The next event in our Become Agile Leader serie is certification of product owners that will be provided by Robin Dymond.

The course will be held in Bratislava (Slovakia) on May 7-8th.

About course

In this two-day class we cover your role in creating a successful product using Scrum. The Product Owner creates the product vision, sets the product goal and leads the effort to transform the vision into a successful product. The Product Owner steers and guides the Scrum team, bridges the gap between customers, business and development, and is responsible for reaching the product goal and return on investment (ROI).

Through simulations and exercises, you will learn how you can leverage Scrum to optimize value creation and customer satisfaction. You will learn how to create a product vision, create and manage the product backlog, prioritize the product backlog, create a realistic release plan, and progressively refine requirements. As a Product Owner your responsibility is to ensure value is delivered early and often. How do you make this happen? This course will also teach you the mindset to support, advocate and implement incremental delivery into production. Scrum transforms the way work gets done, and the Product Owner plays a key role in transforming the business to support regular delivery of value to your customers.
