Training System Analysis for Product Owners

Agile Scrum describes what a Product Owner should do, but hardly touches on how a Product Owner could do his or her work. The role of Product Owner has several similarities with the role of a System Analyst that may or may not be part of the development team.

In this training you will learn about best practices, models and techniques used by system analysts that have proven valuable to Product Owners. As a participant you will be presented  the responsibilities, activities and tasks of the System Analyst that are useful in your own area.  You will learn several useful practices.
