Product Owner

The Product Owner, who is responsible for working with Product Management and other parties, plays an important role in maximizing the value produced by the development team, which is the customer representative. No agile team can work effectively without a Product Owner who, despite the agile and fast pace of product development, ensures that the team maintains a unified view of the product. Our course is designed for beginners who want to feel the motivation to develop a new product, assess the value of the business, prioritize the features of the product. The combination of interactive trainings throughout the course will help you gain practical experience as a Product Owner and prepare for the Agile software development task.
