what is a scrum product owner

DST Icon In cooperation with DasScrumTeam AG 

Have you already caught up on Scrum or XP or maybe even carried out an agile project, and thought, "Sounds great, but ...!" How can I plan the project? When will it be ready? How do I steer the project, and how do I negotiate with the team? How much will it cost? How should I submit an offer for the project? What do I do when price, time & scope are to be fixed at the project start? How do I deal with line management, reporting and other stakeholders within an agile project? How can I cope with my responsibilities as a Product Owner?
