Develop the skillsets needed to guide the delivery of value in a Lean enterprise—and learn about the activities, tools, and mechanics used to manage backlogs and programs—by becoming a SAFe® 5 Product Owner/Product Manager (POPM). During this two-day course, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the Agile Release Train (ART), how it delivers value, and what they can do to effectively perform their role.
They will also learn how to apply Lean thinking to write Epics, break them down into Features and Stories, plan and execute Iterations, and plan Program Increments. Finally, attendees learn about the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate as Product Owners and Product Managers, and what it takes to relentlessly improve the ART.
St Mary’s University, in collaboration with Scaled Agile Gold Partner and ICAgile affiliate Appddiction Studio, are committed to providing educational continuity to all professional learners seeking the Agile mindset. To affirm this commitment, we are excited to announce our portfolio of SAFe® and ICAgile courses will now be offered, for the first time, in an online modality.
