Build the Right Product - Product Ownership Training - With Certification

Master the way to Maximize the Value of Agile Product Teams
Mia Kolmodin Dandy People

This course is held in Swedish if nothing else is requested by the participants. It can also be held on other locations and in English, as well as an internal training for your company.

This is a 2-day training where you’ll learn how to work hands-on in a human-centered process for innovation where Design Thinking (research), Lean UX (hypothesis-driven ideation and continuous validation) and Agile development (Scrum) fits together. With collaborative work in a cross-functional team you will go from business problem to impact goal, to learning about the users, to exploring ideas and designing paper prototypes and validating your assumptions, and prioritizing continuously. At the end of the two days, you will have created a sliced user story map with your MVP strategy and you are ready to start delivering and validating your product in your Agile scrum team. This is modern product development.

These are all skills needed to act as a Product Owner for one or several Agile Product Teams, also known as Scrum Teams. With this training as a basis, you will be able to take the Product Owners Certification via Scrum.org. Read more about it further down.

We speak Swedish or English depending on the audience – let us know your preferred language upon signup and we will make sure to accommodate your needs.

In this training, you and your team will get a defined process and a powerful toolbox for innovation with short feedback loops and a clear connection to Scrum and Agile product development. If you do this continuously in your organization you will have no more handoffs, giving you much shorter time to market, very little waste, and great possibilities to improve and adapt the process and product over time. It will be the easiest and cheapest way to innovate and test new strategies and products.

The training is also suitable for teams who want to become more T-shaped and learn how to better collaborate and work together in an efficient and structured manner to become product teams and work customer-centric and Agile.

  • What earlier students say about this training

    “Gick kurs som du höll på Crisp en gång i tiden (Product discovery med Lean UX) och vill bara säga att jag hittills inte gått en kurs som gett mig sån konkret utväxling efteråt. Den förändrade både mitt sätt att jobba och mitt team. Så tack!”
    – Jonna Samuelsson
    Agile Change Management, Max Mathisen

    “Det var en toppenkurs som gav mycket inspiration och många handfasta tips! Bra med ett case att följa och göra övningar kring genom hela kursen. Härligt med så få slides och att vi istället gick runt i rummet och pratade kring utskrivna bilder. På så sätt blir det mer dynamik och man somnar inte i stolen. Du är en duktig utbildare, både pedagogisk och kompetent inom ämnet.  Stort tack!”
    – Catrine Björkegren
    Agil Consultant, Frontit 

    “The training gave me a lot of inspiration and creativity with help by goals, personas, and workflows without not designing anything. The focus is on how the design can support different customers’ key goals, behaviors, and feelings dependent on where they are at the moment. A true a-ha experience but at the same time so obvious. Two really interesting days with a lot of different workshops. This training took me and my employer a big step closer to the customer. I truly recommend it!”
    – Liza Hansson
    Designer since 2001. Communication and Digital media at Agria Insurance for Animals

    With clear, firm, and very practical advice together with effective workshops, methods and Agile processes Mia shares her expertise in how to develop customer-centric product design in a simple and inspiring way. I really feel that I will get used of what I learned during these two days in my work as a product designer”
