Overview

Essential to the success of delivering large-scale initiatives using a Scaled Agile approach, organizations must be laser-focused on the continuous delivery of business value that incorporates scaling agile best practices. A critical part to this is ensuring well-defined implementation of Product Management and Product Owner roles, as well as the definition and management of agile content in the form of Epics, Features and User Stories driven by strategic business needs.

During this two-day course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the Agile Release Train (ART), how it delivers value and what you can do to effectively perform your role as a SAFe 4.5 Product Manager/Product Owner.

You 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, you’ll 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.
