective format to use Allison invites us to consider what the teams are asking for, as well as what they are not asking for. But when a conversation about performance and team collaboration is necessary, Allison suggests we use the High Performance Tree model from Coaching Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins. In this segment we also refer to the models ORID and OODA, which help us consider what might be the right topic for the team, as well as facilitate the conversation around that topic.   Do you wish you had decades of experience?

Are ScrumMasters Really Facilitators?

When asked what facilitation is, I have heard Scrum masters describe it as Sending meeting invites and booking conference rooms, Starting and ending the events on time, Creating reports or sending out M.o.M and Ordering refreshments and pizzas Is this really facilitation? Facilitation originates from the Latin word facile, which means ‘to make it easy.' The facilitator is thus the person who makes things easier for others. Facilitation is a stance that is closely associated with the Scrum master role, primarily Facilitate the events as needed or requested. Facilitate stakeholder collaboration as needed or requested. The intent of the Scrum master's stance as a facilitator should be to enable self-management and increase the team's effectiveness to achieve better outcomes. The outcome is the team's responsibility when facilitating events, and the Scrum master is there to help arrive at it. By facilitating events, the Scrum master helps tap into the team's collective intelligence and ensures the team's ownership and commitment to it. Though Scrum masters are knowledgeable and have a contingent interest in the outcome, they do not let this influence the team's work or the decisions. To be an effective facilitator, the Scrum master takes a neutral stance regarding content and the intended outcome. The Scrum master, however, is not neutral to the decision-making process and actively contributes by diagnosing and intervening as needed. The facilitator role of the Scrum master is particularly beneficial given the complexity of the work the teams are dealing with and the cross-functional team's diverse perspectives and interests. The Scrum master will take on diverse perspectives of creativity, consensus, collaboration, and creative conflict resolution to create and sustain a participatory environment for the teams to engage, design, and own their outcomes. Effective facilitation of the Scrum master tackles the power dynamics in the team and provides an environment where all voices and perspectives are heard and have influence. The Scrum master, as a facilitator, enables self-management by setting up a participatory approach to decision-making and moving away from cascading decisions of the traditional top-down approach. Facilitation enables collective ownership, improves capability building, and dramatically increases the probability of successful team and organizational change. The typical pattern seen in great facilitators is their unwavering belief that People are intelligent, resourceful, and desirous of doing the right thing. The title of an individual has no bearing on their ability to add value. A team's decisions are far superior to those of a lone individual. The key indicator of effective facilitation is when the team feels they did the work and are accountable for the outcome.

Agile teams are self-organized, which means they operate with the absence of central authority. Dev Managers often ask, "So what's my role?" If your Development Manager is not the Product Owner, or the Scrum Master, or a contributing pig or chicken, they are left asking the obvious question, "What do I do?" The legacy answer was to "stay out of the teams way!" Agile enthusiasts agree this is the standard answer for a team governing itself. However clever, this answer left the industry with a puzzle. Now, finallly, the puzzle is solved. The Stable Framework™, an out-of-the-box quality framework that can be dropped into Agile, provides the answer. As the Master Chief, the Development Manager assumes their rightful place as the quality champion. They are responsible for seeing to it that requirement reviews, architecture reviews, code reviews, estimation procedures, and all necessary testing gets completed using the best structural safeguards known to the team.
