Scrum Product Ownership -- Balancing Value from the Inside Out

Rate this book
One of the least discussed and most challenging roles in the Scrum Agile Methodology is that of Product Owner. Quite often Product Owners are selected from the ranks of Product Managers or Business Analysts and simply thrown into the role. While these backgrounds can lead to successful product ownership, often there are fundamental understanding and large skills gaps that need to be crossed in order to be truly successful. This book takes a unique look at the role of Scrum Product Owner with a focus on how the role needs to interact with their Scrum team first--thus the inside out. We review all of the nuance and requisite habits that allow the Scrum Product Owner to drive their teams towards creating high quality products that provide great customer value.

Overall a pretty good book with a lot of advice to try out and experiment with. There are however a couple practices that are not in line with the Scrum Guide (Sprint(s) Zero, Hardening Sprint(s), canceling planning, canceling the entire sprint just because the dev team is struggling, etc) and the author is not equally consistent in emphasizing that.

A perennial problem... Lack of good product ownership. Some good into and tips in this book but badly in need of an editor.

A deeper dive into how a PO should function. A good read for functional managers and leaders who need a complete perspective of this role.
