Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management Skills

Live Virtual Class, January 23, 2024

Class Overview

The Product Backlog is an emergent, ordered list of what is needed to improve the product. It is the single source of work undertaken by the Scrum Team. It changes constantly and requires a Product Owner to consider many options when adding to it, deleting from it, updating it, and ordering it. 

Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management Skills™ is an interactive course designed to help Scrum practitioners improve their ability to manage all aspects of the Product Backlog and stakeholder communication. 

Course Overview

In this one-day* skills-building course, participants will learn techniques and methods to manage a Product Backlog that clearly expresses the future vision of the product and brings transparency to what is most valuable for the Scrum Team to work on to delight stakeholders and customers. They will get hands-on experience with refinement techniques such as decomposing and slicing Product Backlog Items, and address how simplicity can cure complicated and complex Product Backlogs. 

Students will be able to connect the Product Goals they are investing in to the work being done as well as how to understand and manage their relationships with the stakeholders involved.
