21-04 | From first idea to successful product

Product owners can visualize a world that others cannot (yet) see. Their vision goes beyond customer demand, and predicts what the customer needs in the future. Having a big vision is an exciting place to begin, but to achieve that future it’s crucial to know what concrete steps need to be taken to move from MVP towards delivery.

Whitepaper: Succesful and happy product owners

Good product owners are scarce. In 2022, there is an enormous demand for people with experience within a certain sector and who have the demanding list of skills that are required of a product owner. Moreover, product owners know better than anyone how to find out what is required from the business, and gradually convert a vision into reality. That is why they must be able to do their work motivated, effectively and enthusiastically. In this whitepaper we give 8 tips on how to do that.
