Presentation: Is Product Owner the next title of a Business Analyst?

In Scrum, one of the most used delivery frameworks the Product Owner “is responsible for maximizing the value of the product resulting from work of the Development Team”.
The Product Owner is the key person responsible for managing the Product Backlog, Epics, User Stories and tracing these continuously.

The role of a Product Owner includes:

Detail orientated Product focus on building, testing & delivering;
Optimising the delivery framework process;
Aligning the Product vision into a team Backlog for development;
Championing customer needs for the development team;
Leading the Product Backlog, Epics & User Stories;
Prioritising the items in the Product Backlog to best achieve the vision;
Leading the value of the work the Development Team performs;
Enabling the visibility of the Product Backlog, transparency, and clarity to all, and shows what the Scrum Team will work on next; and,
Ensuring the Development Team understands items in the Product Backlog to the level needed.
