    Product Owner Dojo & Project Launch: 

    To Launch your product and delight your customers we’re offering a 3-day hands-on course where you will learn about the art of being a great Product Owner.  We will provide a space for learning consisting of training, mentoring, networking and coaching, and you will learn how to launch a product to delight your customers. The core of the training is an experience of Agile with a holistic perspective - not only Scrum - on product development extended by a third day, where we will help you to launch your team and project. There is an option to continue in a mentor group beyond the training event. We provide deep knowledge and guidance of how to lead the change towards a successful and fulfilling Product Owner stance.

    We will do this by applying Agile practices to the training it self: thus expect a highly collaborative, social interactive, and playful group where trainers respond to change instead of following a fixed pre-set aganda. We will pair-faciltate the training to allow us to be even more responsive to your needs and lead the learning group in a very dynamic yet goal oriented style. We both have many years of experience in coaching Agile teams with a focus on product development and the role of the Product Owner.

    People are struggling making the shift from the traditional plan-based phased approach of product development to an adaptive Agile way.  What they are missing is the positive leverage Agile provides during product innovation and inception. Exploring complex product development inspection and adaption is crucial.  This Product Owner Dojo is a place where you can stretch your Product Owner competencies to the fullest.  Having the highest Product Owner competencies accelerates your entire organization. On day three we will step you through from Vision through Release planning with your own project data. The real-world experience we bring to the course allow us to incorporate practical advice and time-tested techniques into this hands-on workshop. 

    Upon completion of the course, students will be credentialed as Certified Scrum Product Owners (CSPO). Additionally, this course counts towards 21 PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs)/contact hours, and 21 Scrum Education Units (SEUs).

    This course will be in English, however we are multi-lingual: questions are taken in English, French and German, and these questions will be answered in the language the question was posed.

    This course is brought to you by Catherine Louis from www.cll-group.com and Stefan Haas from www.haaslab.net. Special thanks to Agile Experts who are hosting this course. Information about Agile Experts can be found here: http://agileexperts.at More information about the 'dojo can be found here: http://podojo-vienna.eventbrite.de

     

    Though each CSPO course varies depending on the instructor, all Certified Scrum Product Owner® courses focus on Scrum from a product owner's perspective. Graduates will receive the CSPO designation. All CSPO course are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.
