This two-day Product Owner certification course provides everything you need to get started as the business point person using Scrum with a team. You may be a product manager, project manager, business analyst or other subject matter expert (SME), but no matter the role, you know you are the voice of the customer - the one specifying what team should build, the vision, roadmap and priorities for the team and deciding on the feature, cost, and quality tradeoffs. Scrum will enable the business to see working demo's every one to four weeks, as well as empower frequent releases to production and draw the team closer to the business value goals of product itself.
The largest and fastest-growing Agile project management methodology, Scrum is a simple framework that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and enables more effective teams almost immediately.
This course shares industry-tested practices for evolving Product Backlogs, planning your Releases and Sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and developing continuous improvement cycles. Participants will learn the how and why of Scrum and agile, how to effectively participate in the Sprint Planning Meetings, Demo/Reviews, Retrospectives, the 15 minute daily stand-up, and more. You'll get some tools to help collaboratively prioritize features with the team, as well as some insights from Lean Start-up on how to leverage the build-measure-learn cycle, book-ending these features and ideas with your hypothesis and results-measurement.
Upon completion of the course and a post-course online evaluation, participants are registered as Certified Scrum Product Owners. Registration includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, (www.scrumalliance.org), which has a wealth of Scrum and agile material and community information available.
Besides Scrum education, this course has a bigger purpose of changing the world, and connecting and inspiring others to do the same. 10% of class proceeds will be donated to a charity highlighted during the class.
