In Product Ownership in the Wild, I describe four common product ownership models. This post takes a look at some of the issues that arise in these models.
What's the best way to interact with your delivery team?
You can get a lot of value out of having big items on your backlog (ie features) because you can get a broad view of the overall output you might need to deliver without having to dive into detail on any one particular item too soon.
At some point, though you do need to dive into detail on something in order to start delivery. Feature refinement provides a way to do that in a way that allows you consider options and focus on the essential aspects of the feature and discard the aspects that aren’t completely necessary.
Internal product management is when you satisfy the needs of users internal to your organization in order to achieve business goals.
