Help! My Product Owner is 'Wrong Way' Peachfuzz!

Captain “Wrong Way” Peachfuzz was a character on the animated TV program Rocky and Bullwinkle. Probably the most incompetent sailor that ever lived, his crew considered mutiny, but instead installed a dummy control room, so that Peachfuzz would think he was in command, while the crew actually controlled the ship from below deck. How would you know if your Product Owner is steering you towards disaster? Even if they are, what can you do about it? In this session: • We'll have 5 volunteers from the audience to come to the front of the room and assume the roles on a Scrum Team: Product Owner, ScrumMaster, and 3 Developers. We can also add Line Manager. • Each player will be given a secret goal, a way of being that will impact their interactions. • Using a fictitious project with pre-prepared Scrum artifacts, they will run through a couple of sprints, using the Scrum ceremonies – Daily Scrum, Sprint Grooming, Sprint Planning, etc. • We’ll see if the audience can spot the warning signs, and discuss ways to correct course.
