Successfully manage stakeholders and development teams
Being a successful product manager and Scrum product owner requires strong leadership: You have to direct and guide the stakeholders and development teams without having the authority to tell people what to do. This requires the ability to build trustful connections, to secure strong support for your decisions, and to skilfully deal with difficult people. Attending this workshop will increase your leadership skills. It will teach you how to align the stakeholders and guide the development team, both in the office and in a remote setting, and it will enable you to become an inspiring, inclusive product leader. This course is ideally suited for practicing product professionals who want to strengthen their people and leadership skills.
Roman teaches his courses as instructor-led workshops with a mix of lectures, discussions, hands-on exercises, and plenty of Q&A. You can find more information about Roman’s online training approach by visiting the Training FAQs.
