March Meeting | Proxy Product Owner: Pitfalls & How to Avoid Them

NOTE: Due to St. Patrick's Day, the March event is taking place on Wednesday instead of our regular Tuesday

Organizations are starting to recognize that they need to provide support for the product owners if an agile team is going to be successful. Increasingly they are turning to a Business Analyst to provide that support. This is opening up some exciting opportunities, but it comes with pitfalls.

Join us for this month's meeting to learn about the pitfalls, discuss the solutions, and leave prepared to succeed.

You'll learn to:

  • Identify the difference between the product owner vs proxy product owner role
  • Understand the pitfalls of the proxy product owner role
  • Learn strategies to address these pitfalls
