Smart Scrum Product Ownership
[OUR FIRST CLASS IN NYC SOLD OUT WEEKS IN ADVANCE. DON'T WAIT TO GET YOUR TICKETS.]
Jeff Patton and Jeff Gothelf, have teamed up to delivery an honest, irreverent, and extremely useful 2-Day Certified Scrum Product Ownership course. This is a course with a deliberate and unapologetic product-centric and Lean UX bias. If you’ve learned Agile and Scrum basics elsewhere and felt that product and user experience concerns were missing, we’ll fix that.
Put a brain on your Scrum process
Scrum, or common Agile practice, as it’s commonly taught, isn’t enough to create successful products. In the worst of cases Scrum can lead smart, well-intentioned people into doing stupid things all in the name of building more faster. While building software isn’t easy, the hardest part is making good decisions about exactly what to build.
This workshop puts a brain on your Scrum process. In it you’ll learn how to build up from an Agile and Scrum foundation by knitting Lean Startup, Lean UX, Design Thinking, and effective Product Thinking into more holistic product design and development process. The result is an approach to product development that let’s you and your team focus on creating products your users love.
What you’ll learn:
This course will spend a little time on Agile and Scrum essentials and moves quickly beyond. In this class you’ll learn:
How to structure a Holistic Product Development process that leverages Scrum for delivery and brings in the best of product, design, and lean thinking
How Product Owners, UX Designers, and Engineers collaborate to lead Cross-Functional Product teams
Effective Collaboration Skills that help build shared understanding
How to frame product improvement ideas using a simple Opportunity Canvas
Characterizing your users and their needs using Proto Personas
Exploring how users work now, and with your future solution using User Story Mapping
Collaborative ideation using the Design Studio practice
Identifying a Release Strategy built from small viable releases
Validating product solutions using MVP Tests
Reducing the risk of late delivery using a Development Strategy
How User Stories really work, and how to use Story-Driven Development throughout your process
Keeping discovery work visible in Scrum
Facilitating common Scrum Ceremonies that place equal focus on discovery and development
Balancing continuous discovery and development using Parallel Track Development
Who should attend? (All key members of your team, that’s who)
This workshop isn’t just for product owners. One of the biggest misconceptions in Scrum is that the product owner is the “single ringable neck” solely responsible for building the right product. In fact, it takes a whole team focusing on product success. This workshop is ideal for:
Product managers, product owners, or producers
User experience practitioners
Engineers and testers
Scrum masters, agile coaches, and project managers
And anyone else on your team motivated by creating products your customers love
You should bring your team. Otherwise you’re just going to have to try to explain all this stuff to them when you get back to the office.
It won’t be boring
This workshop is fast-paced and collaborative. We’ll teach with a mixture of hand-drawing, slides, videos, storytelling and humor. You’ll get your hands dirty getting a taste of the many practices we teach.
Yes, you’ll receive Scrum Certification, and lots of other stuff...
This is a Scrum Certified Product Ownership course, and you’ll receive certification from the Scrum Alliance after attending the course.
You’ll also receive a workbook, quick reference guides, and access to electronic versions of all the resources used in class. And participants will receive a copy of Jeff Patton’s User Story Mapping, and Jeff Gothelf’s Lean UX.
