Many things can fail when we work with teams. But one critical anti-pattern that leads to problems is the lack of a good Product Owner.

Listen in to learn about the many anti-patterns that can come from a poor Product Owner.
Faye has followed the work of Gerry Weinberg and recommends that to all Scrum Masters. She mentions several of Gerry Weinberg’s books in this episode, for example: The Secrets of Consulting, or An Introduction to General Systems Theory. For Faye, Gerry’s work is an example of what Scrum Masters work is about: being humane.
