Season 6 Q&A

Speaking in Percentages?

EP117 [117] - Speaking in Percentages? When Product Owners start asking questions or talking about an activity, what type of questions do we ask? Are they open-ended, exploratory or curious ones, or are they binary quick answers with little to no requests for information? In this episode, we'll explore a small section of David Marquet's latest book and the implications it might have on how the PO's can change the way we search for better connections and data with our teams, customers, and products. Would it help if we starting looking for more probabilistic or percentage-based answers? Could we really make some impactful changes by rephrasing our questions?

PO Maturity with Bob Galen

Problem Depth with Ant Murphy

How much time do you, as a Product Owner, spend thinking about your user's core problem? How much time does the rest of the team spend exploring ideas and different approaches to solving them? Why don't you spend more time doing that? In this episode, we talk with Ant Murphy about some of the reasons that we need to spend more time, effort, and energy on the depth of our problem-solving. What would it look like if PO's and companies did go deep on understanding, iterating, and experimenting more? Our products will be better for it, users of our applications happier with it, and business will benefit more from it.

Cognitive Bias

The Product Owner's brain is a complicated thing. Some of the practices and patterns that we try to make it easier, can also cause us to miss some key elements or information. These Cognitive Biases show up in our shortcuts or established ways of thinking every day. It's important to understand, acknowledge, and find ways to counter those biases when needed. In this episode there are some of the main ones PO's might have themselves, see in others, and deal with during your work. Have one that you struggle with? Send it in.

BA to PO with Lisa Williams

A common career path when companies start to become more agile is Business Analysts looking to become Product Owners. Sometimes that's by choice and sometimes that is how the organization and teams first move towards using agile methods and practices. In this episode, we welcome Lisa Williams to the show to talk about how she went through that transition and how she has worked with teams and companies to move other BA's into the PO role. There might still be some places where BA's can work on agile or scrum teams successfully. Have any examples? Send them in.

BA to PO with Lisa Williams

Simplicity

A lot of PO's, teams, and organizations struggle with the principles of the agile manifesto. One in particular causes so many issues, that of simplicity. Adding instead of removing, more instead of less, trivial many over the essential few. In our products, systems, and structures you've seen the added parts that build more and more complexity and complications. Why do we collectively do that? What can you do to help simplify some of those items or start with a simple item to begin with. In this episode, there are some suggestions for how to engage your focus, some steps to work toward simplicity, and tips to keep it there.

Security with Jeff Payne

Another technical topic that PO's either get drafted into or need to know more about, is Security. In all its various forms, needs, and issues, Product Owners need more information about how to work with the team, organization, and users on having a solid baseline and making improvements. In this episode, Coveros CEO Jeff Payne joins to talk about how he has seen the PO help and hurt security efforts, some things to think about during planning and daily activities, and who to partner with to get better.

Lonely PO with Todd Miller

Even though you as a Product Owner are surrounded by teams, customers, and stakeholders, sometimes things can happen that leave you feeling like your all alone. It's a nasty feeling and not knowing who to turn to, who can help, and what to do next. A situation of isolation is something that POs can find themselves in for one reason or another. Todd Miller is back on this episode to share his stories and examples of when he was Lonely as a PO and what he did to find his way through that. We also talk about some studies and information on how some leaders find themselves or make themselves isolated and keys to eliminating that feeling of you against the world.
