What does a Product Owner do?

A Product Owner is the guiding force behind a product's success. They act as the voice of the customer, ensuring that the product aligns with their needs and desires. They collaborate closely with development teams, prioritize features, plan releases, and set goals with agility in mind. In an agile framework, Product Owners play a pivotal role, breaking down complex projects into smaller, achievable components. They keep a keen eye on user stories and provide clear, concise direction to create a product that's both customer-centric and adaptable to market changes. Product Owners are the champions of the product and ensure that that value of the work being done is maximized.

According to Glassdoor (June 2023), the estimated total pay for a Product Owner is $115,772 per year in the United States.
