Course Overview

The Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management Skills course is an interactive course designed to help Scrum practitioners improve their ability to manage all aspects of the Product Backlog and stakeholder communication

Learn what it means for your Product Backlog to be an emergent, ordered list of what is needed to improve the product; the single source of work undertaken by the Scrum Team.

How to deal with the Product Backlog changing constantly, and what it takes from a Product Owner to consider the many options available to them, when adding to, deleting from, updating, and ordering it.

 

Who should attend?

This course is ideal for:

  • Product Owners, or anyone looking for practical ways to manage their Stakeholders and Product Backlog.
  • Professionals interested in learning essential Product Owner practises.
  • Scrum Masters wishing to be an effective coach to Product Owners.
  • Anyone looking to improve their Product Backlog management skills, including Product Managers, Business Analysts, Scrum Coaches, Agile Coaches, and Consultants.

 

This course assumes a certain level of confidence with Scrum, so is not suitable for professionals with little Scrum knowledge or experience.

 

Learning Experience and Format

The course is delivered either in-person or virtually via Zoom, as specified in the Location field, over one day. The classroom times run from 9 – 5PM UTC+0.

Both methods are delivered using an engaging mix of collaborative exercises, liberating structures, and group discussions – all facilitated by your trainer.

Whilst we do follow a curriculum, how it is delivered from course to course is never quite the same as another. We do this to ensure the experience is adapted to meet your needs and set you up for success!
