  The best resource for Product Owners is Bob Galen's Scrum Product Ownership book.  It’s a great reference and source of information for how to do the role the right way. Its intent is a guide for beginner PO’s and a resource for more seasoned ones as well.  In this episode, Bob joins the show to discuss the upcoming changes for the 3rd version.  In it, there are some new areas, more stories, and more information that PO’s need to understand.  A great deep dive into why some POs struggle and some strategies to help along the way.   Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host Bob Galen - @bobgalen - Bob Galen - Scrum Product Ownership - The 4 Quadrants of Product Ownership Modern Agile #13 - Issues with Product Owner role

  Moving from dev to Product Owner with your team is something that is quite difficult to do.  There are a bunch of new skills, hats, and behaviors you have to be ready to learn.  In this episode, we talk with Jamie Collins who has been on that PO journey for the last year about his experience and what he has been able to do so far. If you want to share your PO story with us please contact the show, we love having other people talk about their successes, learnings, and how they do the role differently.   Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host Jamie Collins -  @jamieuka Darshana Sivakumar - How I transitioned from being a developer to a product manager at Amazon Uptal Vaishnav - Can the Principal Software Engineer Assume the Product Owner Role on a Scrum Team?

  Where should Product Owners look to engage with others in Product Discovery? The notion of not “knowing” what should be done can be uncomfortable or straight scary to a lot of people. However, the notion of learning more about our product and how our users can, and are already benefiting from it is a great topic to explore. In this episode, David Hussman joins the show to talk about his riffs on how great product teams make meaningful impacts and explore ideas.     Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host David Hussman -   @davidhussman David Hussman - Products over Process David Hussman - Effective Product Discovery and Dude’s Law Henrik - Agile: Where are we at?

  Should Product Owners be concerned about flow? Is flow a part of what a PO needs to focus on from time to time? That thought, and the response to it, initiated a deeper look into what flow actually is and if it’s something that we need to learn more about.  There are several different aspects to flow and in this episode, we’ll dive into them and see if there are ways that we can at least help.     Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host Bob Marshall - 10 benefits of flow in software Johanna Rothman - Resource Efficiency vs. Flow Efficiency Marek Bowers - Creating Perfect User Flows for Smooth UX 3 Bottle Oiled Wheels Demonstration David Marquet - Creating Leadership and Engagement at Every Level Rian Van der Merwe  - The biggest mistakes product managers make (and how to avoid them)

  The Product Owner role is established in the Scrum Guide. The behaviors, activities, and definitions of what a PO is supposed to do come mainly from this 16-page document.  It’s amazing then how so few people, including Product Owners, have actually read it. If you are “Doing Scrum” then you should at least understand what the guide says.  In this episode, Tim Ottinger joins us to talk about the mentions of the Product Owner, what that really means, and we discuss if most PO’s do those things. Once you understand what it says, then you can talk about if you and the teams are following scrum or notscrum.   Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host Tim Ottinger -   @tottinge Tim Ottinger - There is no such thing as a scrum development team.... - The Scrum Guide Agile for Humans - AFH 074: The Past, Present, and Future of Scrum IT Risk Manager - Fairness in processes and systems Steve Johnson - Why Your Organization Cannot Innovate

  Something that Product Owners can continually get better at, is making the stories we tell, and ask for teams to work on, smaller. Smaller stories provide so many benefits to everyone and allow us to become more agile.  There are lots of different ways to approach this and in this episode, we’ll review some common ones that you can try on your own items.  Even if your first step is just to make sure something doesn’t last from day 1 to day 10 of a sprint, it’s an improvement.   Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host Diana Larson & James Shore - The Agile Fluency Model Explained Cory Bryan - Priority Picking Principles Mike Cohn - Advice on How to Split Reporting User Stories Richard Lawson - Patterns for Splitting User Stories

  Do Product Owners need to have estimates? If you’re like most people, it’s been an assumption we’ve had for a long time that of course, we need estimates. There is, however, a growing movement to get away from being estimate driven and to focus on more valuable things.  So what exactly is the #NoEstimates crowd on about, and what might we PO’s need to do to understand and support it? On this episode, we welcome Ryan Ripley from Agile for Humans to talk about his view of what it means to not be led by estimates and how to get there.   Feedback: twitter - @deliveritcast email - [email protected]   Links: Co-host Post - Looking for a co-host Ryan Ripley - Twitter - @RyanRipley -  - Twitter - @agileforhumans Ryan Ripley - AFH 020: #NoEstimates with Vasco Duarte Ryan Ripley - The #NoEstimates Movement - #Path17 Barry Overeem - The #NoEstimates Movement Matthew Heusser - Why your execs don't get agile and what you can do about it Don Reinertsen- The Principles of Product Development Flow
