This two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner training provides everything you need to get started as the business point person using Scrum with a team. You may be a product manager, project manager, business analyst or other subject matter expert (SME), but whichever role, you know you are the voice of the customer – the one specifying what team should build, the vision, roadmap and priorities for the team and deciding on the feature, cost, and quality tradeoffs.
The course is taught interactively. No death by PowerPoint. Students will learn about vision, roadmaps, release planning, estimates, trade-offs, user stories and more hands-on via teams, discussions, numerous exercises and fun.
This short video on our Scrum training shows some of how and why my workshops are different from most others.
We’ll also cover the basics of “what is Agile”, the Scrum Framework, Product Backlog, story point estimation with Planning Poker, Scrum Meetings and Scrum Roles. Other additional topics often include Scaling Agile, Distributed Teams, Agile Adoption and Transformation, “Agile Project Management,” getting leadership and management support, and more.
I have three years experience as a full-time ScrumMaster, and another three coaching at some of the best agile coaching organizations in the nation, Rally (now part of CA) and BigVisible (now part of SIQ), and a Certified Enterprise Coach, with additional certifications from Pragmatic Marketing, and in Large Scale Scrum and the Scaled Agile Framework. I also was a manager and a developer, so I have experience with some of the dynamics at play in the agile transition.
From an agile coach: “When my ScrumMaster told me he wanted to take a CSM class, from what I know about you and your classes, I thought you were likely to focus on servant leadership more than other trainers, so I sent him your way. He came by my desk this morning ecstatic about his experience and the impression you left on him! Sounds like the slide-less format is being well received. I’m happy to hear you’re experimenting with alternative teaching styles and holding classes that push the boundaries of a typical CSM experience! Really great work you’re doing.”
