In order to survive in the context of the current complex and dynamic (VUCA) market, organisations must be able to become agile and sustainable. This asks for a new way in which organisations are structured and involves a new way of working with in an agile way and frameworks like Scrum. In this training we teach you provide you with a deeper awareness of product management within the scrum framework.
The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviours and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviours by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances.
The product owner advanced training leads to a unique certification that combines agile principles and scrum practices with deepened knowledge about product vison, delivery, release and stakeholder management.
The course goes beyond the topics explored in the basic Product Owner class by deepening the attendee’s understanding of the role through the exploration of the many stances of a professional Product Owner.
This course is an interactive, experiential workshop where attendees explore topics through a series of exercises and discussions. The training is useful for anyone who wishes to validate their advanced knowledge of Product Ownership, the Scrum framework, and delivering valuable products. Those who pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized certification to demonstrate their mastery of the content.
