Scrum is a simple but powerful agile management framework. Key to its success is the role of the Product Owner: The Product Owner steers and guides the Scrum project, bridges the gap between end customers, business and development/IT and is responsible for the return on investment (ROI). The Product Owner combines the traditional project manager and the product manager roles in one person.

At the end of the class, you will understand how you can leverage Scrum to optimise value creation and customer satisfaction. You will be able to create a realistic release plan, stock the product backlog, write user stories, and systematically refine requirements.
