On the course you will learn what every good product owner should be able to do. In addition to the methodological basics, you will also learn how to prepare a product vision, a product roadmap and how to break down requirements into a product backlog.

This course aims to equip you with the basic knowledge and skills that any good product owner should be able to do. From the methodological basics from the point of view of agility, we will get to the explanation of the concept of the product in the agile world and why it is important to deliver business value instead of releasing.

We will also show you different ways to develop a product vision and a product roadmap. The use of so-called value-based roadmaps gives agile teams more space for autonomy, but also flexibility in the way requests are processed, so we will talk about how they differ from classic roadmaps.

Last but not least, we will get to the preparation of the product backlog, its structure, the correct writing of user stories and also the explanation of the basics of user story mapping. We’ll also go through a few techniques for prioritizing the Product Backlog. Many teams today are overloaded with a large number of parallel tasks. The focus of the team is shattered and the delivery takes longer than if we did the individual tasks sequentially. In this situation, prioritization and work in progress limit can help.
