Programme Overview

Scrum is a simple but powerful agile management framework.

Key to its success is the role of the Product Owner who steers and guides the Scrum project, bridges the gap between end customers, business and development/IT and is responsible for the return on investment (ROI). The Product Owner combines the roles of the traditional project manager and the product manager in one person.

This two-day interactive Certified Scrum Product Owner course equips participants with all they need to know about being an effective Product Owner. The course blends tutorial, class discussion, question and answer sessions, and demonstrations/simulations.
