"A Golden Partnership - PMs, BAs, and POs" presented by Peter Monkhouse and Joanna Tivig of NewGenP

Organizations need great products to implement their strategy. They also need products that meet customers’ needs and demands. One of the challenges organizations have is how to align the roles to better execute strategies and produce more value for their customers. This presentation will explore the roles of project managers, business analysts, and product owners working together in partnership through the project and product life cycles.

We will first define the roles of project managers, business analysts, and product owners’ roles and their interactions, then we will discuss how the roles fit into the product life cycle, to deliver value to customers. We will present the iterative product development approach through an example and why this approach is key to delivering value to customers. Then we will show how project managers, business analysts, and product owners support each other in the iterative approach to ensure appropriate stakeholder engagement and communications and getting feedback from customers. Through continuous feedback, integration, and product improvement will result in products meeting customer needs and organizations achieving their strategic objectives.

This virtual presentation has been designed with interactive discussions and activities.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe roles of Project Managers, Business Analysts, and Product Owners on projects
  • Apply the three roles to an effective iterative product development cycle
  • Understand how the three roles need to work together to improve communications and gather customer feedback.
