A product owner creates, prioritizes, and owns the master list of features for the release called the Product Backlog. This course teaches the participants how to apply Agile techniques to creating and managing requirements reflected in the Product Backlog. The participants will understand how to write customer requirements using use cases and user stories with clear acceptance criteria, how to work with the customer to prioritize these requirements, how to work with development teams to plan and manage the release and how to use these skills within a large-scale, distributed environment. The course includes instructor experiences, case studies, and several in-class labs which will enable participants to build knowledge and skills through active participation instead of lectures.
This course is ideal for anyone in the organization who would like to learn about Agile development, its benefits, challenges and their role in the Agile methodology and practices.
