Many teams and organisations are adopting Scrum to dramatically improve their ability to develop software. However, Agile teams need to be building the right software, and to be truly Agile, they also need to be regularly fed with well-shaped requirements. The Product Owner is a critical ingredient of a Scrum team, shaping what they build and a key influence on team achievement.

We have taken our 2 day course and reinvented it for online, with 2 trainers and plenty of interaction and practical content. The course will run to a comfortable 10:00am - 16:00pm schedule over 3 days to enable really deep learning along with some space to fit in other aspects of your life. There will also be regular breaks for tea and coffee and to stretch your legs.
What do I need to take part in this course?
The most obvious thing you will need is a good WiFi and Internet connection with a nice quiet environment for you to both hear and also interact with your fellow course attendees and us lovely trainers! Don't worry about the odd child/dog/cat/partner wondering past or interrupting occasionally, we'll just roll with it 🙂
We recommend a laptop or desktop with good sound and microphone. Course participants have struggled on phones and tablets. We will be using Zoom for the video conference functionality with a waiting room and password configured to provide a reasonable level of security. If you can, we recommend installing the Zoom app on your device but the web version should work as a plan B.
Following successful completion of the course, each participant will become a Certified Scrum Product Owner. There is no exam for this course, full attendance and completion of the group exercises are the only prerequisites for certification. This certification includes a two year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional member-only material and information is available.
An electronic version of course slides, materials and workshop output will also be provided after the course closes.
