Roman's Product Owner course is probably one of the most valuable courses that I've ever attended. The unique and dynamic structure of the course really aided my own learning and allowed me to apply my previous knowledge in a practical way right from the beginning. I cannot commend Roman highly enough and his courses are a "must-attend" for anyone wanting to improve their product owner knowledge and skills.
Seth Rubin, Head of Product at Webgains
Roman's Scrum Certified Product Owner course was extremely well run and provided and great deal of value to me even though I had already been working as a Product Owner for a couple of years. The level of expertise Roman has was invaluable in both improving my Scrum skills and inspiring myself and the other people taking the course. If you ever have the opportunity to take a Scrum course run by Roman I'd highly recommend it.

I found the contents of the product owner course just right. I am pleased that I have already worked as a Scrum Product Owner at my company as this course has answered many questions for me. Roman is a good teacher. He’s very approachable and has a good sense of humour.
