    This course teaches you how to create an effective agile product strategy and a compelling agile product roadmap. Product strategy and product roadmap are important tools for product managers and product owners: The strategy explains who the product is for, why it benefits its customers and users, what makes the product stand out, and how it creates value for your company. The roadmap forecasts how the product is likely to grow and it describes when which benefits and features are likely to be available.

    The training is ideal for product owners who want to learn more about the strategic work that precedes and complements Scrum and for product managers who would like to understand how a product strategy and roadmap are best created in an agile context.

    If you would like to have this course delivered onsite or as a webinar, then please contact us.

    “Roman’s course was the most valuable professional training I have participated in for quite a while. Very insightful, practical, thought provoking, and relevant to becoming an effective product owner,” says Wolfgang Hilpert, Senior VP and Head of Product Management at SAP AG.
