Agile for the Government Product Owner

In the Scrum framework for practicing agile, the Product Owner is the person who represents the business and user community, and is responsible for determining what features will be in the product release. This person is typically the project’s key stakeholder and is responsible for maximizing the business value of the product.

This step-by-step course will explain the concepts of agile in a government setting and empower you to start providing its benefits to your stakeholders. Please note this course is not aimed at the Project Manager who is managing the development team.

Work through these self-guided lessons at your own pace. They start with readings and videos, progressing to exercises that you can perform with your team to solidify concepts.
