The Product Owner Learning Path aims to introduce learners to the Scrum project management methodology, as well as a more in-depth look at the Product Owner role. The modules take the learner through all of the key areas of Scrum, as well as some of the other Agile concepts that underpin Scrum to be able to understand and implement scrum as a working methodology within their organisation. The aim of the course is to enable the learner to be able to be able to pass a Level 1 Product Owner certification. The learning path starts with an introduction to Scrum and Agile, and aims to get the learner to understand the principles and values of the methodology.

The second looks at the artefacts that enable a scrum team, and how each the scrum team members interact with them.

The third module covers the Scrum Roles that comprise a scrum team.

The fourth looks at the 5 Scrum Events that occur. Their purpose is examined, as well as how they should be used by the Scrum Team.

The fifth focuses on the Product Owner, and what they’re specialisms within the team, including Product Backlog Refinement, Empiricism-Based management, and creating an inspiring Product Vision, amongst others.

The final Module examines some other Scrum and Agile concepts, including some additional methodologies and techniques that can be implemented. Whilst not necessary, learners may find them useful.

The learning path ends with next steps, and provides directions on how the learner can get certified as a Scrum Master.
