The product owner is the hardest and the most crucial role for the success of an agile organisation. The role is shifting from listing requirements to enabling outcome-based thinking. Join our two-day course to strengthen your know-how and ensure that your products continuously create value.

Course description

Product owners must understand the desired outcomes for the product and target users. Outcome thinking involves identifying a product's goals and objectives and then working backwards to determine features and requirements to achieve them. This approach helps product owners focus on the product's most critical aspects and decide what to include and leave out.

In addition to outcome thinking, product owners should also be skilled in identifying customer needs and validating their hypotheses about the desired outcomes. They should also be adept at communicating with stakeholders and working with the development team to ensure that the product is delivered on time and within budget.

As a Product Owner, gain and deepen the skillset needed to champion product-led thinking in a lean-agile enterprise! 

In this practical training, you’ll learn why the role is essential, what makes a successful product owner, and how to work with your team and interact with and involve stakeholders in improving your product. 

The product owner training gives you the skills and confidence to work as a product owner and grows your outcome-thinking mindset, which is crucial to deliver a product that truly meets the needs of its target users and achieves the desired business outcomes.
