Certified Scrum Product Owner course and Project Start up Workshop - RTP!

Date: November 14-16 - 3 days inclusive, 2012

This two day course satisfying the Certifed Scrum Product Owner training, plus an extra day of our unique "roll-up-your-sleeves workshop" teaches you how to become an effective Product Owner!  Our intensive Certified Scrum Product Owner course offers you a strong foundation in the Scrum framework and agile principles, geared toward the unique Product Owner role. Yet there is more! On day three we will step you through from Vision through Release planning with your own project data. The real-world experience these trainers have allows us to incorporate practical advice and time-tested techniques into this hands-on workshop. 


What is Scrum?

Scrum is a simple but powerful agile framework. Key to its success is the role of the Product Owner, who steers and guides the Scrum project, bridges the gap between end customers, business and development/IT and is responsible for the return on investment (ROI). The Product Owner combines the traditional project and product manager roles in one person. 

This three-day interactive Scrum Product Owner Workshop equips you with all you need to know to be an effective Product Owner. At the end of the course, you will understand how to leverage Scrum to optimise value creation and customer satisfaction. You will be able to create a realistic release plan, stock the product backlog, write user stories and refine requirements. You will also know how you can increase productivity, level the workload, and be able to steer your project proactively.
