The Product Owner and the BA - Whose role is it anyway?

This paper was produced by David Beckham, Karen Lees and Debbie Paul following a BAMF workshop held in November 2017.

The trigger to run this workshop originated from the numerous discussions, blogs and comments that, increasingly, business analysts are being asked to perform the product owner role.

The BA Manager Forum took up the challenge to address this thorny issue. The BAMF event in November 2017 posed the question to its attendees:

"Should the role of Product Owner be part of the role of the Business Analyst?"

This paper summarises the discussions that took place during the workshop and the findings resulting from the group exercises.
