Regis PMI South Roundtable (Virtual) - Product Who? Who is that Product Owner?

Power Skills

Event:Regis PMI South August 2022 Roundtable (Virtual)

Date/Time:  August 24, 2020 / 12:00 - 1:30PM MDT

Topic:  Product Who?  Who is that Product Owner?

PDU Categories/Hours:  Power Skills (formerly Leadership) / 1.5 Hours

Synopsis of Session.  It is continual work to balance titles but, too many times, a Product Owner (PO) is not seen as a role with the true value they can bring forward. More companies are beginning to understand the value, but it is also a transition for Product Owners to transcend from yesterday’s definition to the position of value they achieve today.

Because of the limited definition, too many POs are seen more as administrative staff that “owns” the paperwork instead of a true Product Master, similar to the Scrum Master, that owns the communication branches which defines the product/result requested by the Stakeholders.

Learning Objectives:  The presentation will cover

  1. the high-level growth in the PO position,
  2. demonstrate how to share the partnership with the Scrum Master and Stakeholders, and
  3. extrapolate on some of the detail power the PO can exercise.

The PO owns the Issues/Stories and the Kingdom of Communication where the Issue/Story transcends from the problem of today to a priority location on the Roadmap that leads the Team and Organization to the success of tomorrow.
