Scrum Agile Project Management

Examining the Product Owner Role

As with everything else related to agile, the nature of the Product Owner role, and whether it is needed or all, depends a great deal on context. As teams discover this, it leads to some common questions: What do Product Owners really do? Do we even need Product Owners?

This presentation examines the Product Owner role and attempts to answer the above questions. Kent McDonald shares his experiences and gives you a chance to share your perspectives with each other. By the end of the video, you’ll have more insight into the Product Owner role and how it applies (or not) to your situation. After all, the only consistent answer to the above questions is “it depends”.
