If you are interested in building a new product or service, Scrum and the product owner courses are great for that line of thinking.
If you work in complex environments where the product or solution isn’t known beforehand, scrum is a great way to build products and services.
It will allow you to inspect and adapt as you move forward.
In theory, you are forming a hypothesis and testing that hypothesis through a series of controlled, well-thought through experiments.
In essence, you are trying things out and learning through the process. You are taking elements that work and building on each solution through a process of iteration.
As you navigate your way through all the opportunities, you really get to understand what your customers want and how to solve their problem most effectively.
Sometimes, you begin to uncover what the real problems are and learn through that process of iteration how to effectively solve those problems in a compelling and creative manner.
We are also going to look at the role of a product owner in Scrum which sits really well in an entrepreneur’s wheelhouse.
It’s about creating a vision for a product, a purpose and a mission for the product that inspires others.
It gives you a platform to motivate why you want to make a change to a product or service and what that change is going to be. The tools and frameworks allow you to communicate that effectively to your team and inspire them to create products and services that truly delight customers.
The course teaches you how to transform a somewhat nebulous vision for the future of the product and/or service into concrete and actionable steps for your development team.
You’ll learn how to create a product backlog of items and work with your team to prioritise those items in order of highest value and greatest priority.
As an entrepreneur, you are perfectly positioned to thrive in the role of a product owner within your own organisation.
The course will also focus on decision-making, how to inform your decisions and how to go out and gather data that supports your line of reasoning.
In essence, data that proves or disproves a hypothesis.
All of these skills are vital to the success of an entrepreneur and will help your organisation thrive in times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
