In this episode, Oz (Oguz Ozyurt) shares a story of a difficult collaboration with a Product Owner. He was working with a team and Product Owner who had different levels of experience, and while the team had completed the functionality for the iteration, they were not ready to release it. The Product Owner was surprised and pressed the team to release the functionality, which led to a failure. From this experience, Oz learned the importance of defining the definition of done with the team, as well as partnering with the Product Owner to define the goal together. He also emphasizes the importance of accepting that sometimes we fail, and working together with the team and Product Owner to define a plan for how to handle failures.
