Once upon a time, Martians and Venusians met, had happy relationships together and accepted their differences to work towards delivering a project. Then came Agile and amnesia set in! ScrumMasters and Product Owners forgot they were from different planets. All of a sudden, Product Owners, ScrumMasters and the team members found themselves sitting around a table discussing user stories and potential solutions.
This unprecedented access and communication created a whole new set of challenges… Sometimes it feels like our team members are from different planets, as if one is from Mars and the other is from Venus. You may have heard of Mars and Venus in the bedroom but this presentation will be talking about Mars and Venus in the team room.
Based on my many years of experience in coaching and working with people in these roles, this presentation will describe why and how ScrumMasters and Product Owners react differently to various situations in a team room. The key is in understanding how ScrumMasters and Product Owners think and operate.
And if ScrumMasters and Product Owners are from different planets, does it make sense for the two roles to be performed by the same person? Or does every Agile team even need both of these roles? Attend this talk to find out!
This talk will further explore how we can counteract the differences in the communication, the emotional and the business needs of the two roles, and tips and techniques to promote a greater understanding between these two of the most important roles in any Agile team.
