Prior Knowledge
This course is all about Agile product ownership. It's designed to help your team increase the pace and quality of their work on Agile projects and get the right products built to maximize value to the customer. If you're new to Agile or unfamiliar with some of the basic Agile terms and concepts, then you may wanna watch the Agile at Work series with Doug Rose. It offers a great introduction to Agile and explains how the teams work. This course focuses specifically on the product owner role on Agile teams. It's great for all business leaders, business analysts, product and project managers, and anyone on an Agile team who needs to better understand how to determine what gets built

Exercise Files
If you have access to the exercise files for this course you can download them to your desktop. In this course, we will use an example that focuses on a mobile app for a health club. I've included a file with summary information to go along with many of the videos throughout the course. I've also included a file on a day in the life of a product owner to assist you in understanding more about what a typical day looks like.

Product Owner 101

1
Where Do Product Owners Come From?
u're not alone if you're wonderingabout how the product owner role came to be.After all, there is no major in collegetitled product owner and it's rarely an entry-level job.So what is a product owner's background?Product owners come from a variety of placesin the organization and much depends on the typeof organization and what type of product is being built.
2
How To Be A Successful Product Owner
On agile teams, the focus on collaborationshould not be minimized,and this applies to the product owner, too.As an integral part of the agile team,the product owner has a large mission.A full time product owner interactswith many roles in the organizationand on the team through facilitating,face to face meetings, collaborating,and influencing.Let's look at each role more specifically.First, the scrum master, project manager or team lead

How To Make A Great Product

1
Product Vision
Do you ever feel like you need a crystal ballfor a project and a product?What are we really building?Without a product vision, direction is misunderstood,the team feels disconnected, disagreement andmisunderstanding happens on the team as each individualsideas of the vision take over.
2
Product Roadmap
When driving somewhere I'm unfamiliar with,I like a map.I am visual.I study it before leaving the houseand use it along the way.Creating a roadmap for a product is no different.We're building new visions and productsand need a path to get there.
3
Product Value And Risk
One product owner often can't do it all.It's a big job.Perhaps as a product owner,the project is just part of your job,making it nearly impossible to fulfill the missionand vision of a great product owner
4
Minimum Viable Product 101
You've probably heard the term MVPin an Agile context and we're not talking aboutmost valuable player.MVP in Agile stands for Minimum Viable Product.It's the version of a product that balances cost,risk and value.It's a term that is thrown around a lotand yet, few really understand.Minimum Viable Product is about making surewe do not over-engineer a productand find out later it's not what was needed.Or under-engineer a product and discoverit was too little, too late.
5
Product Backlog
o, you're assigned a new projector perhaps you've inherited oneand you're the product owner.Whatever the case, the team needs a backlog to get started.A backlog is a prioritized list ofwhat the team will deliver

How To Make A Agile Plan

1
Agile Planning
There is a myth that planning doesn't happen in Agileand I can't stress enough that this is a complete myth.Planning is critical to success.But it does look different than Traditional Projects.- [Narrator] In Agile, a product vision, road map,release plan, and other planning tools are usedbefore a sprint even starts.They're used as inputs to the product backlogand continuously updated as the team works through sprints.
2
Agile Release Plans
Every release should be somethingyour end customer can useand improves the product from their perspective.Traditional or waterfall projects often plan releasesbased on technology or architecture components.
3
Grouping User Stories Into Epics Features and Themes
Have you ever wanted to change somethingor improve it after you've had a chance to use it.Well many times, a prototype or experimenthelps us try out a few ideas, see what works best,and learn new things.A prototype or experiment in Agiledoes not validate an existing theory.Instead, it discovers things we did not previously know.
4
Backlog Grooming
Refining the backlog is an ongoing focusof the product owner and a hefty taskthat requires daily attention.It involves continually estimating, analyzing,prioritizing, and breaking down stories,in order to ensure the upcoming sprintshave what the team needs to keep delivering.

Day In The Life Of A Agile Product Owner

Whats Your Day Look Like
Being a product owner is a full-time job and more. If it's a part-time role for you, your project may be in trouble. Many teams also use a business analyst as part of the product owner team to take on some of the work, because the workload is really that intense.
2
Key Competencies You Will Need
The product owner role is challenging and exciting,and it takes a skilled professional to defineand guide the creation of strategic and inspiring products.Among the many critical skills needed arerelationship skills, analytical skills,decision making skills, and leadershipand communication skills.In addition
