Through a case study-based series of exercises, combined with instruction, students gain the entrepreneurial product leadership skills and practices critical to growing as a successful Product Owner.
The Product Owner role is multifaceted, requiring them to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum framework. Students explore these techniques and how to pivot among them by exploring several Product Owner "stances" including:
The Customer Representative
Focus on understanding customer problems, pains and opportunities
Get into the mindset of the customer, placing yourself in their world, understanding their needs
Deliver value by connecting product features to customer outcomes
Champion the future state, possibilities, goals and chances
Communicate the product vision, strategy and Product Goal
Understand value and pricing models
Focus on innovation through experiments, hypotheses, tests, learnings, data and validation of value
Understand the Product Owner’s role in a scaled environment
The Decision Maker
Focus on making better decisions
Navigate conflicting customer feedback
Seek collaboration with stakeholders and the Scrum Team
Work beyond the Scrum Team including contracts, finance, budgeting and governance in an agile way
Lead the stakeholders, customers and Scrum Team, to move in the right direction and to change their minds, when necessary
Learn how to create a stakeholder management strategy
Learn different stances that Product Owner takes in order to navigate everyday challenges
Discover current additional practices through discussions, case studies, and exercises
Get a clear understanding of Agile Product Management and continue Product Owner journey

With a background as a developer, Roman was first introduced to the Agile world in 2007 through his very first job in an eXtreme Programming team. Years later, Roman discovered that there are other ways of working, involving handoffs, excess documentation, bureaucracy and boredom. These experiences inspired Roman to help guide workplaces and organizations towards being meaningful and purpose driven.
Since 2013, Roman has been focusing on product development and product management expertise. Roman’s areas of interest lay within product development and cutting edge engineering practices.
He is a big fan of data and quantitative analytics and also loves metrics and measurements.
What other people say
Great training. Really enjoyed Cesario’s interactive training methods. He did a great job tailoring the content of the course to the needs of the group.
I can recommend this training to anyone who wants to understand SCRUM beyond just passing the assessment.

I had been working as a Scrum Product Owner for quite some time before taking the Product Owner course from Cesario. It was a great experience, as there was a lot of time for questions and to go more in depth into the subject matter. It really helped me to become a better product owner!
Cesario is a very experienced trainer with lots of real-world examples. Besides that he is a nice and warm person with a true heart for SCRUM, LeSS, Lean and Agile. This made the course very inspiring and worthwile!
