Agile for Product Owners

2 Days

Description

In this course, participants will learn and leverage the agile principles needed to become an empowered product owner, supportive partner of your agile development team and bring agile leadership to your organization.

When an organization makes the decision to adopt agile, it takes much more than pulling together a development team and allowing them to work in an iterative manner. Agile is a true shift in how individuals collaborate, communicate and operate. Agile requires an "all in " mindset from both business and technology where all individuals work together to deliver business value in the form of working software.

The Agile for Product Owners course will provide the knowledge to understand and apply the principles of agile. At the end of the course, participants will be able to effectively plan, prioritize and manage a product roadmap to deliver business value, understand the role of the Product Owner and the development team within an iterative process, and gain the skills necessary to become an agile leader to drive your organization to the next level.
