What Should Be The Focus For The Product Owner?
via Scrum.org Blog by Magdalena Firlit
The most straightforward answer would be – value, of course!
But how do you reach it?
Large numbers of Product Owners begin their work by creating requirements. In some situations, these scopes are dictated by others. Their work mainly consists of describing demands, thus apparently appearing as a scribe in their role.
On the “what ground” these items are ordered in the Product Backlog?
Unfortunately, more often than not, this order is based on “it seems to so..”; “I was told..”; “this is what my stakeholders want..” and such.
How to create valuable requirements?
Start with a vision. Each Product Owner should be driven by vision and be able to inspire an organization and teams that are developing a product. A product vision should be short, understandable, inspiring, and describing necessary information about the product.
