About the Book
Product Ownership is more than just a single role on a team. Product Ownership is a set of skills, a large set of skills at that. A skill set that includes Agile and draws heavily on Business Analysis and Product Management. Every team should have a product owner - and probably no more than one - but other members of the team need the skills of product ownership, both the share the work of the product owner and to do do their own roles better.
The first part of this book discusses the role of the Product Owner - what the product owner does, how they relate to other roles, why they are busy people and why every product owner is different. Next the book looks at the tools used in Product Ownership, tools which product owners and others will use to build valuable business products.
This book is a companion volume to Little Book of Requirements and User Stories.
