Become an Inspiring Product Leader & Successfully Lead Stakeholders and Agile Dev Teams
Being a successful product manager and product owner requires strong leadership: You have to direct and guide the stakeholders and development team without having the authority to tell people what to do. This requires the ability to build trustful connections with individuals, to skilfully deal with difficult people, and to achieve strong support for your decisions. Attending this workshop will increase your leadership skills, show you how to lead the stakeholders and the development team, and help you become an inspiring product leader.
Roman teaches his courses as instructor-led workshops with a mix of lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises. This includes his online classes, which are live, interactive, and engaging. They cover the same content and use the same exercises as their classroom counterparts. You can find more information about Roman’s online training including testimonials on the online training page.
