Certified Scrum Product Owner

Have you already caught up on Scrum or XP or maybe even carried out an agile project, and thought, "Sounds great, but ...!" How can I plan the project? When will it be ready?

How do I steer the project, and how do I negotiate with the team? How much will it cost? How should I submit an offer for the project? What do I do when price, time & scope are to be fixed at the project start? How do I deal with line management, reporting and other stakeholders within an agile project? How can I cope with my responsibilities as a Product Owner?
