Agile product owners feel the need to be in all places, all the time, with all people. To succeed, they need to be inventive yet intensely focused; collaborative but decisive; far-sighted but detail oriented. The best product owners are strategic—envisioning the product, communicating upstream with business executives, researching the market, and continually planning for delivery of high-value product options.
Yet at the same time, they are also tactical—communicating downstream with the delivery team, running product demos, and discussing technical considerations. Talk about a role that requires excellent balance and effective collaboration!
We’ll explore the strategic and tactical work of agile product ownership. Then, we’ll use fast-paced game to determine the level of delegation that is appropriate for product ownership work. You’ll leave with new perspectives on ways you might lighten your load and strengthen your support system so that you can make space for the right things amidst the clutter of everything.
