For those wanting to learn how to think as product owner.




Working in an Agile way also implies using short feedback loops to continuously learn more about the product you are building. That asks for a different way of creating and managing business requirements and asks for taking ownership of a Product Backlog. In doing so it’s important to find a common language between the different stakeholders and visualization of the requirements helps you with that. With those visualisations you can create a shared vision and manage a flexible and continuously changing scope.


Instructor-led, a combination of theory and exercises.


When a team starts working with Agile, they often encounter a number of challenges concerning this continuously changing scope and incremental, value based delivery. The following questions may occure: How do we work with User Stories? How are we going to slice Features and prioritise them? Why is it important to slice and who is responsible for it? Is it possible to do the analysis work for the stories during the sprint? And which level of analysis is required? When is an item “ready” to be pulled into delivery?

Teams will gain more insight in these questions. We will look into them together and we will have a deep dive into Agile business requirements.
