Abstract

Agile work organization methodologies are popular with companies focused on software development regardless of their size. In large-scale environments, Agile with associated roles is often tailored. This tailoring is projected into the large-scale agile frameworks, among which the Scaled Agile Framework is the most popular. As one of the challenges with Scaled Agile Framework adoption, satisfying the requirements of the Product Owner role was identified. However, any empirical research on the Product Owner's function in SAFe is scarce. This paper presents the preliminary results from the single-case study on Product Owner role activities in Scaled Agile Framework. During this study, the focus group consisting of 7 Product Owners generated a list of 62 activities they are regularly involved with. Results indicate that Product Owner's duties and responsibilities in SAFe seems to be only partially aligned with the existing knowledge but doesn't provide enough data to understand the day-to-day Product Owner activities.
