This is a book for people who want to take their Product Ownership Skills to the next level. I would also recommend it for Scrum Masters who coach Product Owners. What I particularly like about the book is - similar to the book Scrum Mastery - Geoff's approach using "good to great". Even as an experienced PO myself I saw at many sections, that I am rather in the good dimension of Product Ownership and how I can move to great
From Good To Great Product Ownership
Much has been written about how to follow the Scrum process but one of the keys to success is in the leadership skills of the product owner. Product Mastery explores the traits of the best product owners I know, offering an insight into the difference between good and great product ownership and explaining how the best product owners are DRIVEN to be successful. In a follow up to the hugely successful Scrum Mastery, Geoff Watts shares more enlightening case studies on how to be go from good to great. This is essential reading for anyone involved in an agile product development effort as it will teach you how important it is to be:
- Decisive with incomplete information.
- Ruthless about maximising value and minimising risk.
- Informed about your product’s domain.
- Versatile in your leadership style.
