This course will teach the new product owner how to envision a product and drive out good requirements that can be prioritized to reduce project risk and maximize return on investment. The course will start from the beginning of a business need and derive the project and backlog of work starting from scratch. Requirements prioritization and estimation will be thoroughly examined through a series of exercises and advanced topics, such as tracking, metrics, and how to negotiate the needs of multiple stakeholders will be covered in the course. Common pitfalls and techniques to avoid those pitfalls will be thoroughly explored with multiple hands on exercises.

Course Outline

​Scaled Professional ScrumTM helps teams scale with minimum waste and as much productivity as possible.  SPS drives to the heart of the scaling issue – complexity caused by the dependencies between the increased parts. Scaled Professional Scrum is a product for those who want to scale with minimum waste and as much productivity as possible. It will fill a gap for those who are having trouble setting up and running their projects, programs, and releases. 

It consists of the Nexus™ framework and approximately 40 practices which cause the Nexus to operate predictably. The Nexus is the exoskeleton of scaled Scrum that integrates and brings coherence to the work of up to 9 Scrum teams. It creates a communication pathway that identifies and resolves dependencies. It builds on the existing Scrum framework and values. The result is an effective development group of up to 100 people using best industry practices to create solid increments. For larger initiatives, creating product families or interoperating functional units, we create Nexus +, a unification of more than one Nexus.
