The Scrum Product Owner: How I Accidentally Became One

June 10, 2020

A few years ago, I became a Product Owner. But not in the traditional ways most do. I had a need for a software solution to a data management and reporting problem. I wanted to analyze data about my training business and spreadsheets were becoming difficult to use and manage. Since I have a background in software development on a non-eventful Christmas day, I opened Visual Studio and started coding.

In this talk we’ll cover the spectrum of product owners from backlog secretary to Product Owner visionary. I’ll share my experience training Product Owners and what I have learned by actually being one. (Recorded live at a recent virtual People Side of Software meetup).

Presented by Robert Pieper, CEO Responsive Advisors With his optimistic attitude, Robb has taught and coached thousands of people on agile frameworks and practices. He specializes in executive and management training and coaching but stays passionate about building solid relationships and teams. He keeps first things first. His main objective is ‘make it mistake-proof.’
