The role of the Product Owner has the ultimate goal of representing stakeholders to deliver value. A key attribute to achieving this goal is to be in tune with the Scrum Team to ensure they understand the items on the Product Backlog and get them to Done. In order to do so the Product Owner needs to:

-Be available to help clarify and negotiate to focus on getting to "Done"

-Set a vision and trust the Development Team with the implementation of the Product Backlog Items

-Bring stakeholders and the Development Team together to facilitate moves towards value

In this webinar, Professional Scrum Trainer, Rich Visotcky will talk through real-life examples of how an engaged Product Owner can generate the most value. He also will touch on examples of how a Product Owner can be overly present and cause more harm than good. The audience will learn how to strike the right balance in terms of the Product Owner's engagement with the Scrum Team.
