Here is a list of criteria that a blog post should meet in order to be published on Lean Product. In no particular order:

  • Must provide practical value.
  • Opinions are welcome, especially if based on experience or accompanied with examples.
  • No BS. Sometimes we do it without knowing it; It’s normal. Sometimes t’s an integral part of achieving clarity. The articles need to be reviewed for BS before posting.
  • Use of the word “leverage” is not permitted. The only exception is this post.
  • Discrimination of any kind is not going to be tolerated; This applies to all the content, including the comments.
  • Minority views, contrarian views, skepticism are all welcome as long as they adhere to the other guidelines. Diversity is encouraged and welcome, it leads to innovation.
  • If possible, a fun, entertaining read is better than a long, serious dissertation.

Thank you for a great article. I enjoyed following your thought process especially the part about the product definition. Recently I tried to address a similar topic by trying to enumerate things that every product manager (or product owner) should know about their product just to provoke some thinking. The part where I can't quite follow you is when you look to the process for the answers about Product Owner antipatterns (How to address these issues with Scrum). The anti-patterns are real and painful and you described them well. In my opinion, the solution for these anti-patterns is not in a process of any kind, including Scrum. In fact you have the beginnings of the answer in the section about Product Goals. Perhaps another article?
