Organisations strive to be agile. They want be able to launch innovative products and services leveraging the opportunities around them. 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.
Agile Product Owners must go beyond writing User Stories or managing the Product
Backlog. Professional Product Owners must have a solid understanding of what drives
value. They must be equipped with techniques to create, measure and maintain value at
the product and enterprise level.
This course helps students develop and solidify this understanding – from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.
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 maximising the flexibility and return on investment of multiple simultaneous releases. Finally, it addresses long-term product ownership and total cost of ownership.
In the course, we address how to optimize the value of current systems. Students learn how to progressively order 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.
