Measuring Success as a Product Owner

This is my slide deck when I presented in April 2015 at Agile RTP

When you are a Product Owner, you are balancing multiple areas as you go. Is your
biggest issue to deal with the product that is being delivered? Does your team have the right information to make progress? Is your customer on board with your methods and plans? What does IT/HR have to do with this?

It’s hard to know how you are doing or if you are making progress in the right ways. In this talk, Cory will show how he evaluates his current situation, determines what are some of the areas that need improving, and how to identify which areas are going really well.
