Multiple Product Owners with Competing Priorities

Recorded by Dave Prior

“How do you coordinate work across multiple Product Owners within a single organization when they are all working on different parts of a larger thing, the PO’s have each been given different priorities, and they are all competing for the same resources (people)?”

That question came up recently in one of our Certified Scrum Master classes and this week in SoundNotes Jeff Howey joins Dave Prior to talk through the different “opportunities” this scenario presents. As they unpack the different facets of it they offer suggestions and ideas that could help the organization cope with it, and, ideally, introduce changes to alleviate some of the things causing this situation to exist in the first place.
