Effective product ownership allows you to focus your team on outcome over output, build shared understanding, and make sure decisions get made. These activities are key to building the right thing and not building things that aren’t needed. When your teams are separated from each other, or your Product Owners are separated from your teams, those activities become more difficult, and more important. This webinar will include six tips you can use to practice effective product ownership in a distributed situation.
