The Product Owner (PO) is a member of the Agile Team responsible for defining Stories and prioritizing the Team Backlog to streamline the execution of program priorities while maintaining the conceptual and technical integrity of the Features or components for the team.
The PO has a significant role in maximizing the value produced by the team and ensuring Stories meet the user’s needs and comply with the Definition of Done.
PO is a critical role, typically translating into a full-time job, requiring one PO to support each Agile team (or, at most, two teams).
This role has significant relationships and responsibilities outside the local team, including working with Product Management, Customers, Business Owners, and other stakeholders.
The PO is the member of the Agile team who serves as the customer proxy responsible for working with Product Management and other stakeholders including other POs to define and prioritize stories in the Team Backlog.
This allows the Solution to effectively address program priorities (Features and Enablers) while maintaining technical integrity.
The PO also attends the relevant Product Management events for planning and Program Backlog / Vision refinement.
