By creating and communicating a clear vision, the product owner focuses the efforts of the team upon delivering the best possible value for the market. Working closely with both the market SMEs and the delivery team, they bridge the gap and ensure the product design and performance is right.
To achieve this, they must have deep knowledge of the Epic they're responsible for owning (e.g. Submission) and provide proactive stakeholder management.
They will need to understand how the product is being developed and delivered, although training on project methodology will be provided.
