The Napoleon Corporal

In my previous post, Replacing Backlog Grooming, I wrote about leveraging a Product Owner (PO) Team instead of the “Scrum” team in Progression Workshops (backlog grooming). It doesn’t matter if you’re doing textbook Scrum or something at scale. Your people still need a shared understanding. If not, you’re going to start seeing a lot of delays and a lot of rework.
