Learn how to be a successful product owner

This course explores the critical role of the product owner in successful product delivery, and gives you the tools to become a better product owner. It’s for product owners, aspiring product owners, and anyone who works with project teams and has responsibility for results.

You’ll be challenged to put theory into practice through a variety of exercises and simulations, and to think through your own product ideas for yourself. As well as learning a range of techniques you’ll also gain a deeper understanding of Scrum and agile principles – not just the how but the why. It’s a potent foundation for working with Scrum and agile in your own organisation.

As Agile ways of working are increasingly adopted by organisations seeking to innovate faster and deliver better products, the majority are using Scrum as their framework. Scrum is a deceptively simple framework, but it is highly adaptive and has a significant impact on traditional organisational models. So if you’re to work successfully with it as a product owner, your knowledge needs to go deeper.

How the course works

On this course you’ll quickly learn about Scrum’s roles, artefacts and meetings. But you’ll also grasp its fundamental underlying principles and the tools and techniques needed to implement it truly successfully. You’ll explore important user-centred techniques that will help you drive product development using metrics and outcomes – in other words, measuring what difference your product actually makes.

The course learning is supported by hands-on exercises and simulations that put the theory into practice. After some initial learning, you will go on to explore your own digital product ideas, before finally working on a product all the way from start to finish – or ‘vision to value’. This will help you understand the entire journey a product goes on before it reaches its customers.

Even people who have been practising Scrum for more than five years have found value in the course. It provides a great foundation in Scrum, agile and lean principles for product owners.

What you'll come away with

After successfully completing the course, you will be designated as Certified Scrum Product Owner. This Scrum Alliance certification includes a two-year membership of the Scrum Alliance.

You’ll have learned what a product owner is and how they function within the Scrum framework, and have gained tools and techniques to become a better product owner. You will know how to validate assumptions about a product idea, take the idea forward, understand your customers and manage stakeholders, and work with a product backlog.

Venue:   Live online

The live online courses will be delivered over Zoom video conferencing, all you will need is a computer, internet connection and to situate yourself somewhere quiet.

A headset with mic would be advisable, though not essential.

Theses courses will be delivered in small groups (3 or 4 people) and will break out into virtual rooms for any group discussion and group exercises on key topics. We ensure there is a balance of experience across the groups in order to share experiences, as we find delegates learn as much off each other as they  do from the trainer.

We have tried to maintain as much of the interactive nature of our in-person training when transferring courses online.  Whilst the lack of physicality limits what we can do, a number of the exercises do transfer.


  • Trainer: Zia Malik

    For Zia Malik, organisational change doesn’t just mean adopting new processes and working in new ways. It isn’t even simply about thinking in new ways. True transformation requires challenging beliefs, and that means changing people from the inside.

    Zia is one of a small number of UK Certified Enterprise Coaches with the Scrum Alliance, and an experienced agile trainer, Certified Scrum Trainer CST and professionally trained coach in business and personal coaching, accredited by the International Coach Federation. He has worked as an enterprise coach in a range of industries including fintech, aerospace, pharma and retail, working with individuals, teams and organisations.

    He works with frameworks such as Scrum, but recognises that these don’t exist in a vacuum. People work within them and adapt to them, and Zia spends much of his time focusing on the psychological motivations and barriers involved in personal and organisational change. Ultimately it’s about moving from structures and mindsets inherited from the Industrial Revolution towards a smarter way of organising ourselves.

    Zia’s training and coaching is both inspiring and thought-provoking, aimed at giving people a set of tools, techniques and concepts they can use to achieve and sustain genuine transformation.
