Scrum products

A scrum product is an arbitrary classification that represents an item under development.

A product organizes themes, epics, and stories of similar functionality into a single context. Stories represent the work required to build the product. The list of stories in a product is referred to as the product backlog. A product owner is responsible for keeping the product backlog organized and for selecting the stories for a particular release.
