When working on a digital product, the Product Owner and Scrum Master should work hand in hand as driving forces of the project. However, it’s not always the case and collaboration is not always as seamless as we would like it to be. Additionally, the remote work conditions are not making anything easier for such duos. In this session, we would like to share some of our experiences, good practices and tips related to collaboration of Product Owner and a Scrum Master. The story is based on a partnership between Boldare, the digital product development company, and OliveTree. Both companies jointly developed an MVP app and have learned some insights, had some entertaining stories and new questions about the role of Product Owners which we hope to discuss in this panel.

Come meet and hear from the Boldare and Olive Tree speakers, and learn how Scrum Master can support Product’s Owner in the quest of delivering the best digital products.
