What tools you will need as a Product Owner in Software Development?

As a Product Owner ou will need some tools that will allow you to communicate with your team and monitor their work. Have a look at what kind of tools can it be, and how the team prepares them for your software project.

It is worth to notice, that the below-listed tools are very common, but they are not the only ones. So don’t worry if your partner would offer you different ones. Just make sure, if they meet your needs as a Product Owner.

✔️ Jira

Jira allows to plan, track, and release software projects. With Jira, you can create user stories & issues, plan sprints, and distribute tasks across your team.

✔️ Confluence

The team sets up a page for your project on Confluence which is a tool used to help teams to collaborate and share knowledge efficiently. Users can create pages which can be commented on and edited by all members of the team.

✔️ Slack

Slack allows users to communicate through channels organized by project, topic, team, or whatever you will need. For example, at Droids On Roids, we usually use e-mail communication for reports or sending longer pieces of information, and Slack for every-day discussions and instant messaging.
