Introduction to product ownership:

Learn the ways of thinking, tools and frameworks that will help deliver customer and business value via the development of products. You will be introduced to the product discipline and the concept of Product Ownership as a distinct value-focused craft that crosses many initiatives and applies to many roles. This will enable you to find value, test and measure it, communicate the value throughout the business and deliver it via product development. You will also understand the critical role (and not job title) that Product Owners play within Agile teams.
