Book of the Week:
[callout]The role of the Product Owner is more crucial than ever.

In The Professional Product Owner, two leading experts in successful Scrum product ownership show exactly how to do this. You’ll learn how to identify where value can be found, measure it, and maximize it throughout your entire product lifecycle.
