Engagement + Availability = Trust
I am tempted to just post the above with nothing more, but of course there is more to being a successful Product Owner than this. That said, engagement plus availability are certainly key! Not only should the Product Owner be engaged and available to the customer or stakeholders, but also to the development team that is actually making this product possible. Keep in mind, in this post I’m referring to the Product Owner (PO) being product management in the software development world. I’m sure some of this applies to the marketing world or other, but I’m no expert in those areas.
