You'll also set and track business, customer and performance KPIs and NFR targets with the team as well as being accountable for backlog initiatives from conception, through delivery and into the customers' hands.

To do this you will need to be able to clearly define the scope of any change, translate customer and business goals into well written user stories, prototypes, user flows, design mock-ups (with design team) and leverage customer testing (where appropriate) to ratify your approach. Your deliverables will be to a high quality that will enable a seamless transition into development.
