    Scrum is a simple but powerful agile management framework. Key to its success is the role of the Product Owner: The Product Owner steers and guides the Scrum project, bridges the gap between end customers, business and development/IT and is responsible for the return on investment (ROI). The Product Owner combines the traditional project manager and the product manager roles in one person.

    This two-day interactive course equips you with all you need to know about being an effective Product Owner. At the end of the class, you will understand how you can leverage Scrum to optimise value creation and customer satisfaction. You will be able to create a realistic release plan, stock the product backlog, write user stories, refine requirements. You will also know how you can increase productivity, level the workload, and steer the project proactively.

    Each participant is trained to assume the responsibilities of a Product Owner and to apply Scrum to optimize customer satisfaction and value creation.
    Product managers, innovation managers, marketing and sales staff, business analysts, project managers or ScrumMasters who would like to deepen their understanding of the Product Owner role and related practices.
    Participants should be familiar with the basics of project and requirements management. It is desirable that the participants have already some initial training or experience in applying Scrum. Participants are required to read the following books prior to class:
