Good day,

Ive been assisgned as a SM for a fairly new scrum team.  This new team comes with a lot of bad practices, most of them because lack of knowledge of what they actually need to do.   

I would like to suggest some good reading for Product Owners and Development team, if possible in spanish.

Can you please recommend some books so they can understand that their role is about from scratch

Juan, sorry I didn't see this but you should look at The Professional Product Owner: Leveraging Scrum as a Competitive Advantage by Don McGreal and Ralph Jocham. I don't think it's in Spanish yet but it is a great book.

Thanks, Lars, very interesting book. I guess this book definitely will help to prepare for PSPO 2.
