What is a Product Owner?
A good Product Owner drives delivery of value to customers and users and is therefore plays a critical role in a Scrum team.
Good product ownership starts with a strong vision for the product, understanding how the product provides value to customers and users and how to maximize the value over time through iterative and incremental releases of the product. The Product Owner sets measurable goals for the product and is able to articulate the vision and goals to all stakeholders and the development team, helping the team to deliver the product in the most effective way.
In this two day workshop, you will learn how the Product Owner role fits into the Scrum team in order to drive maximum product value over time.
Through a series of activities, including game play, role play, interactive exercises, case studies and in depth group discussions, you will experience what it's like to be a Product Owner on a Scrum team.
The Training Approach

On completing the course, candidates designated as a Certified Scrum Product Owner by the Scrum Alliance. Candidates will then also become members of the Scrum Alliance and can work towards achieving the higher level Certified Scrum Professional designation.

What others say about Iain’s training
“Great! I got exactly what I wanted out of it. It’s been a great 2 days with a fantastic trainer. I’d do another course with Iain if given the chance” JM
“I couldn’t imagine a better training in Scrum that Iain did in Bratislava this summer. His explanations of Scrum and general agile practices were excellent and he could back them up with an amazing list of real-world experiences. He could answer any question with a story of how it can go wrong and how to do it right” Adam Sandor
“We had been exposed to Scrum practices in our company so did not expect to take much from the course. The content and training approach was very effective. The hands on class assignments were relevant and insightful. During the course, the practices we used and what actually should be done became clear. McKenna’s excellent grasp of Scrum concepts was rubbing off on us. What really amazed me was McKenna’s knowledge and experience using Scrum. His knowledge of software practices and project management also was a great insight for us. Grateful Student” Vilva Ponnasamy
“Thank you very much for your training which was way above what I was expecting; dynamic, knowledgeable and practical!” Guillam Durand
