Effectively execute the role of the product owner or product manager.

In this two- or three-day (remote) training you will develop the skills necessary to manage value creation in a Lean enterprise using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®). You will learn about the activities, tools and mechanisms used to manage backlogs and programs.

You will learn how to apply Lean Thinking to writing Epics, how to break them down into features and stories, how to plan and execute iterations and program increments. As an attendee, you will also learn about the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate Product Owner and Product Manager, and what it takes to relentlessly improve ART.
