A good product owner is:

  • Committed – success for the product, together with the team is their sole focus
  • Responsible – skin in the game makes sure we take no bad risks and strengthens commitment
  • Authorized – mandate is essential to enable learning and agility (light weight decision making)
  • Collaborative – collaboration is essential for success; with Stakeholders as well as the team
  • Knowledgeable – to have success in a complex environment, (business) domain knowledge is key. Have it or learn it asap

Another gem from Lyssa Adkins Coaching Agile Teams. Just <3 that book!
