    The Product Owner is the one and only person responsible for managing the Product Backlog and ensuring the value of the work the Team performs. This person maintains the Product Backlog and ensures that it is visible to everyone. Everyone knows what items have the highest priority, so everyone knows what will be worked on. 

    For the Product Owner to succeed, everyone in the organization has to respect his or her decisions. The Product Owner’s decisions are visible in the content and prioritization of the Product Backlog. This visibility requires the Product Owner to do his or her best, and it makes the role of Product Owner both a demanding and a rewarding one. In our Certified Scrum Product Owner training, you will learn the Scrum framework and both the fundamentals of being a Product Owner and a wealth of advanced topics. Through a mixture of class room study, exercises, pair discussions and real-world trainer experiences, an attendee will gain strong experiences that will be a invaluable help for their first (or next!) Scrum project as Product Owner. 

    Attendees will learn about the key rights and responsibilities of being a Product Owner on a Scrum project. The course will cover how to effectively set project direction for an agile team without destroying the key aspects of performance and self organisation of the team. This will enable the team to deliver maximum business value early and regularly. They will also learn that, despite being a simple framework, it is deceptively simple! The discipline and feedback culture of Scrum requires support from yourself to be high performing. You will learn how to do this and more in our Certified Scrum Product Owner Training. 

    This course will be run by Nigel Baker. Spaces on this course are highly limited! Book now to avoid disappointment.
