IT SAP Product Owner

About our partner:
The purpose of the Product Owner is to maximize business value provided by the product or service to the customer.
In order to achieve this purpose, the Product Owner uses empathy to bridge the gap between the team that delivers the product (or service) and the customer. As opposed to taking orders from the customer and telling the team to deliver what was asked, the Product Owner tries to extract what is truly needed to the customer. Successful Product Owners will collaborate with multiple teams and stakeholders in order to mitigate risks that can impact bringing value to the customer. Additionally, Product Owners must work closely with Project Managers to understand the business value of features and stories being brought to the team so they can be prioritized alongside other work to enable project delivery success.
While it’s the Scrum Master’s goal to make a great team, it’s the job of the Product Owner to create the backlog that maximizes value with minimized team effort; it takes both roles combined for the customer to receive value.
