About the course:
The Product Owner role is critical to maximizing Return on Investment (ROI) from agile projects and is one of the most challenging and rewarding agile roles. Many Product Owners come from business areas of the organization and have limited familiarity with elements of software development, project management and agile methods that are critical to success in the Product Owner role. For these reasons, it is vitally important that Product Owners gain a solid understanding of their role and responsibilities as well as the knowledge, skills and tools to work effectively with Scrum teams.
