How do we ensure that the right product is built in the right way to most effectively solve the right business problem? To answer this question, product owners need clarity of vision, alignment with organisational strategy, an understanding of the development process and the ability to communicate with a wide variety of stakeholders.

Our course focuses on business value, the leadership needed to ensure product fit, and how these practices work in an agile development process. You will also cover value management, and how collaboration is so important to identify the most important aspects and features of a product.
