    Awesome episode. It's so easy to let the basics slip when you're under pressure to release. I've just reminded our guys I haven't seen an end of iteration demo for the last 3 iterations. Knuckles rapped - especially mine.

    A good overview of some problems in scrum here. The only thing is that I don't believe is that a product owner can be someone just plucked from another department. A PO is more than just someone with domain knowledge, they need a fair chunk of skills and knowledge associated with the role of a BA too.

    With a decent product owner, you wouldn't need to bother the stakeholders very often.

    Good video.

    However, I couldn't get it to work at all in Chrome (played for 6 secs) Only IE was truly smooth.

    PO needs 3 things. Authority, Time, and Product knowledge

    Very well said about the practical problems that we are facing regularly during the product development. Thanks for this awesome video.

    Always having this idea in mind: "Learning to say -NO-, earlier, will reduce future trouble in saying -YES-" Nice job, Jay Gavren, those examples seemed to be my daily issues!

    Thanks for the informative video! Very useful knowledge.

    Title should be changed to say "Scrum" instead of "Agile", particularly since the content is littered with references to scrum terminology. For example, the agile manifesto makes no reference to the concept of timeboxing (ala sprints or iterations), though they are a centerpiece of scrum. Not a fan of the "best practices" concept either, as different environments/contexts require different approaches. Better would be a survey of various practices that work within given contexts.

    Nicely done well said. I have personally witnessed many of these issues where Scrum Best Practice Principles were not followed. Especially in regard to Testing.
