Agile Actors #learning is organising a 2-day (or 4 half day) Professional Scrum Product Owner course delivered by PSPO course steward, Ralph Jocham.
Professional Scrum Product Owner™ is a course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where participants experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts.
The course objectives are:

What will you learn
Over the duration of the course, participants will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective.
