Certified Scrum Product Owner
Taking on the Scrum team’s Product Owner role can be a daunting prospect. The Scrum Product Owner role is crucial to the team, acting as the liaison between the development team and the wider customer community. The Product Owner can help maximize delivery capabilities, enhance the planning and scheduling process, improve project estimating and drive overall product success.
This two-day, highly interactive course investigates the Scrum framework in detail from theory and foundations to practical application and pitfalls, covering all the team roles, activities, and artifacts, but focusing specifically on the role of the Product Owner.
The course incorporates the latest ‘training from the back of the room’ learning techniques and avoids death by PowerPoint!
