|Title||LUNCH & LEARN – Speaking with the Experts – “De-mystifying the Product Owner Role”|
|When||April 13th @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm|
This fun and engaging presentation (complete with dancing and fireworks) will explore the product owner’s role within an enterprise. Joey will break down where theoretical concepts stop and the pragmatic reality of enterprise constraints begin. Examples of obstacles and challenges will be shared along with the attempts to navigate these difficulties (with varying degrees of success). The conversation will culminate with a generous allotment of time for q&a to maximize the value returned to the participants for their invested time.
