In Scrum, the one responsible for representing the customer and organizing the backlog so the team can bring the customers needs to life; is known as the Product Owner. Often times the Product Owner’s role is a solo act, where they individually work to represent the business’ needs to the team. In reality, one of the most important aspects of successful Scrum teams is the collaboration and unity between the Product Owner and its testers.
A more collaborative model, followed by some Scrum teams, allows testers to define and refine requirements carried over from the backlog to be implemented and urges Product Owners and testers to work in a communicative and mutual manner. It also provides testers with the opportunity to demonstrate completed features to customers.
