What Product Owner is busy with during Sprint?

Though Agile Scrum has just three roles - Product Owner, Scrum Master and Developers, but the roles and responsibilites of each one can be very confusing at times. One of the most frequently asked question is "what activities a product owner engage during sprint?"

Answer: When sprint is in progress, Product Owner would usualy be busy grooming prodoct backlog, answering queries from development team (if any), talking to stekholders (dont forget- he is adding new items to product backlog, re-prioritizing items etc....so he needs to talk to stakeholders), and may help with some early testing and provide feedback as well.

Scrum Team v/s Development Team

Lets understand what are Scrum Team and Development Team in three easy steps -

1) Scrum Team consists of three roles - Product Owner, Scrum Master and Developers
2) Every team member (apart from Scrum Master, Product Owner) in Agile Scrum is called a Developer (regrdless of their skills - tester, analyst, architect, SME, etc etc)
3) Group of Developers is referred to as 'Development Team'
