Product Owner

A product owner ensures their products offer optimal value to potential customers. Though the role can vary from company to company, product owners usually lead each product development cycle. Early in a product’s lifecycle, they might strategize business value, collaborate with designers, analyze the competitive landscape, and define the marketplace. Once a product is released, they might interface with customers, gather feature requests, schedule new releases, and coordinate sprints. (Linkedin.com)
