  • Meet regularly with stakeholders to identify business needs.

  • Clearly communicate those business needs to a development team through user stories and acceptance criteria.

  • Work closely with the ScrumMaster to establish Release/Sprint backlogs, resolve impediments, and provide direction on scope of work to be accomplished.

  • Work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders, as well as the product development team during the development cycle to ensure the customer needs are being met.

  • Develop product roadmaps.

  • Review and evaluate work done by development team to ensure proper scope has been met.

  • Lead the demonstrations to stakeholder and report on the results of each software iteration.

The ability to be adaptable and to work constructively with a technically diverse team is also crucial. A willingness to learn and stay abreast of industry trends is also required. The program emphasizes innovation, and CACI looks for individuals who can bring creative ideas to solve complex problems, both technical and procedural.
