Combining OKRs and Agile

Agile Product Owner

Product Owner or Super hero?

Do your product owners struggle with prioritisation?

Do your product owners struggle to forecast beyond the current sprint?

There is more to being a product owner than changing a job title. Product Owner certification training is a start but there is a lot more to the role.

With responsibility for work prioritisation the Product Owner is the most important role on any agile team.

This product owner coaching programme aims to equip product owners with the skills and tools to become outstanding. Topics covered include:

  • Working within an agile team: ceremonies, story writing, backlog management, acceptance criteria and much more.
  • Understanding stakeholders and customers, e.g. using analytics, interviewing customers, identifying stakeholders.
  • Advance “lean start up” type techniques, e.g. hypothesis driven development and experimentation with minimal viable products.
