Critical Factor for Agile Scrum and Expert Opinions to Make it Successful on iFour Techno Lab, July 29, 2020.
Collaboration Between the Team and Product Owner
“The biggest mistake most organizations make when implementing Scrum is thinking that becoming Agile is easy. As the Scrum Guide says, “learning Scrum is easy, mastery is hard.” Being Agile is adopting a new mindset built around the self-organizing and empowered teams. The Scrum practices are the scaffolding that helps a team become Agile and deliver incrementally and iteratively. But the magic is a collaboration between the team and product owner working closely together to deliver products of the highest possible value.”
