So - I'm a SM - my Product Owner likes to organise refinements in the morning. His logic is that such meetings at the beginning of the day don't collide with a thought process when a developer is in the middle of something during the day. This makes sense for me.
However, such meetings sometimes collide with the Daily Scrum. Not often enough to actually change the daily time (or place), but often enough for me, because many times people tend to forget about this and miss one or another meeting.
I confronted the PO about this, and my argument about reducing the complexity, was deflected with "people>process".
How to tackle this situation?
