Become a Certified SAFe® Product Owner / Product Manager

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) is the leading framework for how to scale agile for the entire organisation. SAFe® relates not only to the work of the individual team but also to the program and portfolio level.

In this SAFe Product Owner / Product Manager course, you learn about driving value in the agile organisation. You will gain in-depth insight into the role of SAFe Product Owner in an agile team, into the role of SAFe Product Manager in an agile program and into Scrum, as the team's working method. All this is put in context by SAFe® as the company's framework.

The course also gives you an agile toolbox for working with requirements in development projects. We work with market rhythms, customer understanding and product understanding and release planning. In addition, we work on how to write good Epics, Features and User Stories.

We also offer these courses within SAFe®:
