The Product Owner, or PO, role is rooted in the Agile methodology, alongside Scrum Master and the Development Team - the triumvirate of Agile. Many of the most successful and innovative companies in the world rely on this methodology to develop their products. The likes of Microsoft, Google, Ericsson, Philips and Spotify, to name a few, have been using Agile for many years, to deliver at scale across their organisations. However, the role of the PO doesn't have to be limited to this environment. The skillset required can be useful across any organisation, irrespective of whether they have adopted Agile or not.
