#10 - Don’t stop questioning

"Various practices exist to forecast progress, like burn-downs, burn-ups, or cumulative flows. While proven useful, these do not replace the importance of empiricism. In complex environments, what will happen is unknown. Only what has already happened may be used for forward-looking decision making." - Scrum Guide 2020

#5 - Just Say No!

"The Product Owner is one person, not a committee. The Product Owner may represent the needs of many stakeholders in the Product Backlog. Those wanting to change the Product Backlog can do so by trying to convince the Product Owner." - Scrum Guide 2020

It's easy to say Yes to everything but as a Product Owner we have to maximise value. The team is empowered to say No to maintain quality.

#4 - Risk is the water in which the agile fish swim

"Shorter Sprints can be employed to generate more learning cycles and limit risk of cost and effort to a smaller time frame." - Scrum Guide 2020

Working in shorter iterations generates more learning cycles and limits risk.
