Agile Product Management Basics – Webinar

This webinar discusses the fundamentals of Product Manager and Product Owner Role in Agile Teams.

Agile development methodologies have the potential to deliver higher-quality software, more quickly and more often.On commercial software projects, product managers are typically responsible for understanding market/customer needs, defining the “right” product, and driving business processes that eventually bring in revenue.

What does a product manager do, and how does this change with agile? Is a product owner different from a product manager? How do up-front requirements relate to customer showcases and frequent user feedback? Rich Mironov will take us through what development managers should know about agile product management. You’ll learn:

  • What product managers do, how agile expands this, and why development teams only see one part of the product management role
  • Why market risks outweigh technical risks
  • Core skills for your product managers and product owners

Rich will draw on a wealth of real-world experience help attendees build more successful, more profitable products.
