Daniel Westermayr: Trusting Your Team, The Foundation of Great Product Ownership

The Great Product Owner: Trusting Your Team, The Foundation of Great Product Ownership

In this segment, Daniel discusses the importance of the "leap of faith" that great POs take by letting go of control and trusting their team to deliver. By believing in their team, great POs are able to motivate and focus their team's efforts. Daniel also mentions the NoEstimates movement and the idea that a forecast is a range rather than a single number. Great POs do not second guess their team or the data, and are willing to accept the team's delivery even if they don't fully understand it.

The Bad Product Owner: How to Help Your Product Owner Succeed by Saying “No” When Necessary

In this segment, Daniel discusses the tendency Product Owners have to say "yes" to everything in order to appease or please others, even if it means not properly prioritizing tasks. Daniel emphasizes the importance of understanding the PO's perspective and using forecasting to help the PO say "no" when necessary. He also highlights the crucial role of Scrum Masters in helping the PO prioritize and say "no." The ability for organizations to hear and accept "no" is also a key factor in mitigating this anti-pattern. Daniel encourages POs to say "no" when necessary and reassures them that it is possible to change their mind later.
