This experiential workshop will equip you with tools to tackle the formidable but rewarding role of Product Owner. You will gain real practice in class through hands-on exercises, project simulations and live demonstrations.
As a Scrum Product Owner, you are on a first-name basis with your users, have mapped their requirements thoroughly, and know that map like the back of your hand. You know the risk and business value in each user story, and are able to effortlessly assemble a backlog the team can implement. You are always available to the team, and constantly meeting with your users, customers, sponsors, and other stakeholders. No problem!
Upon completion of the workshop, participants earn the Certified Scrum Product Owner certification and 16 Scrum Educational Units (SEUs) through the Scrum Alliance. Additionally, members of the Project Management Institute earn 14 Professional Development Units (PDUs).
Note that for a participant to be eligible for certification by the Scrum Alliance, the participant must attend both days of the workshop in their entirety.
