The Product Owner (PO) is the most critical role in Agile Scrum. They are responsible to talk with the business, understanding their wants and needs, and then collaborating with the Development Team to create a product – a piece of software, a service, or a process – that satisfies those identified needs.
In this course, we prepare you for that Product Owner position. We’ll teach you about the mindset, the responsibilities, the activities, the skills, best practices, and the core concepts you’ll need to know to be a successful Product Owner (PO).
Why become a Product Owner in the first place?
1. Potential Earnings – Let’s be honest it’s the main reason we work in the first place. So, you’ll be happy to hear that a typical Product Owner (PO) earns over $100,000 USD per year. And that is only the average. Work hard, continue to increase the value you provide through study and training, and just imagine how much you could end up making!
2. Job Growth – With the abundance of organizations adopting Agile and Scrum, the Product Owner role has benefited with a 24% annual growth (US) and being declared an emerging job by LinkedIn. There is no better time than now to learn the fundamentals needed to be a Product Owner.
3. Career Springboard – The skills you learn as a Product Owner are crucial to a host of many other professions, everything from Business to IT. This career path isn’t just a job, it’s an investment in your future, no matter where life takes you.
4. Fulfilling Outcomes – Being able to positively influence and make decisions that shape the value a product provides to customers, generates a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. And this is probably a big reason the average Product Owner is highly satisfied with their job.
5. It’s Never Boring – Business and customer needs are always changing and evolving, and your product needs to stay up-to-speed. This could mean new features, a change in the workflow, an updated customer experience, or adjusting your product to meet the needs of a new market segment. It is never boring because there is always additional value that can be provided.
So if you’re looking for a challenging and rewarding career, I highly encourage you to take a serious look into becoming a Product Owner!

The BA Guide’s TEACH, SHOW, DO
This course makes use of The BA Guide’s TEACH, SHOW, DO technique – a method I’ve developed over my years of experience in the industry training and managing business analysis and product owner professionals. This technique will help ensure you with total comprehension of the topic at hand and maximum information retention long after you've completed the course.
TEACH – You first learn the concept, in detail, from the ground up. But I won’t simply teach you the concept in isolation – you’ll learn HOW and WHEN to use it too.
SHOW – Once you fully understand the concept, we enhance that by walking you step-by-step through real-world examples – so you can see exactly how the concept would pan out if you were to apply it in the real world.
DO – Firmly cement everything you’ve learned so far and put your new knowledge to the test by completing the included activities and quizzes. Validate you’ve fully understood the concept and greatly increase your ability to retain the information you’ve learned.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” – Benjamin Franklin
