Roadmap Remote Project

“A Product Owne, it’s most beneficial form acts like an Entrepreneur, like a ‘mini-CEO’. The Product Owner is someone who really ‘owns’ the product. This is something quite different from a project manager (PM) or business analyst (BA) role, where ‘the business’ typically ‘owns’ the product and where the PM or BA act more like a proxy between the (project) sponsor and the supplier (IT for example). The Product Owner as an Entrepreneur owns the Product, the Product Vision, the Product Roadmap and the Products’ budget. So ideally, the Product Owner is profit-and-loss accountable for the Product.”

  •  - First things first; the Scrum Team & the product vision

    As a Scrum Product Owner, I only need one thing in order to get started, which is my Scrum Team! I'll need someone to help me guide the process, coach you and your team and to solve impediments, which is my Scrum Master

    All team members have a chance to understand the planned project scope. This involves a few questions being answered.

  •  - Team building and working methods.

    A team works at eye level and solves tasks together - that is the big difference to a group in which tasks are distributed and ticked off. In the kick-off it is therefore important that the team finds itself.

  •  - Subject matter introduction to the project

    In the subject kick-off, the product owner or project lead presents the vision and goals to the team.

    Now that a roadmap and story map are created, it's time to design a Sprint Goal. The Sprint Goal is very helpful, because it provides the Scrum Team with a lot more focus.
