    What participants say about this course

    "I score this course 10/10. A very hands-on course outlining the role of a Product Owner."
                                                                                                     Henk D. (Project Manager)

    "To provide our business analysts with all necessary knowledge and practical insights about the Scrum framework and especially about the Product Owner role, we asked Jef to organize this 2-day course for us.

    To make the PO role really clear, Jef had set up and managed the course just as a Product Owner would manage a Product Backlog. He provided the content of the course as high level user stories, which he broke down in smaller stories throughout the course together with the participants. All our specific questions were pulled into the course backlog and estimated. To maximize the delivered value, Jef constantly re-prioritized the course backlog together with us.

    Jef is a really focused and skilled trainer that shares his knowledge on a very pro-active way. He succeeds greatly in motivating the participants to interact with each other to get out all intrinsic knowledge and all concerns they have.

    Jef provided us with a very successful training!"
                                                                                                     Nico D. N. (Manager/coordinator) 

    "Thank you for this very high quality course! You guided us in a very structured way through a very practical course and provided correct, insightful answers to all questions and challenges we came up with. Therefore, all participants were very focused and open for learning."
                                                                                                     Danny P. (Functional analyst)

    This course is aimed at everyone who is involved with Product Ownership in Scrum: Product Owners, business analysts, functional analysts, testers, product managers, marketing and sales people, business and IT management, etc. Since the Product Owner role overlaps with the typical responsibilities of a project manager, we highly encourage project managers and project leads to follow this course if they want to implement Scrum for their projects. And this course is also recommended for ScrumMasters that want to support an coach their Product Owner into doing a great job.

    In terms of experience, this course does not require any previous knowledge or experience in Scrum. Both people new to Scrum as people with experience in Scrum will find great value in this training. If you have no Scrum experience, however, we do need you to prepare this course by doing some minimal reading on Scrum. You will get the necessary reading materials after registration.

    This course will be facilitated in English. Since our trainer is also speaking Dutch and French, he will be happy to help you out in your native language as much as possible.
