BCS EXIN Practitioner Certificate in Agile Scrum Product Owner

An Agile Scrum Product Owner certificate ensures that a candidate can successfully lead Agile Scrum projects in the context of an overall Service and Product Lifecycle, in a way that adds the most value possible for the customer. In order to do this, the Product Owner provides direction, makes final decisions, and ensures that the Team is aimed at the right goals.

The Product Owner is actively engaged with, communicates well with, and listens carefully to arguments from the Team. Within the context of the organisation’s larger business objectives, the Product Owner provides the vision, but also the boundaries within which this vision must be realised. This is achieved by creating, maintaining and prioritising the business value driven Product Backlog. It is the Product Owner’s responsibility to make sure the project earns a good Return on Investment. A good Product Owner understands the business and the market, is the Voice of the Customer (internal or external), manages the product or service lifecycle and balances the need for both functional and non-functional requirements.

After successfully completing the course and passing the exam Candidates should be able to demonstrate the ability to analyse, understand and explain Agile concepts in the following areas:
• The Agile way of thinking
• The Product Owner role
• Managing the Product Backlog
• Complex Projects
• Adding Value.

Who is it for?

The Agile way of thinking is best known in the field of software development and testing, but the principles are increasingly being applied in other types of projects and it is fast becoming a regular project management technique. Scrum is the most used Agile methodology and is suitable for all professionals looking to keep their knowledge up to date with the latest developments in the fields of IT and Project Management, particularly those leading or participating in projects.

The Product Owner role focuses on bringing Value for the Customer and Value for the Business, through Project Management techniques. In particular, the certification is suitable for professionals working in the areas of Project Management, Test Management, Software Development, IT Service Management and Business Management.
