  • Owns, manages and prioritises Squad backlog. Develops the acceptance criteria for user stories and works with the squad to ensure the criteria is met, whilst being an advocate for quality. 
  • Works closely with the Squad, constructively challenges, and provides continuous feedback to ensure the Squad continuously improves. Stays actively involved with the Squad through the delivery, supporting the different roles by answering questions, and clarifying requirements plus acceptance criteria.
  • Triages and understands live incidents and bugs reported by different areas, and makes priority calls based on impact and urgency, whilst leading on the appropriate next steps to resolution.
  • Manages dependencies in collaboration with other Product Owners and Scrum Masters, whilst having the confidence to cooperate and agree a way forward when there are dependency conflicts.
  • Supports the wider Change delivery framework, to ensure Change is well controlled, consistent, visible, and transparent to other stakeholders, whilst also managing risks, assumptions, issues, and dependencies.
