A well-formed product backlog is an important tool for sharing user needs and priorities with an Agile team. It is also an essential tool for product owners in helping them make appropriate planning decisions and for effectively managing emerging requirements. 

User stories and user story maps provide a quick way of capturing customer and stakeholder requirements without creating expensive (and often rapidly outdated) formal documentation. 

Through capturing user and business needs in the form of user stories and by  prioritizing them in the backlog by business value, product owners help Agile teams focus on delivering the right solutions at the right times. 

Collaborative requirements elicitation also helps ensure that technical teams are fully engaged in finding the optimal solutions to business needs.
