Scrum offers product owners a path towards producing autonomous and efficient teams, while driving forward business and development goals. This two-day Scrum Product Owner course equips you with the tools to efficiently apply the responsibilities of a product owner to your project management.
Martine Devos refocuses your Scrum efforts, narrowing them down to: the product rather than the process (building clarity around product success); the user experience of your customer through insightful design thinking; and of course, collaboration.
Get your head around the ‘product backlog’, and learn how to leverage autonomous teams.

- Are you a portfolio manager? If you’re managing large portfolios of products, you may find this class too tactical for your tastes. However, it will help you understand how agile product owners and teams work.
Those who feel their more traditional software development roles seem to fall through the cracks. Don’t despair. This course focuses on a team approach where a primary more strategic product owner is supported by a team of more tactical team members that help carry the product from abstract vision to concrete detail.
You should come with a basic understanding of Scrum and Agile approaches. In preparation for this course, you’ll receive a pdf of the Harvard Business Review article that helped motivate the creation of Scrum. I will help you to identify the style of product invention we’re striving for in Scrum.
Before the class, you will be sent information to help you to prepare, including a short reading list that includes the Scrum Guide - a short 16-page primer on Scrum. This will give you the vocabulary you’ll need to launch head-first into effective product ownership practice.
You are strongly recommended to read the following books prior to class:
