About course

Professional and successful product managers understand how important their role is in the product development process. In the Scrum philosophy the role of the Product Owner is emphasized: she is part of the Scrum Team, has to be available to the developers, and needs to work with her requirements all the time – updating, prioritizing, clarifying and accepting the work for the developers.
