Who is this course for

Product Owners are often drawn from many walks of life, project managers, product managers, business analyst and marketeers all bring different perspective to the role.

If you are likely to be charged with ensuring a product delivers maximum value to your customers, this is the course for you.

You will learn how to
  • Create and manage a product vision that inspires developers and customers alike.
  • CraftUser Stories that allow clear communication between the customer and the development team.
  • Create themes and personas that allow you to get to grips with what your customers want from a product.
  • Define the minimum viable product (MVP)

Benefits for your organisation

The product owner role is primarily responsible for ensuring that the Scrum team deliver value to the business, yet often companies neglect to invest in this vital position. A well trained and empowered product owner will build inspiring product visions, ensure that the most valuable features arrive to wow customers early and prevent features that don't add value from ever being built.

Benefits for you as an individual

Many product owners are thrown in the deep-end, whether you’ve come from a business analysis, marketing, project management or product management background this role will be different to any you have known before, and more rewarding. This course will highlight your key responsibilities and give you practical tips on how to rapidly return value to the business.
