Mike Vincent just pinged me about a new user group he is running in SoCal dedicated to sharing ALM best practices particularly around SCRUM and Agile.  http://www.socalteamsystem.org/

His next meeting is on:

The Scrum Product Owner - Big Responsibilities

There are three fundamental roles in the Scrum method of agile software development: the Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the team. The Product Owner is the one person responsible for a project’s success. In this session we will take an in-depth look at the role of the Product Owner. We'll focus on how to wring more value out of the project, product or service using agile processes, specifically using the Scrum framework.

We will touch on value driven development, product management, requirements management, release planning, and managing total cost of ownership.
