Product Owner for Nonprofits

Scrum is simple. Try it as is and determine if its philosophy, theory, and structure help to achieve goals and create value.

Scrum is founded on empiricism and lean thinking. Empiricism asserts that knowledge comes from experience and making decisions based on what is observed. Lean thinking reduces waste and focuses on the essentials.

The Product Owner is accountable for maximizing the value of the product resulting from the work of the Scrum Team. How this is done may vary widely across organizations, Scrum Teams, and individuals. The Product Owner is also accountable for effective Product Backlog management, which includes:

● Developing and explicitly communicating the Product Goal;

● Creating and clearly communicating Product Backlog items;

● Ordering Product Backlog items; and,

● Ensuring that the Product Backlog is transparent, visible and understood.

The Product Owner may do the above work or may delegate the responsibility to others. Regardless, the Product Owner remains accountable. For Product Owners to succeed, the entire organization must respect their decisions. These decisions are visible in the content and ordering of the Product Backlog, and through the inspectable Increment at the Sprint Review. The Product Owner is one person, not a committee. The Product Owner may represent the needs of many stakeholders in the Product Backlog. Those wanting to change the Product Backlog can do so by trying to convince the Product Owner.

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Name the key attributes of a good Product Owner;
  • Explain that the Product Owner should be focused on building the right thing, and is responsible for clearly communicating their vision and developing a Product Backlog to achieve that vision;
  • Recite techniques for creating a vision statement that is compelling enough to be broadly shared, yet concise and easily remembered;
  • Describe why the Product Owner should spend half of their time with customers and stakeholders and the other half of their time with the team;
  • State that the Product Owner is accountable for maximizing the value of the work done by the team;
  • Explain the benefits of using customer personas; and
  • Recognize that the Product Owner has the final say on the ordering of the Product Backlog.
  • Benefits of Scrum Product Owner credential:
  • Highly regarded, industry-recognized credential;
  • Sets you apart as a leader with proven expertise;
  • Most popular Agile framework in use;
  • Evidence-based techniques for consistently delivering high value to stakeholders;
  • Empower team productivity and collaboration; and
  • Stay competitive in today’s job market.
