Agile Product Ownership in a Nutshell

20172 ratings | 1913383 views
This is basically a 1 day product ownership course compressed into 15 minute animated presentation. There's obviously more to product ownership than this, so see this is a high level summary. For translated versions & translation guide, see http://blog.crisp.se/2012/10/25/henrikkniberg/agile-product-ownership-in-a-nutshell Special thanks to Alistair Cockburn, Tom & Mary Poppendieck, Jeff Patton, Ron Jeffries, Jeff Sutherland, and Michael Dubakov for providing many of the models, metaphors, and ideas that I use in this presentation.

I bought a cool half-acoustic guitar a few months ago and was looking for an excuse to make use of it :o) Tools used: Artrage (drawing program), Wacom Intuos 5 (drawing tablet), Screenflow (screen & audio capture).

Teaching agile product ownership in an agile way!:) Loved the video. I have been on many agile training lectures where the only thing the lecture lacks is agility. Thank you so much!

Wow! An amazingly clear and thorough presentation - and in 15 minutes!!! Of cause, there is more stuff to the PO role but this is great for hitting the ground running. Thanks so much. Do you have any more videos on this?
Richard Bourke (2 months ago)
One huge (common) mistake in the video: you can only use past velocity to predict the future if: 1. No one leaves the dev team; and 2. No one joins the dev team; and 3. All leave (both planned leave and unplanned leave) is known in advance. Anyone who has been in the industry a while knows that those three cannot be known in advance, and so prediction is only possible a short distance into the future. Never make long term predictions like implied here.

So what exactly are stories, concretely? And what does the dev team actually do with them? Do POs only work on IT related projects or could they also be working on physical product development?

Hi, I'd like to add closed captions and subtitles to this video, but it's not enabled. Would you enable this so we can contribute and make this video even more valuable than it already is?
Vivek Upadhyay (6 months ago)
Good video Henrik...gr8 👍
4:20 "that's a hard job" That's a huge understatement. This person must be a business expert(as in, the product knowledge), an excellent analyst and a marketing expert. And you need to perform an analysis almost on the fly, without weeks or months of research. It's almost impossible, and rare people who meet these criteria probably have something better to do.

Developers ... please become aware that business has now made you into a dispensable commodity, which can now easily be shipped oversees or anywhere at the organization's whim. You thought becoming a full stack developer made you a better employee? No, no no. Becoming full stack made you replaceable with other full stack developers. You are now a semi-well defined commodity which can be hired part-time or on contract. The day is emerging where you have limited power and authority in your given organization. Since what you learn is to be transferred and shared with the team, the organization benefits from your self study and transmit your knowledge into a collective pool of information; consequently, devaluing you in the process. I'm hoping more devs realize the power-shift Agile has made over the years. Think about the other jobs which can and have been grouped into pools of workers of similar skills, for the completion of a common task. First that come to mind are laborers and blue collar workers. Agile is a tool/framework organizations can use to treat developers as a herd of skilled labor, replaceable at anytime, by nearly anyone else in the pool. This does not bode well for salaries.

Valter Silva (7 months ago)
I enjoyed watching this explanation very much! Well done! However, somewhat I feel confused after I've been on the IT market for nearly 6 years, I feel Agile became something entirely different of what it was supposed to be. For instance, in your explanation a role is missing, the Business Owner, which should help to define the "Business Value" points, and define acceptance criteria as well. However, in my experience, I never saw a business owner, so the PO performs the BO as well, maybe to save money?! And when you take a certified exam and answer what you have experience the so called "Agile", you got it wrong! So, in summary, Agile is adaptable to every scenario and every company treat it differently, according to their needs, budget and personnel. When I'm talking about "Agile" it might be different for you, but we share some common ground, of course. But it doesn't make my or your answer wrong, just different experiences and points of view.

Excellent ! Cristal clear. Bravo Henrik ! Would you mind if I'd translate in french (as close as your way - which was fine for me ; - ) for my team-mates in french polynesian governement ? We're doing a little revolution by delivering faster regular usefull stuff with this concepts but we still need to explain and share, as PO's, the vision. Your visual presentation has it all, it's bright. So thank you for that and please please, let me put french on it.

Henrik, many thanks, I love this video. I've watched it several times, and it still seems to me current and relevant. Even so, one thing that I keep thinking is...As the video is almost six years old now, would you change anything in it? Is there something you've learned that changed your view about the product owner?
Robert Betlejewski (3 months ago)
​@Henrik Kniberg I just wanted to ask about it (multiple PO and PB) but you are quicker than my thoughts. thank you for video and this answer!!! A W E S O M E!
Henrik Kniberg (7 months ago)
Yeah, I would rename it so it doesn't sound like it's just about the PO. And I would change the last bit about scaling, and suggest a single PO for multiple teams instead of one PO per team.
