Product Owner · June 2021 – Present
As a Product Owner, I am responsible for defining and writing stories and tasks for members of our scrum team. I also prioritize the backlog to enable myself and the team to perform fast and efficient sprint sessions such as grooming & planning. In addition, as a Adobe Experience Manager SME, I liaise with the UX team and other stakeholders to make sure they are aware of the scrum teams capacity and AEM's limitations. This includes keeping stakeholders up-to-date on component functionality and enhancements planned for future sprints in a scaled agile environment.
