I think the problem is that as organizations mature and grow large
they develop into layers and they create structures that disrupt
communication between those layers. Prospective product owners who are
deeply insulated from the real customer and a lot of important guiding
information are kind of like empty seats.
I've come to refer to this kind of Scrum as dead reckoning. In
navigation that means the path the craft will follow under current
conditions if no one steers at all.
