“Beyond the User Story”, an Interactive Immersive #Bootcamp for Product Owners


The effectiveness of the whole Scrum framework, starts with the role of the Product Owner. #nopressure If this role is not staffed by a dedicated, prepared, empowered and decisive leader – you may have trouble brewing.

Job descriptions from local firms are looking for product owners to be decisive, know how to navigate the organization, negotiate, facilitate, manage projects and more. These are the minimum skills needed to be successful. And that’s the what…

In 15+ years of studying this role, being in this role, coaching this role and developing strategies for success, I’ve discovered it can come down few important steps that can help this role to be successful. And its here for you, in this immersive!

This is a course on how to maximize the value of products and systems. This bootcamp will take you beyond the User Story and will help you gain the know-how, finesse and skills needed to be successful beyond the basics.
