This is a good question that we have been going over. Since the Product Owner in our part of the world is an account manager with P&L responsibilty we have agreed that a PO is someone who has to face our President and CFO and explain how things are going as well as explain to the customers and clients how we can meet their needs.
Our job then, can be defined as making sure the PO has everything we can do that will provide her honest, ethical, and reliable information to work with. This does not include 'good' or 'positive' news just the above.
