Product Elevation Meetup - How Product Ownership Kills Agile At Scale

Being a Product Owner should be a rewarding and challenging experience when you are able to execute the role in such a way that allows your organization to grow, the teams to be truly self-managing (in the way agile intended) and to develop a product that customers and users alike love.

Sadly, in many organizations, this is a goal and not a reality, but why? When the role of Product Owner meets the (let’s say, traditional) needs and expectations of an organization the role often loses the fundamental characteristics and responsibilities that make it so powerful.

In this talk, Ben will explore some of the most detrimental systemic effects that can arise when the role is not understood correctly or carried out poorly and how these effects can destroy any dreams or success when attempting agile at scale.
