Advanced Professional Scrum Product Owner

Learn Scrum From Those Who Created and Maintain It

The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:
• Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities.
• Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster common understanding.
• Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation.
• Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with common purpose.
• Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others.
• Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions.
