Unfortunately, I found many bad Product Owners in Chile so I thought that hiring a Product Owner would be a local issue but after talking with Greger Wikstrand, @GregerWikstrand (he is from Sweden and works as CTO in Capgemini) I have realized that many places are struggling to have a good Product Owner.

After writing many articles on my blog www.mariolucero.cl about the role of Product Owner and some anti-patterns from it, I decided to write a short book to point out the issue of having a good and full time (yes, the Product Owner must not have another position) Product Owner.

I think you are wondering about the title of the book. What is Mario talking about? Well, everybody knows Scrum Master as a servant leadership but for me I have another name, the Agile Anti-Manager. This name is thanks to one developer that used to work with me a year ago. During that time I have to fight (in a good way) with an IT director to get good chairs (in fact, I have got one chair because most people thought that as Agile Coach I was a manager haha), better laptop, free breakfast and other staff to improve the working conditions to team members. Once a guy called Andres suggested to me that I was the Agile Anti-Manager. I asked him why he was thinking in that way. He responded to me: because you had requested many things for us and none for you!!!
