What you need to know as a Scrum Product Owner
– 1 page at a time
For starters, there’s Scrum itself with its specific vocabulary: sprint, product backlog, retrospective, definition of done, … Then there’s product management, both outside of Scrum and solutions particularly invented in and for agile environments. Oh, and you will be a much more successful Product Owner if you’re a decent facilitator, so you better add that to the pile. Phew, so much to learn and so few hours in the day.
You could go ahead and read lots of books and blog posts. Attend trainings and workshops. Mull it all over. Try stuff out. See what works and what doesn’t. In fact, you should. Knowing more and applying it, is never a bad idea. It will just take a whole lot of time.
What if you could bring that time down significantly by learning the basics of agile software development and the Scrum framework in an easily accessible format? What if you could get the key facilitation methods and concepts handed to you on a silver platter? And what about helpful summaries about tried and true as well as upcoming product management techniques?
Fortunately, “Skills for successful Product Owners” is here to deliver! Each 1-pager explains 1 core topic so that you can digest it in record time: Get an overview and pick up the Scrum lingo. Become familiar with the specific mindset of agile people in no time. Learn facilitation techniques that give you maximum bang for minimum study time. Check out a range of product management methods so that you’ll know which one to pick for your specific challenges. And this book will take you even further, beyond Scrum, to topics that are related and help you become a better, more knowledgeable Product Owner.
