Who Should Attend
This is an advanced course specifically designed for Product Owners and product managers who have practical experience managing or owning a product.
It is also beneficial to Scrum Masters and stakeholders who work with Product Owners. It is particularly beneficial for those with at least one year of building products with a Scrum Team.
The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging you to adopt several different Product Owner stances:
Customer Representative – focusing on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities.
Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster common understanding.
Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation.
Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with common purpose.
Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others.
Decision-maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions.
