Certified Scrum Product Owner Course with Roman Pichler
Learn from a leading expert how to effectively apply the product owner role and how to successfully manage and grow your product with Scrum. With more than ten years’ experience in teaching product owners, Roman knows exactly what tools and techniques product owners need to do their job well. He teaches this course as an interactive workshop using instructions and plenty of hands-on exercises.
Roman’s Scrum Certified Product Owner course was extremely well run and provided a 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.
