Certification course (D10089)
Product and Program managers are responsible for juggling many competing interests: committments to customers, committments to the marketplace, all while managing risk and change. Additionally they must organize and optimize the competing interests by systems architecture, persona, product functionality, and customer rollout plans. These responsibilities are very difficult in large, international organizations that develop and market interrelated products and product families.
The Professional Scrum Product Owner course helps these managers understand how to use Scrum to meet these responsibilities. Their input is Product Backlog, a prioritized list of requirements that optimize value and reduce waste. Their output are increments of work ready to inventory for release.
