How does a scrum master facilitate great product discovery sessions?

In traditional #projectmanagement, it is often a team of #projectmanagers working with senior managers and customers to identify what needs doing and within what time and cost constraints the project must be delivered within.

After that, it’s delegated to teams of people to get the work done and the proverbial whip gets cracking. Often, the people doing the work are not part of the discovery process nor do they make decisions about what might be the best way forward for the project.

In #agile and #scrum, it is critical that the experts who do the work or solve the problems are involved in product discovery. In fact, we couldn’t think of anything more valuable than connecting the customers who have the problem with the experts in our organization that are the only people who can solve their problem.

In this short video, John McFadyen explains how a #scrummaster can help facilitate great product discovery sessions.
