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

Two weeks ago I participated in the Certified Scrum Product Owner course in Copenhagen, held by Mitch Lacey. I really enjoyed the training, as Mitch was capable of keeping everyone focused and interested with his way of presented and facilitated great discussions in the group. I learned a lot and got the chance to rethink some of the things I’ve been doing. I am sure it will help me to improve my own performance.

I attended Mitch’s Scrum Master training class and would recommend him to anyone looking to be Scrum Master certified. He is engaging and personable and provides excellent interactive exercises aimed at understanding the team structure and evolution to Agile/Scrum mindset.

I became CSM and CPO with Mitch Lacey as CST. All that I can say is that the courses were great and that Mitch besides being a great instructor he mixed the theory with is personal experience adding even more value to the courses. I recommend Mitch as a professional (Scrum and IT related) and mostly as a person (to go out and eat some pastéis de belém or the world best chocolate cake).He is definitely the guy you want as an instructor. He is 100% dedicated to his classes and sticks with the values of Agile. In fact, I even saw him do some push ups with a student, during the class, just to show everyone that you shouldn’t be late (Agile Principle: Respect).

I had the big privilege of attending Mitch’s Certified ScrumMaster Course. Mitch is a great teacher and communicator, and shows lots of knowledge on the subject. All the funny practical exercises allowed the students to gain a better understanding of the concepts underlying Scrum. Funny exercises also demonstrated in a very simple way, the value of working according the scrum framework. Mitch’s training is surely the best way to learn about Scrum!
