Product Owner’s is a multi-faceted role. A PO undertakes a range of responsibilities like maintaining product backlog; prioritizing items as per business value or return on investment; conveying vision and goals to the team, engaging customer, participating in scrum ceremonies, monitoring product progress, liaising with team for effective delivery and so on. Product owner’s role becomes all the more challenging, when, in some cases, a PO needs to wear various hats, that of a Business Analyst, Tester, Scrum Master to that of a Project Manager, Key Communicator and so on. Type of product, product lifecycle stage, project size, domain knowledge of the team are various factors which govern what all responsibilities a PO needs to shoulder. Hence it can be said that path to effective product ownership is full of traps and pitfalls. This session attempts to showcase some of the common mistakes, which Product Owners commit and challenges they face. Awareness of these common mistakes or lessons learnt will help PO’s to prevent such scenarios. This “Not-To-Do List” will help Product Owners deliver their projects more effectively.
