Is there a Cookbook for how to mix BA + RE to receive a well prepared and perfect PO?
For a long period of time the discussion has been going on whether a PO needs support from a BA and/or a RE. Isn’t it rather the case that a good PO has to be the perfect mixture of a BA and a RE? Or is it impossible to include all those skills in one person? Shouldn’t we prefer the change from I-shaped People to T-shaped People, not only within the development team, but also for POs?
Goal of this insight of our journey is to transport how BA + RE changes in an agile mindset/Framework. We will draw a picture of a PO, which combines characteristics of a BA and a RE and discuss, if that’s the route to go. We will transfer the I-Shaped properties of a BA + RE into agile and explain the need of T-Shaped PO´s in a cross-functional team.
