The Essential Product Owner – a 2-day Course

So I can guide and collaborate with the agile team,
I need to use techniques for agile planning, analysis, and product delivery.

Agile product owners enable teams to deliver high-value products. To ensure that the right product is delivered at the right time, agile product owners need to be skilled at collaboration, facilitation, and communication. They must also think strategically and tactically while steering efforts to achieve positive and profitable product outcomes. With such diverse demands, many agile product owners struggle under the weight of championing successful products. We can help.

EBG’s Essential Product Owner training is a two-day course that equips agile product owners with knowledge and skills for discovering and analyzing product options, making difficult and effective value-based planning decisions, and continually refining a lean product backlog. Topics include:

Day 1

  • Agile product owner essentials – attitudes and aptitudes for championing successful products
  • Product vision – establish a compelling direction for your product
  • Business value – identify value qualitatively and quantitatively
  • Product options – choose high-value user stories and features
  • Structured Conversation – collaborate to create a shared understanding among stakeholders
  • The 7 Product Dimensions – explore, evaluate, and confirm

Day 2

  • Minimum Marketable Features – discover the smallest, high value feature set
  • Product backlog – keep your backlog lean and organized
  • Acceptance criteria – communicate and validate feature details
  • Agile planning – create product roadmaps and release plans
  • Good practices of agile product owners – your action plan
