Empower yourself with the knowledge and tools to excel as a Scrum Product Owner. Scrum is a process framework used to manage complex product development since the early 1990s. The Product Owner is responsible for maximising the value of the product and the work of the development team. Some of the work a Product Owner does includes defining the product backlog, prioritising them and making sure that development team understand the items clearly.  Conducted by Certified Scrum Trainer Pete Deemer, it consists of lectures modules and case-study-based exercises with ample open discussions and Q&A opportunities.

It taught me tools and techniques for managing product development and actively involving Scrum-based development and enhancement projects.


The facilitator had lots of energy, gave clear and concise instructions and made this topic very understandable and easy to learn. Coupled with real-life examples and advice for real situations which are more complex, this was one of the most rewarding programmes I've ever taken. I wish more people would learn and adopt Scrum's way of thinking and working.


Very detailed walk-through of the components of Scrum that a Product Owner needs to know to use this tool.
