About the course:

There is a growing demand for Product Owner or Manager positions, but often these roles are limited to the so-called Proxy PO (Backlog Manager). Such positions primarily focus on managing the product backlog, creating tasks for the product team and providing reports to the management at the end of each sprint. Important aspects such as product value, customer satisfaction, user feedback or A/B testing are unfortunately often not part of their job, as these areas drive management decisions.


The course content is divided into two main parts. The first part focuses on recognizing the value of your current position, the expectations placed on it by the company, and the challenges that need to be faced. It is also essential to identify the expectations you have of the role.


The second half of the course emphasizes the practical development of skills and communication skills that are critical to being a successful Product Owner or Manager.
