About the Course
Transition to the product owner role with a powerful set of tools to help you be effective
Maybe you’ve adopted agile values and principles, or you might just be thinking about it. Either way, it’s time to focus on some of the factors that will help you make a successful transition into agile.
As the product owner on an agile team, you’re in a key leadership role, and responsible for taking a vision or idea and collaborating with the team to successfully transform it into a shippable product.
The common characteristic and the key success factor of the agile method is a product owner who is customer centric—someone who is considered the voice of the customer.
The greatest expectation of this role is the close interaction and collaboration with the entire team as they focus on delivering business value, early and often.
If you are new to the agile product owner role and interested in pursuing a career in agile product management, the Agile Product Owner course will help you achieve your goal.
This course is designed to guide you through not only the various responsibilities of the product owner role, but also the expectations of it.
