Noteworthy tools

There are some tools that make my job as a Product Owner much easier. My Top 10 and a bonus one:

Backlog

Jira – a very powerful tool for managing the backlog. There are plenty of integrations and extensions available. jira-logo

Balsamiq Mockups – for sketching user interfaces. Many UI elements ready to drag & drop and you can add your own too. balsamiq-logo
