What Is Logient’s Product Owner (PO) as a Service Offering?

What Is a Product Owner (PO)?
A product owner, also called a PO, has a clear vision of the product affected by your project, what needs to be accomplished and how it needs to evolve. The PO is responsible for the success of the product at all stages of its design or modification.
Generally, this resource has strong entrepreneurial skills and is a visionary decision maker. As a business expert, his good technical skills allow him to maximize the value of your product. He or she is also the owner of the SCRUM and/or Agile work framework and states the definition of ready and the definition of done, the DOR and DOD. Responsibility for the framework rests with the product owner, but the execution and redistribution of project tasks remain variable depending on the decisions of the project team.
The product owner ensures that the product vision is understood and put into action, thereby maximizing return on investment. In addition, he or she actively participates in retrospective sessions, makes sure to maximize the ROI of a feature as opposed to its impact on the product, what would be the options, the approximate cost and if there is a cheaper workaround in order to make decisions based on results. In a context of agility, the PO sometimes plays a role similar to that of an analyst in determining and describing business needs. The product owner (PO) also takes care of feeding the project backlog for the next sprints.
In short, the product owner is the representative of the client’s needs within the project!
