    Course Description66% of software features are rarely or never used. Making the right product decisions, building the right features, and incorporating feedback is the difference between building products that satisfy customers and building products that delight and engage them.As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of Product Owner, the person tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, the one who ultimately determines what gets built.The BigVisible Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a 2-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum.

Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can apply to their own projects and teams.Agenda & Learning ObjectivesOur CSPO course covers a broad range of topics, including:How Scrum helps organizations cope with change, budget constraints, quality issues, and moreThe product owner role and how it differs from traditional roles, such as business analystWays to manage the product backlog and write effective user storiesPragmatic practices for managing and communicating the scope and vision of a productHow to partner effectively with a development teamStrategies for delivering faster by taking advantage of the iterative, incremental nature of ScrumCourses typically run from 8:30am to 5:00pm, though the exact hours may vary. Coffee and juice in the morning, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided and are included in the course price. These informal breaks are outstanding opportunities to visit and network with your trainer and classmates.Intended AudienceThis course is appropriate for stakeholders, business analysts, managers, product owners, and anyone who wants to understand what agile and Scrum are all about from the product-owner perspective.

    Leo Kottke

    246 Tremont Street

    A man and a guitar. This pairing can warrant unlimited results. Many modern traveling minstrels have banked off it and Leo Kottke is one of them. The Athens, Georgia-based musician released his first LP in 1969 and since then he has had a storied career as a professional guitar player. Kottke's prowess on his instrument typically astounds people and helps shift attention away from the fact that Kottke hardly ever sings. Playing a unique style of roots, folk and bluegrass, to name a few genres Kottke dabbles in, the virtuosic acoustic guitar plucker has come to be known over the years as one of the leading talents of his generation.
