Let’s say you’ve got a problem you’re not quite sure how to solve, or have an idea for a solution and you want to test it. Normally, in an Agile environment, you’d validate your idea by building a mini version of your product, launch it, measure the results and then take those learnings to iterate and improve the product right?
In short, the Product Owner is the role you play within the Scrum team; Product Manager is the job.
In Scrum, the Product Owner is the person who is responsible for: Defining the product backlog and creating actionable user stories for the development team to deliver; Grooming and prioritising the work in the backlog; and Accepting the completed user stories to make sure that the work meets the acceptance criteria agreed…
The line between design and front-end is often one of compromise. The impact of those compromises comes back to how well a designer and the person implementing the design communicate.

Dual Track Agile is an agile software development and organisational model that separates the effort to discover the best solution from the effort to deliver working software. It consists of two tracks of activity: discovery and delivery. This sees a bringing together of Lean UX and Agile Scrum delivery.
The objective of the discovery track is to validate ideas quickly and efficiently, while the objective of the delivery track is to build, test and deploy production-ready code. By leveraging Dual Track Agile, teams are more focused, reduce their rework and significantly improve their ability to plan while still retaining their agility.
True collaboration between companies and their clients is achieved by Customer Success Managers who are able to strengthen the relationship bond between the two. There’s nothing better than a person who has the interested of both sides at heart, and who is able to facilitate and communicate this successfully.
