Topic: „A Product Owner with a failure and how to mend them“ (#Agile)
We shall explore the differences between a Product Owner and a Product Manager? How should, from a successful product management perspective, an ideal product person look like and what skills do they need to have?
Once we have dissected the ideal product person, we need to ask ourselves, is there such a person and can we find them and attract them to come and work for us. Finally, what happens if we cannot find the ideal candidate and how can we develop a person into a successful, full-stack product person.
Key takeaways, after this session you should have a clear understanding of what is required from a product person, what are the challenges with this role in real life, and you will come out with a clear idea on how you can approach solving the problem of having a product person with an incomplete skill set.
