Tactical product owner

From Pearl Language

collaborative product discovery of a large product or product portfolio in a complex and layered organization.

The work is simply too much for a single product owner. Finding or training a good product owner is hard and expensive.

Arlen Bankston explains: tactical product owners focus on productive product creation:

  • One per team
  • Write or lead development of detailed User Stories
  • Lead analysis and refinement activities to get user stories ready to build
  • Make development team- and sprint-level prioritization decisions
  • Focus on product backlog and sprint planning meeting (for scrum teams)
  • Realize the product, including operational rollout and documentation
  • Address market opportunities
  • Collect and process customer & user product feedback
  • Optimize feature set within set pricing constraints

Current business analysts can evolve into agile business analysts and become excellent candidates for tactical product owners.

Therefore:

Split the single product owner into a strategic product owner and tactical product owner. For successful collaborative product discovery distinguish between but do not separate these mutually reinforcing roles.

Sometimes, these roles are named chief product owner and product owner.
