Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Product Owners are vital to a great agile team. They cast a vision, set a direction, and bring clarity. We look to them for answers, but how do they have those answers? Through the relationships they build.
In this workshop, we explore Product Owners in their own universe: who do they relate to, what do they need from others, and what do others need from them. What gravity pulls them, and those around them. You will be moving around, meeting your fellow attenders, looking inward, and relating your experiences in order to create this picture of the product owner's universe.
This session is primarily for product owners looking to explore their role and build empathy for other project members, as well as coaches looking for ideas on growing stronger product owners.
Learning Outcomes:
  • 1. Key relationships for product owners
  • 2. Expectations for and from product owners
  • 3. How to have empathy for the other roles in an agile project
  • 4. A new workshop for coaching product owners in their role
