Responsibilities:

In an agile environment, drive the entire product lifecycle: functional and non-functional

integration, launch, and production support.
Execute upon established internal product ownership processes for release vision, estimating,
planning, execution, and reporting (iteration plans vs. actuals).
Refine underlying feature requests from multiple sources (e.g. marketing, customer engagement,
solution hosting teams, and internal engineering), to recommend alternative technical and business
approaches. Then lead the engineering efforts as the product owner to meet aggressive timelines.
Create, maintain and own all the user stories (functional and non-functional) which resonate with
business leaders as well as engineering teams. This includes breaking-down work into logical
functional groupings to enable the team to deliver the highest business value early, and often.
Clarify, prioritize and drive product commitments, as well as establish and maintain a clear chain of
accountability, to deliver product releases according to schedule.

Address bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, balance the
business needs versus technical constraints, and encourage risk-taking behavior to maximize
business benefit.
Effectively manage expectations and resolve conflicts that balance customer needs, the Amdocs
brand, and technology needs. This requires making hard, high-judgment trade-offs between feature
richness and speed-to-market.
