A product owner is a person who always knows what’s the next turn that the product should take to succeed. Valor’s PO will help you transform your product vision into user stories and ensure your solution moves towards higher user satisfaction and draws new loyal audiences.

As a product usually has several stakeholders who have their vision and might emphasize different aspects, PO comes for help. Valor’s experts will synchronize all the product goals and define a shared vision.
In the face of PO, you have the one who devotedly monitors users’ satisfaction. Through early user interaction studies and A/B testing, Valor’s product owner constantly defines the way for product evolution and advocates customer interests to the team.
The backlog with high-priority user stories is another place of action where Valor’s PO performs. Together with the Scrum Master, they groom the backlog items and prepare the board for upcoming sprints.
The product owner cares to increase the value of the product for users and the business. Valor’s PO quantifies the ROI of new features as well as sales and marketing activities to optimize budget distribution and maximize product worth..
Sometimes priorities for the project shift, but the dev team doesn’t have sufficient detail to take the new part of the work into the sprint. So, the PO balances new requirements with the original product vision and transforms them into a clear goal.
PO oversees sprints, monitors the amount of value delivered, and suggests improvements to the process. On the other hand, the product owner shields the team from business influences and requirements engineering. Learn more about the benefits the PO role brings to the project from the blog.

No project is the same, so we pick the approach to project management that will suit your product best. This includes the choice of PM and configuration management tools, frequency of syncs with the stakeholders, optimal sprint duration, etc.
Valor’s PMs have the skill and experience to evaluate the importance of every product feature and the effort for its implementation. For sure, communication is the essence of their job, yet managers contribute to the project with technical advice and add to the team's self-sufficiency.
Need a brief update regarding the project or a particular task? – Turn to your PM! This person has daily meetings with the team and knows every project detail. Also, through measuring team progress, PMs are always aware of possible bottlenecks and how to make things spin.
With proper docs, you can always check if the project requirements are fulfilled and track who and when added changes. PM will help you boost project traceability as he or she creates and constantly refreshes project materials.
It’s well-said that you should manage change unless it manages you. Valor’s PMs have their fingers on the pulse of change requests, adjusting the project scope and deliverables correspondingly. From now on, every change request is noted and processed.
