    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.
