    About the Course

    The Product Owner role is critical to maximising Return on Investment from Scrum projects and is perhaps the most challenging role to fulfill. Many Product Owners come from business areas of the organisation and have limited familiarity with software development and agile methods. For these reasons, it is vitally important that Product Owners gain a solid understanding of their role and responsibilities as well as the knowledge, skills and tools to work effectively with Scrum teams.


    About the Trainer

    Rowan Bunning is a Certified Scrum Trainer and a pioneer of Scrum in Australia. Having worked in an eXtreme Programming (XP) environment since 2000, Rowan learned about Scrum in 2003 and subsequently led an organisation-wide transition to Scrum combined with XP at an innovative Australian software company producing bespoke applications for Government clients and exporting enterprise products internationally.

    Rowan become one of Australia’s first Certified ScrumMasters in February 2005 and the country’s first Certified Scrum Practitioner in October 2006. He has a strong relationship with Europe's most experienced Certified Scrum Trainer and Practitioner with whom he has studied, consulted and co-trained.

    Rowan has worked in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland as an Agile Coach with one of Europe's leaders in Scrum - Conchango (now EMC Conchango). Rowan is now an independent consultant helping organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand to succeed with Agile through training and hands-on coaching. He has consulted to organisations ranging from start-ups to globally recognised software vendors with large-scale distributed development operations.

    Rowan’s motivation for pursuing Agile stems from the substantial waste, poor delivery track-record and lack of trust that he sees around IT projects in many organisations. He passionately believes that there is enormous potential to improve business value, collaboration and productivity through a disciplined application of agile methods.
