Topic: How Scrum Supports the Enterprise. The role of the Product Owner

Product development is a strategic exercise and decisions regarding what functionality to include ultimately impacts the very nature of the organization that builds and maintains the product. In order for the Product Owner to create the Product Backlog for the Scrum team to work on it is necessary to know where each requirement fits into the corporate vision, whether or not there are alternatives that may be better or cheaper, what other projects within the greater enterprise may be similar so as to avoid duplication. 

Scrum does not take into account any of this, because it is not meant to manage any of these issues. Scrum is meant to support a build and release process; which works fine as long as you know what you are doing before you start. 

In order to support the work of the Product Owner you also need a management structure to make the strategic decisions that allow the Product Owner to create a product backlog that will add value to the organization by lowering costs, lowering rework, and producing a product that fits the goals of the enterprise.
