Project Description

Agile For Product Owner

Quickly grasp the keys to Agile practice and become an empowered product owner and a supportive partner of your Agile development team.

Utilizing an Agile approach effectively requires more than just ensuring the development team is following the Agile process. It is a collaborative effort between this team and the product owner. Agile represents a true paradigm change for most organizations, and in order to truly take advantage of the possible benefits, today’s product owners need to know how to support their development partners.

This course will provide extensive knowledge and understanding of the principles of Agile, demonstrate how to use the product backlog as a tool for driving success product outcomes, instruct clearly in the ways of working in partnership with the development organization, and provide tools that enable teams to embrace the change that is required for delivering the best products possible.

When an organization makes the decision to adopt agile, it takes much more than pulling together a development team and allowing them to work in an iterative manner. Agile is a true shift in how individuals collaborate, communicate and operate. Agile requires an all in mindset from both business and technology where all individuals work together to deliver business value in the form of working software.

The Agile for Product Owners course will provide the knowledge to understand and apply the principles of agile. At the end of the course, participants will be able to effectively plan, prioritize and manage a product road-map to deliver business value, understand the role of the Product Owner and the development team within an iterative process, and gain the skills necessary to become an agile leader to drive your organization to the next level.
