Traditional project management has been strongly challenged through the introduction of Agility: it is not about projects anymore, it is about maximizing value with products which fulfil the customer’s needs!
The course Professional Product Owner (PSPO), a 2-day course, aims to achieve a deep understanding in how to maximize the value of products and systems in an Agile organization. In this course, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. The responsibility a Product owner has, delivering a successful product, will become clearer from an Agile perspective. We will also take a closer look to the relationship between Product Owner and Product Management. Prioritization is also an important part of this course; how do we know what is the next thing we should work on? Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of the product to the marketplace.
The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Product Owner certification exam (PSPO I).
Within the course we will go through real-life examples we have seen when coaching numerous companies. We will also take a closer look at the daily challenges organizations face when applying Scrum such as planning, portfolio management, leadership and conflict handling.
