    Training themed illustration - Product owner
    Product Owner is the most important role in Agile. A good one prioritizes work effectively, ensuring the team works on the right things, with the right specifications. This protects the team’s time and energy, making them less stressed and delivering higher quality work.

    In this modular, tailored training program, your Product Owners will get the tools they need to be successful in their important work.

    Key reasons to give your Product Owners this training:

    • The POs will prioritize better, keeping work focused on the right features and specifications, at the right time
    • Your management will more clearly see what is being done, and when
    • The POs will more efficiently manage stakeholders and communication
    • Your teams will have a better team spirit and be more self-organized
    • The POs will have a consistent - and consistently high - competence level throughout your organization

    • Practical tips for a successful refinement session
    • Anti-patterns of refinement
