Hey everybody! We’re back with freshly recorded insights and practical tips for Product Owners. This time we chat with Robbin Schuurman who shares practical insights and tips from his own experience as a Product Owner, Professional Scrum Trainer and Agile Transformation Lead.

 

In this video we discuss one of the most important skills of a Product Owner when working with Stakeholders: saying no. Robbin is working on a book featuring 50 shades of ‘No!’ together with Willem Vermaak. As a sneak preview, Robbin shares two of the shades of ‘No’ with us. And more importantly how they will help your mandate and Stakeholder collaboration as a Product Owner.

This Episode is the first of a new experimental format: we have a longer, in depth audio recording, and somewhere in the middle of it, we put a short focused topic, which is also released as a video. If you want to learn more about Robbin’s experiences, tips & tricks, please check out the FULL podcast interview on iTunes or in Soundcloud:

In this full interview we discuss many more topics, ranging from Scrum Team collaboration to Stakeholder management to Value steering (closing the feedback loop by implementing metrics and end-user validation).  Also, we discuss the relevance of Scrum for non-IT environments with some examples. Finally, Robbin shares his highlight of the Scrum Guide, as well as explains why he loves his Apple products so much & what Product Owners can learn from Apple.

We aim to continually improve this series, therefore we highly value your feedback.
