Imagine: You are about to form a new feature team that is composed of bright, cross-functional experts, self-motivated and self-managed. They all worked in Scrum settings before and are fully supportive of Agile principles. The organization they work for is properly structured and it nicely supports the adoption of Agile/Kaizen culture.
Imagine that the team interfaces with an experienced PO who comes from an end-user community, has a lot of client-facing product management experience, fully understands principles of Agile product development, does not tolerate waste, appreciates benefits of incremental value delivery, is fully empowered, and knows how to effectively partner up with technology. . . .
