Advanced Product Owner

Advanced Product Owner Connexxo TrainingAs a key role between the business and the delivery organisation, the Product Owner is the person responsible to “get the things done”.

The role itself is very broad and it requires several different skills, sometimes even in opposition against each other: market expert and product expert, competence in the software development processes and understanding of how the client “ticks”, being able to see “the forest” of the product and capable of focusing on the “trees” of the details of the individual stories, servant leader with the team and negotiator with the client.

With all these requirements to the role, it is no wonder the typical product owner struggles in parts of it…

In this three-day advanced training we will look at various parts of the Product Owner role, discussing the most advanced techniques available:

  • Product Backlog techniques
  • Story definition
  • Story splitting
  • Project and portfolio prioritisation
  • Techniques for working with the team
  • Techniques for interacting with stakeholders – Requirements definition tools
  • Product development flow

The course is available only in-house for now.

Very interesting, very effective!

I won a much deeper understanding of the interactions among Team, Customer and Product Owner. Especially the tools to develop requirements from vague ideas will help in future product development.
