Advanced Product Owner
The Advanced Product Owner (APO) is a 2-day training for experienced Product Owners that have followed a Foundation or Certified training in the past but want to take their role to the next level. Through this training's healthy mix of exercises, discussions and lectures, you'll learn all you need to go beyond how Scrum works and maximise your effectiveness. In this training we dive into topics like: "what are the best ways to prioritise my backlog?" and "how do I influence my stakeholder?"
