In some larger organizations, you may find that these two roles are split. And although I heavily disagree with this decision, they aren’t technically wrong. Truth is the founders of Scrum didn’t explicitly say that the Product Owner is the Product Manager. If they had, the role of a Product Owner wouldn’t be so ambiguous.

One of the Scrum values is “Focus” . It can make or mar a product. It brings direction to the development of a product – from start to finish; and is the back-bone of an effective business strategy.
The reasons for doing this are very similar to the reasons for splitting a product into features and epics, epics and features into user stories and user stories into tasks - breaking down a large problem into smaller chunks makes it more manageable and easy to predict.

This is not at all uncommon, just like riding a bike, it does take a little bit of practice (but once you get it – you get it). Writing user stories is dead simple if you follow these simple steps:
I recently described User Stories and the composition of a User Story Card – Card, Conversation and Confirmation. I’m not really sure if you would consider this user story example to be good, bad or indifferent – I guess it depends what you’re used to – but here is an example nevertheless! This is the front of the card.
1. Introduction to User Stories A good way to think about a user story is that it is a reminder to have a conversation with your customer (in XP, project stakeholders are called customers), which is another way to say it's a reminder to do some just-in-time analysis.
I’ve seen a lot of projects fail when by all accounts, they shouldn’t have. The reason for this nearly every time, was that the requirements gathering stage of a project was done poorly, or sometimes not at all.
One of the myths of Agile software development is that documentation is not required or useful.
