Course Overview

This 2-day training will provide you with all the elements you need to become a productive Product Owner maximizing the ROI of your business. Participants will learn the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, the differences between agile projects and traditional waterfall-type methodologies and how the role of the business is changing vis-à-vis Scrum teams.

 

Participants will also learn how to effectively manage and lead Product Discovery activities like defining a Product Vision as well as Understanding Users, Assumptions and Hypothesis.  Building on this participants will create Product Backlog through Journey Mapping, User Story Mapping, and refine User Stories that are ready to be played.

 

Lead by a Certified Scrum Trainer (since 2011) who was taught by Ken Schwaber in 2002, and co-facilitated by a Certified Scrum Professional, this training workshop leverages the latest in virtual training tools, a unique visual style, and extensive hands-on experience to create an engaging class for anyone interested in Scrum and looking to prepare themselves for working in Agile organizations & teams.



Course Methods & Materials


Our virtual courses endeavour to bring in the rich mix of communication, collaboration and learning games that were hallmarks of our in-person classes.  With proven approaches and an engaging technology platform, participants are able to share ideas, work in breakouts, practice new ways of working, all from the comfort of their own set-up.

The learning platform we use is as follows:

 

ZOOM -- an industry standard video and collaboration platform that allows for excellent face-to-face communication and facilitates chats, breakout rooms and an overall visual style of teaching.

 

MIRO -- this real time collaboration board provides the background for many of the learning games and exercises

Notability -- in lieu of whiteboards and projectors, the slides are shared through Zoom and annotated using Notability.  Blank sheets are created so that the facilitators can draw out concepts in real time or highlight areas as needed.

Graphic Facilitation -- a key way of learning in a virtual classroom is being able to see clearly what is being discussed and shaping those artifacts.   Both of our facilitators are trained graphic facilitators that brings a unique visual tone and ashetic to all the classes providing students with a very rich experience.


What’s Included in the class

 

Upon completion of the full two-day class, participants will receive

  • A 2-year membership with the Scrum Alliance

  • Certified Scrum Product Owner certification

  • Annotated slides from their specific class
