When starting to work in an Agile environment there are a lot of questions. Where do I fit in the new organisation? How do I make sure the things I need are being done? How do I know when things will be delivered?
Good handling of the product backlog and its contents is crucial to the success of Agile organisations. But even with that known, it is surprisingly hard to get a starting point for Product Owners and Product Managers alike.
This two day course addresses that need by providing tools and practices for developing and maintaining a product backlog, teaching you how to visualise your product backlog in order to collaborate better with your stakeholders, showing you how to use backlog refinement to provide the right level of information for the teams who will be working on the items, and giving you the tools for collaborative requirement creation in this new world.
