Problem Bag:

We have a Product Mgr who’s supportive of Agile in theory, but wont do the work we need him to do. How do we manage that? eg not being available for to discuss stories (often away) & the highest priority work is the customer who screams loudest… rather than product progression, we do a lot of tweaks & minor bug fixes. Yes we do showcases, after each 2 wk sprint. Alternatively, is that a problem, or are we as a team expecting too much? (just to turn it around!) 🙂 – Phil Kan
