About this training

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

The Visionary:

  • Champion the future state, possibilities, goals and chances
  • Communicate the product vision, strategy and Product Goal
  • Understand value and pricing models

The Experimenter:

  • 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

The Collaborator:

  • Seek collaboration with stakeholders and the Scrum Team
  • Work beyond the Scrum Team, including contracts, finance, budgeting and governance in an agile way

The Influencer:

  • 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

The course does not address the Scrum framework (much), and we assume people have a proper understanding of the Scrum framework. Participants should have at least one year of experience as a Product Owner or Product Manager, while multiple years of experience and having attended the Professional Scrum Product Owner course and passing PSPO assessment is preferred, but not mandatory.

This was my third Meirik course
This was my third Meirik course, and they have all been of the utmost quality. The Meirik trainers are highly knowledgeable and very skilled at delivery, maintaining a high level of energy and participation. The use of break-out rooms and virtual whiteboards delivered a learning environment that in some ways surpassed physical training. Highly recommended.

Meirik - always the best experience
Learning with Meirik trainers is always the best experience. They, besides their knowledge, know how to find the best pace to gain the information. They can "feel" what will be the best way to conduct the training. For sure! I'll back to the Meirik for more.
