What you’ll get from this course
Product Ownership or Product Management is anything but trivial. A great Product Owner has the skills and capabilities to systematically address the uncertainties in building products that customers love and that work for the business.
It all starts out with understanding what problem needs to be solved or which customer desire needs to be addressed. We will deep dive into Design Thinking and learn a bunch of tools including the Empathy Map, the Value Proposition Canvas and Personas to better understand customers and capture the insights about them.
Then, we will use these insights to craft a compelling Product Vision/Goal and design a business model around it. We will demonstrate that the Business Model Canvas is great in making assumptions transparent and how these assumptions can be systematically tested.
Next, we will dive into the day-to-day work of any Product Owner i.e. creating, refining, and prioritizing a Product Backlog. You will learn how to support your Developers’ effort estimation and how the same technique can be applied for value estimation and ultimately prioritization.
Finally, we will share with you how great Product Owners create Product Roadmaps in an agile setting and how they track progress against that roadmap.
