*** Quote of the Month ***


The [Product Owner] role is still incredibly broad, incredibly nuanced and incredibly challenging for a single individual to do well. I've probably met 2-300 product owners over the last five or so years and I think perhaps 3-5 of them were doing an outstanding job across all the aspects of the role. So we’re still not setting up the Product Owner role (and the individuals) within it for success.

*** Books ***


The Rise and Fall of Software Recipes

His name is Darius Blasband and he is a codeaholic. This is how one of the first chapter of the book The Rise and Fall of Software Recipes is titled. You should therefore expect to read this book as a conversation that you could have with a colleague in his 50s around a glass of nice (Belgian) beer. There are some recipes and a lot of software in this book, but everything is written from a very personal point of view.

Read the review and quotes from The Rise and Fall of Software Recipes.
