In this 16 hours class students will gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of their organization. Through a case study-based series of exercises, combined with instruction, students gain the entrepreneurial product leadership skills and practices critical to growing as a successful Product Owner.
The Product Owner role is multifaceted, requiring them to engage in behaviours and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum framework. Students explore these techniques and how to pivot among them by exploring several Product Owner "stances", including:
The Customer Representative:
Focus on understanding customer problems, pains and opportunities
Get into the mindset of the customer, placing yourself in their world, understanding their needs
Deliver value by connecting product features to customer outcomes
Champion the future state, possibilities, goals and chances
Communicate the product vision, strategy and Product Goal
Understand value and pricing models
Focus on innovation through experiments, hypotheses, tests, learnings, data and validation of value
Understand the Product Owner's role in a scaled environment
The Decision Maker:
Focus on making better decisions
Navigate conflicting customer feedback
Seek collaboration with stakeholders and the Scrum Team
Work beyond the Scrum Team, including contracts, finance, budgeting and governance in an agile way
Lead the stakeholders, customers and Scrum Team to move in the right direction and to change their minds when necessary
Learn how to create a stakeholder management strategy
This course is designed for Product Owners, Product Managers, and Business Analysts, focusing heavily on Product Management skills, tools, techniques, and knowledge as part of their work on the Scrum Team.
