As a Senior member of the Informatics Team, the Program Product Owner is expected to take a lead role in waters Agile Transformation through driving strategy and alignment across the Program Team.

The Program Product Owner is responsible for articulating the overall Vision of the entire Program Team, the Waters Informatics business and across the wider corporation. The Program Product Owner will define the strategy to align, focus and manage the individual Product Owners to meet the goals of the Program.


  • Program management activities: As Program Product Owner the key responsibilities of articulation of a clear and unambiguous shared vision for the program that aligns with current Informatics and Waters strategy are of foremost importance. As the departure of the former program product owner has the potential to be disruptive for the Brasov teams it is keenly important that the individual in this role be able to garner the respect of the teams and lead.

  • Product owner leadership: The NuGenesis program requires product owners for the product's base kit (SDMS, data adapters and customer upgrade migration) and option kit (LMS, Stability, and connectors). Product owners in these areas require mentoring and proper guidance. Leadership to the Individual Product Owners in the adoption of best practices, drive toward predictable continuous delivery, and driving to a culture of continuous improvement is required.

  • Interface with project management and engineering: Accurate data and information about deliverable product prioritization must be provided to allow Project Management to pro-actively monitor for risks and dependencies across the Program. This includes the regular participation in program leadership meetings and decisions. The program product owner also manages escalations and concerns raised by the Individual Product Owners. The interface with engineering is focused on maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency across the Agile teams.

  • Interface with Customers, Field and Marketing: Maximizing stakeholder engagement and support of a robust and sustained Voice of the Customer program is required. Unlike the situation where Garrett led both the internal engineering interface and was the primary marketing resource for the program, now these functions require an effective interface. It is expected that the person in this role will collaborate and partner with Informatics Product Marketing to position Informatics products that positively impact and add value to Waters customers. This includes maximizing visibility and transparency into the process of managing enhancement requests in order to engage and build confidence and trust with Field and Marketing Groups.
