Hone Agile Product Owner Behaviors that Lead to Marketplace Winners
Organizations pour vast resources into building new products and services. Yet too many are poorly conceived, don’t delight (or even satisfy) customers, and fail in the marketplace. The solution is more effective agile product ownership and product management. This book is an expert guide to the behaviors, stances, and practices of world-class agile product development, reflecting deep in-the-trenches experience from world-renowned experts.
Chris Lukassen and Robbin Schuurman introduce powerful tools, ideas, and skills for delivering superior products and services, and for avoiding pitfalls that keep you from seeing what customers really need and want. Learn through a start-to-finish, Scrum-based case study, drawing on concepts the authors created for their breakthrough Scrum.org Professional Scrum Product Owner-Advanced (PSPO-A) training course. This innovative approach has already helped thousands of product owners excel--and it can transform the way you create products.

-Replace negative product owner behaviors with approaches that lead to excellence
-Represent customers more empathetically and effectively
-Connect customers, values, and features more coherently
-Tell better stories, set clearer goals, and create more valuable roadmaps
-Innovate business models, run better experiments, and scale products more successfully
-Make more successful decisions, involve the right people, and rely on better data
-Become a great agile collaborator, across governance, budgeting, contracting, and beyond
-Influence customers, users, stakeholders, and teams to improve your overall effectiveness
-Optimize every organizational role related to product ownership
