The Agile Process — Meet the Product Owner

The Product Owner’s responsibility

  • Defines and maintains the requirement (story) backlog
  • Prioritizes the requirements
  • Defines the criteria for completion of a requirement
  • Understands the release timelines from the team
  • Is the team having the same level of understanding of the requirements as they have?
  • Will the team deliver the project by the committed timeline?

Ensuring The Requirement is Understood

  • Review the test plan
  • If a test plan does not exist — look at the test cases created for the individual stories.
  • Even that may not be meticulously followed — create test assertions

Test Assertions

Adherence to Delivery Timelines
