What teams are telling us they need from their POs and I’ve got the data to prove it

1 enterprise, 2 agile release trains, 20 scrum teams, dozens of POs, hundreds of developers and survey responses over 8 quarters.

I asked every team member three simple questions at the end of each quarter.

1. How likely is it that you would recommend this Product Owner to another Scrum Team?

2. What do you think this PO did well?

3. What do you think this PO could do better?

 

The data from Scrum team members tells an interesting story about what team really want from their POs and how regular feedback for POs leads to improved scrum performance.
