In this episode of The Agile Coach, Pabitra talks about identifying the anti-patterns for the different roles in a scrum team. She dives deep into the usual anti-patterns observed for anyone in a product owner role so you can identify these and get rid of them as early as you can. Tune in to find out the common signs of these anti-patterns and the most effective solutions you can apply.


  • The primary roles of a product owner
  • Common anti-patterns for the product owner role
  • Having multiple decision-makers for one product
  • Not knowing when and how to step away from your role
  • Product backlogs not being ready
  • The better practices for a product owner


Pabitra - When product owners step into the role of a scrum master:

“If they take the role too seriously and don't necessarily understand that a scrum master is not necessarily a project manager or manager for the developers, this can backfire and they mind end up being more controlling and interfering more than helping the team.”

Pabitra - A solution for backlogs not being ready:

“As a product owner, you always want to be thinking ahead. If the development team is working on starting user stories for whatever time box your company may have, you want to be thinking about the next sprint or iteration.”
