Product Owners encounter many challenges. What is the right product to build? How do we do it in a way that solves the right business problem? How can we develop a clear product vision that aligns with the organisational strategy? How can we design experiments to test we are achieving the customer’s true needs? All of this while working in an environment of change and uncertainty!
This course addresses these needs in a practical, hands-on way, based on how we coach, mentor and grow product owners in our daily consulting work. Learn from practising experts, not trainers.
This is NOT a certified course. Our focus is on helping people achieve success by sharing the hands-on tools, techniques and mindset we use with our clients in our daily consulting work. We believe in sharing what works at the coalface, not theory.
Certification bodies restrict our ability to achieve this therefore we are progressively moving away from certified courses.
Who is it for?
This course is ideal for anyone involved in leading product development including:
- Product Owners & Managers
- Business Analysts
- Scrum Masters and agile coaches needing to develop a better understanding of Product Ownership
- Agile Project Managers
The course focuses on the four key areas:
Product Management/Ownership – creating clarity on the Agile Product Owner role and day to day accountabilities. Learn the leadership style to successfully work with agile teams.
Strategic Alignment – How create a shared vision that aligns with the overall business strategy. Learn how to clearly articulate your product goals and objectives using a range of modern tools and techniques.
Prioritisation – to how to design meaningful Product & Sprint Goals, how to ordering the Product Backlog, how to forecast and making meaningful trade-off decisions.
Value – Define what value is, how to measure it, how to view it through the eyes of the customer, and what value means to your business. Understand how to manage value at multiple levels from strategic to portfolio, down to feature. You will apply a number of modern practical tools, canvases and techniques that you can immediately apply at your workplace.
Product Ownership is such a vitally important part of agile. Agile ways of working can increase the speed of delivery, but without a clear Product Ownership, you can easily end up in the wrong place, faster. Through this course, you will gain the thinking, tools and techniques to become an effective product owner, capable of leading agile teams.
What other people said
I entered this Agile PO course with Radically as a traditional BA with a good understanding of agile and aspirations on becoming a PO. This course showed me the ropes, helped me multiple times on every stage of a project, my day-to-day accountabilities and eventually becoming a PO myself. One of the things that I liked most was the use of the facilitator’s own personal real-life examples as he grew within the product world and adapted it at every section of the course. I loved how every example also explained a specific recommended tool that could aid in situations such as the use of story mapping when defining MVP. I found the experience resourceful, practical and fun. I would recommend this course to any growing BA, to any PO looking to grow in the agile product world.
Our next classes will be held on the 25th and 26th of March, in Auckland.
