Finally, the EAT must set up and support a corresponding Product Owner organizationthrough associations of PO’s that mirror the SoS’s and scale their PO functions. Theseteams of PO’s and key stakeholders are known asMetaScrumsOutputs/Outcomes of the Scrum Master OrganizationThe SM organization (SoS, SoSoS, and EAT) work as a whole to complete the othercomponents of the Scrum Master Cycle:Continuous Improvement and ImpedimentRemoval, Cross-Team Coordination, and Deployment.The goals of Continuous Improvement and Impediment Removal are to:·identify impediments and reframe them as opportunities.·maintain a safe and structured environment for prioritizing and removingimpediments, and then verifying the resulting improvements.·ensure visibility in the organization to effect change.The goals of Cross-Team Coordination are to:·coordinate similar processes across multiple related teams..
·manage cross-team dependencies to ensure they don’t become impediments.·maintain alignment of team norms and guidelines for consistent output.Since the goal of the SoS is to function as a release team, the deployment of productfalls under their scope, while what is contained in any release falls under the scope ofthe Product Owners. Therefore, the goals of the Deployment are to:·deliver a consistent flow of valuable finished product to customers.·integrate the work of different teams into one seamless product.·ensure high quality of the customer experience.Product Owner CycleCoordinating the “What” – The MetaScrumA group of Product Owners who need to coordinate a single backlog that feeds a Scrumof Scrums are themselves a team called aMetaScrum. For each SoS there is anassociated MetaScrum. A MetaScrum aligns the teams’ priorities along a single path sothat they can coordinate their backlogs and build alignment with stakeholders to supportthe backlog. MetaScrums hold a scaled version of Backlog Refinement.·Each team PO (or proxy) must attend·This event istheforum for Leadership, Stakeholders, or other Customers toexpress their preferencesThis event occurs as often as needed, at least once per Sprint, to ensure a Readybacklog.The main functions of the MetaScrum are to:·create an overarching vision for the product & make it visible to the organization.·build alignment with key stakeholders to secure support for backlogimplementation.·generate a single, prioritized backlog; ensuring that duplication of work isavoided.·create a uniform “Definition of Done” that applies to all teams in the SoS.·eliminate dependencies raised by the SoS.·generate a coordinated Release Plan.·decide upon and monitor metrics that give insight into the product.MetaScrums, just like SoS’s, function as Scrum teams on their own. As such, they needto have someone who acts as a SM and keeps the team on track in discussions, and asingle person who is responsible for coordinating the generation of a single ProductBacklog for all of the teams covered by the MetaScrum. This person is designated astheChief Product Owner.
