Training Project Management for Product Owners

Agile Scrum describes what a Product Owner should do, but hardly touches on the aspect on how a Product Owner could do his or her work. The role of Product Owner has several similarities with the role of a Project Manager. Learning the practices of a project manager that relate to product ownership will give you the right skills to perform your job.

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