Professional Scrum Product Owner

Organizations want to be “agile.” They should be able to turn out new or enhanced products and systems as dictated by the marketplace, competition, and business pressures, on a dime. As the environment they operate within changes, they need to be flexible while adhering to their purpose. As they flex, they need to be both predictable and sound, while controlling risk.

This course teaches how to be an agile program, product or business manager in a complex environment. Traditional Scrum courses address the role of the Product Owner, the Product Backlog, Scrum artifacts, User Stories, and Planning Poker. This course starts significantly before that, at the formulation of releases. It then moves to tactics maximizing the flexibility and return on investment of multiple simultaneous releases. Finally, it addresses long-term product ownership and total cost of ownership.

If we built simple systems for single users, this could be a short course. However, managers are responsible for juggling many competing interests: commitments to customers and to the marketplace, while managing risk and change. Additionally they must organize and optimize the competing interests by systems architecture, persona, product functionality, and customer rollout plans. These responsibilities are very difficult in large, international organizations that develop and market interrelated products and product families. This course teaches techniques for fulfilling these responsibilities.

In the course, we address how to optimize the value of current systems. We learn how to progressively restructure requirements and work to become more agile. The goal will be releasing products as fast as needed and no faster than customers can absorb. The steps to reach this end point will be addressed in detail.
