The Product Owner is not simply another name for a project manager. It is a new role that combines product management with some traditional project management responsonsibilities. The product owner's responsibilities include creating and communicating a vision for the product, defining priorities, consolidating the needs of all stakeholders and working closely together with the development team.

More information about Scrum is available here:

We encourage all participants to read through the resources above in preparation for the course.


The Product Owner role is the focus of the course and the course is oriented towards people who will be taking over this role. It is also suitable for business analysts, product managers, line managers or Scrum Masters who want to deepen their understanding of Scrum product ownership.
