Title:20 Product Owner Interview Questions and Answers

Here are some of the common and most important questions you should ask prospective product owners. We will divide the questions into segments: Segment 1: Product Owner Role These questions are meant to get a grasp of the candidate's understanding of the job responsibilities. 1. What do you expect from this job as a product owner? The question is supposed to be an opening question that lets the candidate provide an overview of their exposure. It would tell you how prepared the candidate is for the interview and how much of an expert they are in their field. Each answer to this question will be different depending on the industry, company, and products. However, there are some commonalities you should look for. A few keywords you should be looking for include sprint planning, sprint retrospective, grooming, and sprint review. If the candidate mentions these activities, you know they have the relevant knowledge and experience. 2. Do you think it's a good idea to have one person performing both the Scrum Product Owner role and the Scrum Master role? It’s essential to get an idea of how well the candidate understands the entire product development process. This question is the best way to figure out how well the candidate understands their role compared to other roles. Unless the candidate has a really good explanation, the answer should be "no". Scrum masters and product owners have different responsibilities, and mixing them will always have a negative impact on the development process. The Scrum Master acts as a mediator between the product owner and the development team. Therefore, if the same person plays both roles, a conflict of interest would arise. 3. Do you have experience working with a Scrum framework? Every product owner needs to have a basic understanding of the Scrum framework. The answer to this question will give you an idea of how well the candidate understands the framework. Their knowledge of the framework can be a baseline on what you can expect from the product owner. Answering the question would be different for every product owner, but a few elements should remain the same. For example, Scrum is an incremental way of providing value to the end-user in a timely manner. The answer should revolve around this particular statement. Furthermore, if the product owner describes the origin of the framework, that’s even better. The candidate should also mention the three fundamental roles that come along with it. To be more specific, they should understand the product owner, Scrum team, and the Scrum Master role. 4. What other product discovery frameworks have you worked with? Scrum is the most widely used Agile software development framework, but that doesn't mean it is the best model for every situation. If the potential product owner has experience with Kanban or Waterfall, for example, that's going to help them make a judgment of the best approach to take in each circumstance. Segment 2: Engagement with External Stakeholders The following questions help the hiring managers to understand the level of experience that candidates have in conducting interviews and getting feedback from users. 5. Who do you consider to be the most important product stakeholder? One of the most important things to establish is whether the product owner understands whom they’re targeting. Their job requires them to understand the external stakeholders and develop the product accordingly.
