"When the Product Owner is resistant to the process, it can make the project more difficult...While it may feel risky to be open and vulnerable, the payoff is worth the risk"
"The focus was all very positive, but constructive at the same time. We were all building each other up and encouraging one another while getting clear on how we can 'crush it' better in our business"
"If we worked like this, we would get so much more done."

What's Different?
Agile promises better products, but most product people were thrown into a 2-day course and then declared to be a Product leader.
They learned a lot about leading an Agile team, but they didn't learn anything about how to lead a product.
And because the Agile transformation was led by IT, it remains focused on getting the process right.
Becoming a true product team requires
  • Having a customer mindset instead of a process focus
  • Developing a problem-orientation instead of jumping straight to solutions
  • Having the courage to think differently than most Agile teams
