In this series I aim to put a Product Owner perspective to the elements of the Scrum Guide. Where else can we start then at the definition? We’ll discover the most important elements for a Product Owner and what they mean in practice.

During Scrum2017 I hosted a workshop about Product Backlog Management. It seems people are eager to learn about it, since it was fully booked!

We had a great session in where I shared a lot of information (perhaps a bit too much), and also received a lot of great feedback and input from the audience. At the beginning of the workshop, I shared my personal vision: "Create, develop, train and coach the best possible Product Owners".

Building a team manifesto with ‘That guy, this guy’

Every time a new team is formed, it takes time to grow from a group of people to a well-functioning team. In their journey to become a high-performing team, they need a shared understanding of the principles and values of each individual and the team. The most important principles and values can be summarized in a team manifesto, a social contract among the team members. A team manifesto is always built by the team itself. It contains a set of norms, values and behaviors that forms a solid ground for collaboration within the team.

With every team I coach, one of the first things we do is building a team manifesto. Recently, I did this by using the Retrospective format ‘That guy, this guy’. The results were great! Therefore, I would like to share this workshop format with you.
