Though no scrum experience is required, some experience with managing projects is helpful. It is encouraged that participants arrive well rested and prepared for a full day of fun and interactive learning.
This course focuses on one of the key roles in Scrum – the Product Owner. The Product Owner is tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, and the one who ultimately determines what gets built. This hands-on workshop provides the Product Owner with an experiential learning environment for techniques on making the right product decision, building the right features and incorporating feedback to satisfy customers. Product Owners will receive practical, applicable advice and skills that they can apply to their own projects and teams.
Upon successful completion of this course, each participant will receive a two-year membership with the Scrum Alliance and will also receive the Certified Scrum Product Owner credential.
