The Product Manager is the voice of the customer and is a crucial member of the Agile Scrum Team to ensure that products and features are executed according to the product vision. The Product Managers key responsibility is the product backlog and the prioritization of stories and defects. The Product Manager is responsible for the role as, “Product Owner” in the agile scrum team. As Product Owner he is empowered to accept new stories and defects into any given development sprint cycle.
The Product Owner is responsible for working closely and directly with the Senior Product Manager and other stakeholders as needed to define, prioritize and execute solutions that address the needs of a product. The Product Owner is co-located with the Scrum Team allowing for excellent collaboration, product management and quality. The Product Owner will have the ability to present effectively and clearly on any new product or feature launch. As the voice of the customer the Product Manager/Owner will still be required to travel, observing our market landscape.
