Lead the change as a team of Product Owners.

Want to improve Agile Product Management and Product Ownership? This track will give you tools for making better decisions and involving your stakeholders more closely. The track focuses on your team’s practice. You obtain a rich collection of tools and best practices. We combine learning and working and apply these tools directly to your situation. Experienced trainers translate theory into practice. The track is ideal for developing a shared vision, of content and process, together with the other Product Managers and Product Owners in your organization.

The Challenges of Agile Product Management

You have an influential role as a Product Manager or Product Owner. You are responsible for the more significant decisions in product development. Your team invests a sizable hourly budget. To make those investment decisions well, you want to have an overview of the landscape of requirements and interests. 

Your decisions affect many people. You can sometimes feel alone and uncertain in the game of interests and expectations. Knowing how well you are doing seems complicated, and the pressure of responsibility is high.

Participants in this program say they have become a closer team. They seek each other out as sparring partners and share the pressure.

Increase your leverage as an advanced Product Owner.

Investing in skills has a short payback when your leverage is this high. Well-educated Product Owners create twice as much Return On Investment. They handle budgets and hours of development teams more efficiently. Therefore, investing in best practices, tools, and thinking frameworks pays off within weeks. The proof: thanks to this Product Owner Master track, ONVZ was able to drive more measurable value. You get more grip on innovation and are a solid discussion partner for top management.

A program focused on the characteristics of successful Product Owners

The program is spread over six days, with accents according to the participants’ preferences. In those six days, we provide concrete tools to build on the traits of Successful Product Ownership. We have started and guided many teams at Scrum Academy. Our insight: You can best develop the following traits as a Product Owner.

  1. You bring clarity and calm: safety, frameworks, vision, and direction.
  2. You know how to create end-to-end value (outcome) for the organization with each sprint.
  3. You can convey the expected value (ROI) of your team’s output.
  4. You take ownership of both successes and setbacks in your team.
  5. You build efficient and effective relationships with your stakeholders and team members.
  6. You know how to motivate the team to innovate intrinsically.
  7. You manage expectations securely and predictably.
  8. Thanks to your overview, you always know how to establish the relationship between the short and long term.
  9. Thanks to constantly collecting and sharing insights, you and your team can produce value faster and faster.

Structure of the training

In a program of six days—or twelve half-days—you will receive training and coaching centered on your practice. There is at least one week between the training days. In the meantime, you put what you have learned into practice. By applying it, you find out what your next learning goal is. Alternating training and practice makes the track dynamic, applicable and interactive. During the track, you get away from the daily pressure. You take the time to work on the big picture of your assignment with new tools. This track will not cost you time. It will get critical work done. 

During the track, you will work with Product Owners and Product Managers who want to develop just as you do. During intervisions, you can exchange knowledge and spar. Co-learning brings you closer together as a team. Individual coaching between sessions is also an option.
