In this talk, the network had a guided discussion about the popular approaches for scaling product ownership with program and portfolio analysis. The network discussed rules of thumb in scaling the backlog and who should fill what roles. And, finally, shared how using models can help in understanding dependencies and value across all levels of the enterprise.

Candase Hokanson is a senior product manager at Seilevel and a PMI-Agile certified practitioner who trains and coaches product owners, scrum masters, and business analysts on agile approaches, as well as championing products in those roles for clients.
