Of all the Scrum roles, the product owner's is the most difficult, and the most crucial. Unlike the team member or Scrum master, product owners must know how to prioritize focus and feature flow, enable Agile teams, balance all stakeholder needs and ensure a maximum return on investment (ROI). This dynamic, two-day training and certification exam taught only in English gives you the necessary skills and knowledge you need to excel as a Scrum product owner.
I liked that real business examples were used. It let me know that the trainer had actual experience and didn't just learn a process and then teach it. - Business Consultant, ING
