Agile Scrum Product Owner Certification

Part of the Agile portfolio: Agile Scrum Foundation, Agile Scrum Master, Agile Product Owner and Agile Project Management

Agile Scrum Master course description

Agile Scrum Product Owner focuses on bringing value to the customer and value for the business, through Agile project management techniques. This certification is especially suitable for professionals working in the areas of project management, software development, IT service management and business management.

An Agile Scrum Product Owner certificate ensures that a candidate can successfully lead Agile Scrum projects in the context of an overall Service and Product Lifecycle, in a way that adds the most value possible for the customer.

In order to do this, the Product Owner provides direction, makes final decisions, and ensures that the Team is aimed at the right goals. The Product Owner is actively engaged with, communicates well with, and listens carefully to arguments from the Team. Within the context of the organization’s larger business objectives, the Product Owner provides the vision, but also the boundaries within which this vision must be realized. This is achieved by creating, maintaining and prioritizing the business value-driven Product Backlog. It is the Product Owner’s responsibility to make sure the project earns a good Return on Investment.

A good Product Owner understands the business and the market, is the Voice of the Customer (internal or external), manages the product or service lifecycle and balances the need for both functional and non-functional requirements.

Scrum Foundation and Scrum Master are required for attending this course.
