INTRODUCTION

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) programme teaches people how to maximise the Return on Investment (ROI) and optimise the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of products and systems. Agile Product Ownership today requires more than knowledge on how to write a User Story or manage a Product Backlog. Professional Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of everything that drives value from their products. 

WHAT’S COVERED?

  • How to be an Agile programme, product or IT development manager in a complex environment
  • A look at the creation and retention of value
  • Specific tactics and strategies for maximising the flexibility and responsiveness of software product creation
  • Techniques for fulfilling these responsibilities
  • How to optimise the value of current systems
  • How to progressively order requirements and become more agile

YOUR FIVE KEY TAKEOUTS

  • How to increase the value created by the product for which you are responsible
  • An understanding of the differences between traditional and agile product management
  • How the product owner works in an agile environment to deliver a product
  • The basics of identifying a release goal and requirements, backlog ordering, estimation, adjustment and baseline planning
  • An understanding of Total Cost of Ownership and how it is fundamental to successfully managing a product

DOES IT HELP MY FUTURE?

Organisations today are required to be agile; to deliver new or enhanced products and systems dictated by customers, competition and business pressures. This course teaches you how to work in such a complex environment to successfully fulfil the varied responsibilities and help you gain greater experience.

The course was well-balanced with subject content, team discussions and practical examples which made it truly interesting.
