2. Product Ownership Course
Last January, Apium Academy organized the first edition of the Product Ownership Course in Barcelona. This course provides detailed information about the role of the Product Owner, a position with high demand today. The program reviews the different attributions and responsibilities of a Product Owner in an Agile environment. Students know and implement technical aspects such as Backlog management, User Stories, prioritization and soft skills such as communication, expectations management and leadership, among others.
The course teacher, Ramon Felip, is Apiumhub’s Product Owner. Here you may find the testimonials.
The next edition of the Product Ownership Course will begin on June 2, 2020.
