Course Outline

  • Overview of Scrum - We will review the Scrum framework, expanding on all elements of the framework.

    The Product Backlog - The Product Backlog is the key to any successful Scrum team. We will explore what comprises a good Product Backlog, techniques for managing it, and what happens when it goes unattended.

    Stocking the Product Backlog - What elements make a good Product Backlog? What do we do with our users, and how do we handle technical stories? We go deep with ways to build a great product backlog to ensure a successful project.
  • Prioritizing the Product Backlog - Having a prioritized Product Backlog is key if the team is to ensure their project is not in the 52% of projects that fail objectives. We will look at steps that can be used to ensure a prioritized backlog.

    Product Owner Responsibilities & Traits - Who can be Product Owner? Is it the Product or Project manager? We will expand on what the role of the Product Owner is and elements of great Product Owners worldwide.

    Release Planning & Management - Knowing when things should be done is key. Knowing how to figure this out is essential to a successful project. We explore estimation units and the various levels of planning used in agile projects.

Customer Testimonials

had the pleasure of attending the Certified Scrum Product Owner course with Mitch in Lisbon. 2 immersive and rich days that gave good insights with plenty of real life examples. Mitch is a clear communicator with a complete and real knowledge of SCRUM, making possible a quality, personal and fast pace Certification.

Hugo Fragoso
Product Manager, Exago Markets

Mitch was probably the best trainer I ever had. I attended his Certified ScrumMaster 2-days course and it was simply awesome. He was able to clearly convey all the course content, while keeping the attendance totally focused and asking for more. His usage of real-world examples and the exercises we were asked to do were very effective. And listening to Mitch is real fun!

Helder Pinto
CTO, Unisign

I recently took Mitch’s CSM course in Bellevue, WA on May 21-22, 2013 as a fun break during my recent job search to reinforce my skills and gain a certification.

In the two days of course delivery, Mitch very effectively balanced the both the time constraints and the volume of content, all the while maximizing the entertainment value with relevant stories and team exercises. Most importantly, he practiced what he preached by delivering the course using the structure of Scrum via four sprints split between the morning and afternoon sessions across the two days.

I highly recommend Mitch Lacey for CSM training. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and easily passed the certification exam that week without any extra study.

Versatile Project Manager

My company, The Regence Group, brought Mitch in to provide ScrumMaster training to about 30 employees in January of 2011. The short recommendation is WOW! I’ve spent 15 years in IT and this is the best, most relevant course I have ever had the pleasure to attend.

I have a great deal of project management experience but am fairly new to agile methodologies and have had a hard time changing my mindset. However, the combination of Mitch’s presentation of the material, his real world examples, and fun class exercises/activities helped me both to grasp the overall picture and identify ways to improve Regence’s implementation of the methodology.

In fact, I liked the training so much that I visited his website to find out about other training opportunities and then approached my management about attending. When informed there was no training budget I decided to pursue the training at my own expense, which I NEVER considered doing prior to this class.

In short, if you are looking for a fantastic Scrum training experience, Mitch is your man. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
