Is Product Owner role clear ? Discover the 8 stances of excellent PO !

The Digital Catalysts found out when helping teams going agile that the role of a Product Owner is often misunderstood by teams and PO themselves ! 

Our consultants also used to help teams by using the 8 stances of ScrumMaster game (thank you Barry Overeem 🙂 )

Product Owner Roles good

1- Why such a game ?

In our daily professional life, while helping teams, we always face issues and conflicts between Product Owners and Teams.

We solve these problems by catalyzing transformations and getting a Product Culture.

Explaining the role of the Product Owner is real issue we faced. We imagined this game on the same type of the ScrumMaster stances game.

2- Roles of Product Owner and our Toolkit

As the original for the ScrumMaster roles, we splitted in two parts : the stances we believe the Product Owner should have, and the stances the PO should not be having.
