Product Owner Course
Scrum is a simple, empirically based framework that has wide ranging
implications. Key to the success of Scrum is the role of the Product Owner. The
Product Owner is responsible for a project’s Return on Investment (ROI), guiding
the Scrum team, and representing Customers as well as Business and Development
staff. Strong Product Ownership is key to successful Scrum transformations.
Learn the essentials of working as a Scrum Alliance Certified Product Owner
(CSPO) in this two-day class. Danube’s CSPO equips participants with the
knowledge of Scrum principles and practices necessary to succeed in this new
paradigm. Participants can expect to learn how to establish and maintain a
backlog and write stories with clear acceptance criteria. We will also discuss
real-world organizational challenges such as managing distributed teams,
managing large or multiple projects, release planning, and metrics.
Food and refreshments are typically provided.
