Certified SAFe® Product Owner/Product Manager (POPM)

What skills do you need to deliver value in an Agile enterprise? The SAFe® Product Owner and SAFe® Product Manager (POPM) course covers the tactical responsibilities of these roles in the Agile Release Train (ART). The course and resulting certification give you the guidance and tools to work effectively in remote environments with distributed teams.

Learn how product owners and product managers should work together to achieve the best possible customer and business outcomes. The SAFe POPM course will teach you how to adopt a customer-centric approach to building products, using the Scaled Agile Framework® to deliver more value, faster. Topics covered in this course include the daily role of POs and PMs; collaborating with engineering teams and business stakeholders; how to write epics, features, and stories; and how to design, prioritize, build, test, and deliver products with increased productivity and higher quality.

Participants will receive an overview of the Scaled Agile Framework™ and the Lean-Agile mindset, as well as a deep understanding of the specific activities, tools, and mechanics involved in delivering value to the enterprise.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be well-equipped to pass the SAFe® PO/PM certification exam and will have the skills to write Epics, Capabilities, Features, and User Stories in the context of SAFe.

Additionally, participants will have a solid foundation for effectively managing backlogs and programs in a Lean-Agile enterprise.
