Students will learn the fundamentals of Agile, how a Product Manager and Product Owner should interact with each other and engineering teams, all training content found in Product Owner Certification training courses as well as agile product management and team leadership skills.

Written by Agile expert Greg Cohen, author of the bestselling book Agile Excellence for Product Managers, the two-day course combines comprehensive content and exercises in a small group to bring to life the techniques needed to align Agile teams with demands. of the market. Upon completion of the course, students will be ready to take the online exam to earn the title of Product Manager and Certified Agile Product Owner (ACPMPO) from the Association of Product Marketing and Management (AIPMM).

Agile has become an increasingly popular software development methodology and comes with its own set of challenges. In a recent survey by Groupe 280, 69% of companies use Agile development methodologies. Of these companies, 70% of product managers also act as product owners. With its extensive content and highly interactive format, this course will transform the way the product management and product ownership professions interact in Agile software development environments.

“Our goal is to ensure that product managers and product owners acquire both the Agile and business skills to be successful,” said Brian Lawley, Founder and CEO of Group 280. “Students will acquire the skills to succeed with any flavor of Agile: Scrum, XP, Kanban Lean and Hybrid Agile processes. They will be significantly more effective as an agile product manager, product owner, and strategic businessman. The end result will be better software and products for consumers with bigger results for businesses around the world.
