Topic Overview:

A Product Owner has the power to champion a great Scrum Team, or defeat them.  A great PO provides crystal clear direction and distills competing desires into laser focus, not just for the team but also for the enterprise.  A bad PO can perpetuate chaos, misdirection and confusion.  This meeting will focus on this key Scrum role.  Alan will guide a discussion about the Product Owner role.

- How is the role defined?
- Job and focus of the Product Owner
- ScrumMaster and Product Owner interaction
- What do the Product Owner and the Team developers owe each other?
- What works for you?

Please come with your own input to this discussion.  We hope many Product Owners will be in attendance too.  Scrum is not just for the ScrumMasters!

Speaker Bio:  Alan Dayley

Alan has been doing embedded development for nearly 20 years, in projects ranging from built-in and production test to embedded application firmware and embedded product user interfaces.  His awareness of information flow between people drove him to rediscover Agile principles as a means of revealing enterprise impediments and creating high performance teams.  A Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Scrum Practitioner, Alan now works on integrating Agile further into the enterprise, coaching in Agile for an engineering department designing next generation SSDs and continuing a grass-roots Scrum introduction he started over two years ago.
