Arguably the most challenging role on the Scrum team is that of the product owner (PO). The PO is responsible for the product’s return on investment while providing direction and priority on the product’s features. In order to be effective in the role of the PO, a new skill set is necessary to teach the tools of the trade for agile product management.
In this course you will learn how to play Innovation Games™ to understand the desires of your customers for your product. Determine and prioritize features based on both subjective and objective (defensible) strategies, and properly interact and work with your team, ScrumMaster, and stakeholders within the Scrum framework. This course is full of practical, real-world techniques that you can implement immediately at your workplace.
