- Communication with clients, potential users, stakeholders;
- Prioritizing the tasks to best achieve goals and missions;
- Managing software requirements;
- Making sure everyone on a team has a clear understanding of the Product Backlog and its items.

Product Owner: Local vs Remote?
Product Owner is a professional who on the one side communicates with clients and stakeholders and on the other plays a crucial role in organizing teamwork. So if you have a remote team, you can go for any of these options. Choosing on-site cooperation will give your Product Owner the opportunity to communicate with clients and stakeholders directly. While having a remote Product Owner gives your offshore team the opportunity to communicate with Product Owner on a daily basis whenever they need a clarification.
When Is It Better to Have a Remote Product Owner?
If your local Product Owner produces high-level requirements that aren’t detailed enough—you’ll definitely need to have a remote Product Owner. Offshore Product Owner will be capable of specificating requirements and making them more understandable for your remote development team. Your remote Product Owner will also make sure the team works on the tasks that are of the highest priority as for the current moment and that everything is finished on time.
