This two day course—taught by author and popular Scrum and agile trainer Mike Cohn—teaches you how to use the Scrum product backlog as a tool for success and equip you with what you need to achieve success with Scrum.
Certified Scrum Product Owner Training teaches you, the product owner, how to use the product backlog as a tool for success. As you watch the product take shape, iteration after iteration, you can restructure the Product Backlog to incorporate your insights or respond to changes in business conditions. You can also identify and cancel unsuccessful projects early, often within the first several months. The Certified Scrum Product Owner; course equips you with what you need to achieve success with Scrum.
Intuitive and lightweight, the Scrum process delivers completed increments of the product at rapid, regular intervals, usually from every two weeks to a month. Rather than the traditional system of turning a project over to a project manager while you then wait and hope for the best, Scrum offers an effective alternative, made even more attractive when considering the statistics of traditional product approaches in which over 50% of all projects fail and those that succeed deliver products in which 64% of the functionality is rarely or never used.
Let us help you avoid becoming one of these statistics.
Following successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated a Certified Scrum Product Owner. This certification includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional member-only material and information are available.
