November 4: Arne Ahlander - Becoming a successful Product Owner

We're happy to announce our special guest from Sweden. On November 4th Arne Ahlander, Certified Scrum Trainer and Management 3.0 Facilitator will tell us how to become successful Product Owner.

Arne Ahlander: "Becoming a successful Product Owner"

It is far too common for a newly appointed Product Owner to be left alone without any instructions or ideas of how to succeed than we care to imagine. The role of the Product Owner is different from traditional roles and in order to survive as a Product Owner new learning is necessary. In order to become a successful Product Owner you don’t only need a vision, you also need good tools, principles and practices.

In this session I will go through a number of principles, tools and practices that can help you to become more successful in your role regardless if you are new in the role or more experienced. After the session you will have a collection of principles, tools and practices to apply directly when returning home after the conference.

Participants will learn:
  • Different ways of creating and communicating a product vision
  • Principles to follow in order to become a successful Product Owner
  • Tools and practices suitable for a Product Owner
