The Product Owner plays a very crucial rol in the success or failure of each Scrum team. As a consequence lots has been written about what makes the ideal product owner. However, in most cases and especially in very large organizations, the team cannot get to choose their business/stakeholder representative and you have to make do with somebody who does not understand their role or has trouble with their responsibillities. In this talk we will first explore a number of different generalisations of Product Owners that are out there and, more importantly, what makes Product Owners tick. Then we will address a number of different issues. Like the things you can do as a Scrum team member _yourself_ to help the Product Owner be better at his/her role. And how to address critical issues like technical debt without losing the transparency in your process.
