Software development is frequently discussed from a project management perspective, focusing on knowledge areas, challenges, specific business cases. In this presentation, we want to discuss Agile Software development from the Product Owner perspective, his/her role, profile, performance and challenges.

Agile software development describes a set of values and principles for software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organizing cross-functional teams. It advocates adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change. These principles support the definition and continuing evolution of many software development methods. The term agile (sometimes written Agile) was popularized by the Manifesto for agile software development, which defines those values and principles. Agile software development frameworks continue to evolve, two of the most widely used being Scrum and Kanban. The project team structure is comprised of different roles and the product owner is the most strategic. The product owner is responsible for representing the business in the development activity and is often the most demanding role. There are several challenges for the PO to properly perform her duties and to improve the chances of continuous success. 

This webinar aims to:

  • Review concepts of Agile Software Development and the structure of an Agile Development team;
  • Discuss tools that are strategic to the agile process;
  • Discuss specifically the role and challenges of the Product Owner.
