Why should I get a Product Owner Wingman?
  • you just don’t have time to do all the things that a Product Owner is expected to do
  • you want to grab one of your colleagues and say “how would you approach this situation” or “in my shoes would you do option A or Option B”, but don’t have someone to ask, your Product Owner Wingman is that person.
  • you are relatively new to the agile world and don’t have deep knowledge of the way in which a PO can determine the success or failure of a project.
  • You seem to be in conflict with the delivery team a lot: they keep telling you that you haven’t done this or that, or that you need to do something sooner than you want.
  • You are “going along” with some processes that the team is asking of you, but you don’t really believe in them.
  • You need some help to perform all the things that are being demanded of you
  • you feel like you are spinning your wheels and wish the team would just get on and deliver your product
  • You believe the team is ‘having a lend’ when they tell you how long it’s going to take to deliver your product
