Good Product Ownership is the most important predictor of long-term product and team success. But few companies seem to realize this, or even know what a good Product Owner does. After a brief explanation of the role of the Product Owner in Scrum and the challenges it has faced over the last 10 years, Rob will guide you through some tangible measures that you can use immediately to evaluate Product Ownership for your product or company. The answers will surprise you. Like Scrum, good Product Ownership is simple, but incredibly difficult.
