Agile Training Overview

This two-day course is aimed at individuals who are actively using Lean-Agile methods within their organization. To take its participants to the next level, this course delves into advanced topics relevant to the product owner role, including progressive and current thoughts in requirements gathering, defining user stories, spikes and acceptance criteria, managing technical requirements, specification by example, acceptance test-driven development, prioritization based on project economics, scaling the PO role, and Scrum events for large programs.  Additionally, this course offers in-depth coverage of the five levels of planning, focusing specifically on release planning and the preparation required to make it successful, as well as powerful discussions about organizing and managing the product management team.

Participants start by brainstorming many of the real-world challenges they face as product owners in a lean organization and then proceed to explore a multitude of topics surrounding the product owner role. Time to discuss potential solutions to the listed challenges is provided as the course progresses. The course concludes with a retrospective, providing the next steps servant leaders should take in guiding their teams to higher levels of performance.
