Certified Scrum Product Owner®

The Product Backlog is the tool that provides transparency to the team's work to ensure we optimize the business value delivered. The Product Owner is accountable for managing the Product Backlog, however, Scrum is not very prescriptive over how the Product Owner manages the backlog. There are explicit rules however to keep in mind when deciding how to prioritize work for your team as well as validating their work during the sprints.

Working on a Scrum Team (Team Based Training)

The agile Scrum development process continues to gain popularity across a wide variety of businesses and products. Educating the entire team(s) involved has a profound effect on kick-starting the process and resolving challenges that can be discovered within the course itself.

This two-day course, provides teams with the full context of what it means to be agile and how we can get there with the use of a core framework called Scrum. Many teams have individuals with experiences that are far and wide in the agile space; diluting a common understanding for your organization.

This course is designed to give teams a hands-on understanding of current agile concepts and how implementing the Scrum framework can actually accelerate their ability to ship software as frequently as the business desires. With the liberal use of exercises and discussions, team members learn why Scrum's seemingly simple processes can have a profound effect on the organization.

Teams will also learn practical advice they can leverage all the way from the trenches to the Executive offices. We focus on working with core Scrum techniques and activities; including the product backlog, sprint backlog, metrics, daily scrum meetings, sprint planning meeting, and burn-down charts.

Transformation

Any change is hard. Agile takes a lot of discipline and rigor to truly reach the state in which you desire. We can help you plan the transition to ensure any training/coaching can offer the maximum impact and help you grow the agile processes organically in your organization. Our job is to make sure you need us less and less as you gain maturity. That first step is sometimes the hardest; let us help and provide the safety and comfort needed throughout the change.

Consulting

Sometimes, you just need validation or a second opinion. Effort that is well outside of any focused coaching, training, or transformation. Contact us to see how we can help you best. Having an assessment on your organization could be the best first step for your teams.
