6:30PM-7:30PM: Kramer explains Why Your Product Owner Keeps Ditching You
Vanishing Product Owners is a growing—and disturbing—trend for Agile teams. Missing key Agile events/ceremonies, failing to approve built stories/code, not making decisions, not sitting with the team, not engaging with the team—what’s going on? If we don’t get this critical role realigned with our efforts, Agile will be impossible to evolve. Find out what’s causing your Product Owner to ditch the team...and what you can do about it.
