Path to Agility 2011 - Ken Schwaber - Scrum and the Product Owner

[article]
Summary:
Ken Schwaber and Bob Payne chat about the product owner (PO) roll and the complexity that can emerge when we ask too much of the product owner. This has always been a key role and we have sometimes dode the project a disservice by focusing the PO on the needs of development.

Ken and I chat about the product owner (PO) roll and the complexity that can emerge when we ask too much of the product owner. This has always been a key role and we have sometimes dode the project a disservice by focusing the PO on the needs of development. This can sometimes create a situation where the PO is focused too much on user stories and not enough on the product context and value.  

It has been quite a wihle since I have chatted with Ken and I look forward to chatting with him again.

In addition to the other large conferences that Ken will be speaking at he will also be a keynote at the AgileDC conference.

Enjoy
