Registration Fee: $1,695.00

Overview
Audience The Professional Scrum Product Owner course is targeted to Product Owners and anyone else accountable for maximizing the value delivered by software products and services. Scrum Masters benefit from this course as their role often includes coaching Product Owners. Overview The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) course is a 2-day course on how to maximize the value of software products and systems.

The breadth of the role's responsibilities in delivering a successful product becomes clear from an Agile perspective on product management. Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of it to the marketplace. This defines the perspective from which the role of the Product Owner in the Scrum framework is taught.

Sat July 14, 2018
8:30am-4:30pm
Registration Fee: $495.00

Overview
This 1-day workshop assures participants understand the agile mindset, which is based on the 4 core values and 12 principles in the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. Scrum will be the focus of this training but we discuss how being agile is much larger than any one framework and how you can blend practices from many agile frameworks to meet your organization's particular needs and culture. We will discuss the importance of delivering continual value to the customer, flexible and rapid response to change, time-boxed iterations, and rapid feedback loops to mitigate risk and establish collaborative team environments. We'll discuss the benefits of an empirical process framework like Scrum and dive into the roles, artifacts and events that serve to establish an environment of transparency, inspection and adaptation. This workshop has a lot of group activities and extensive exercises that reinforce the agile and Scrum topics we'll be covering. Be prepared to learn and have a lot of fun in the process.
