Characteristics of a Great Product Owner
The Scrum Guide doesn't provide a complete list of the skills required for any of the accountabilities on a Scrum Team. Instead, the Scrum Guide simply states that the Product Owner is responsible for maximizing the value of the product resulting from the Scrum Team’s work. How this is carried out varies based on the individual, the company and even the product. And yet, there are some characteristics that are consistently found in great Product Owners.
In this Scrum Pulse webcast, PST Mary Iqbal explores the accountability of the Product Owner and walks through characteristics of an effective Product Owner.
