Who is the manager of Scrum?

Scrum does not have a manager in the conventional sense but has key roles with specific functions and responsibilities. These are the Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Development team.

There should be no situation in which any of these roles assign tasks. Reference: “Responsibilities and skills of the Product Owner role in Scrum“,

What is User Story?

User history is usually the simplest possible requirement for a particular functionality (or function) of a product. It defines what action or intention the consumer wants to achieve and why it addresses a need, core value, or goal derived from experience. History must also provide business value, something that is difficult to quantify but can be qualified at the level of history, function, epic, or version. The most commonly used standard format for creating a User Story is:
“As [a user persona], I want [to perform this action] so that [I can accomplish this goal].” Reference: “What are the responsibilities of the Product Owner role?“,

Consumer history is a short and informal description of a consumer’s need. The story helps teams understand what is important to consumers and businesses before considering how to implement it. Satisfying customer needs does not always require certain product functionality, which must be justified in a development task by the team.

What is the difference between the value for consumers of a product and the value of the product from the point of view of its owners?

Value for consumers can be any convenience, utility, and provision of some social or professional benefit to consumers, while the value for owners is measured in some profit or benefit – financial gain, economic or marketing benefit.

How often should the Product Owner role guide the Development team on how they should do their job?

The Scrum Product Owner does not guide the team on how to do their job but focuses on what is more important to do first.

What does prioritizing work mean?

Defining and focusing on important tasks or which part or functionality of the product is of greater value to the customer and should end first.

Why should the Scrum Product Owner role prioritize work?

This is the main responsibility of this role. The Scrum Product Owner communicates with the customer and is best acquainted with what is most important to him and the requirements for the product/service.

Why can stakeholders stop working on a product when, in terms of planned work, the product is not ready yet?

Because what is currently being developed may no longer be of value to the final product or the customer. In this case, the team should stop working, despite what was originally planned.
