When you’re in charge of running complex business projects, the traditional approach is to hand off much of the undertaking to one or more project managers. Once the work is “delegated”, you sit back and hope for the best. Unfortunately, statistics show that over 50% of projects fail. The projects that do succeed often result in products weighed down with functions that offer little value to the end user.
So what’s the answer? As the Product Owner, you have a keen insight into what needs to be done, and you have the high-level perspective to understand the needs of your end users. Scrum provides a simple, efficient way for you to directly manage your projects. During our 2-day Scrum Product Owner certification class in Madison, Wisconsin, you’ll learn how to be an effective Product Owner within the Scrum framework.
The lightweight, intuitive framework enables your team to deliver fully completed increments of a project at regular, frequent intervals. Rather than waiting months – or even years – before you see a completed project, Scrum allows a team to put out the most valuable functionality and elements of a project first. By working this way, you eliminate the risk factor early on, and you deliver a final product that better meets the needs and desires of the end user.
Of course, this new way of operating presents a whole new set of skills and tools. If you’ve spent years in project management, Scrum might require a considerable paradigm shift. But not to worry! During our 2-day Scrum Product Owner certification class in Madison, Wisconsin, you’ll gain the skills, tools, and techniques you need to be a successful, involved and productive Product Owner.

Simple training at our 2-day Scrum Product Owner certification class in Madison, Wisconsin, along with a bit of good old-fashioned determination will set you well on the path to fantastic results.
