Why do you want to be a Scrum Product Owner?

Most Product Owners want to get better results from the Scrum Teams. Better products, better return on investment, projects that are on-time on on-budget, higher team performance, happier stakeholders, and more engaged staff! How can you contribute to achieve great results and have more fun at work?

Why do you want to learn to be a Scrum Product Owner with Peter Stevens?

How many Scrum Trainers have actually been a Scrum Product Owner in a real-life project? How many have taken a web portal online or seen their app published on the app store? And how many live in Zurich?

Peter Stevens has. “My goal is for you to be successful and to have fun, so I take the long view. Your course is the start of a process, not a one-time transaction. So I help you get started, then enable continuing opportunities for you learn, build knowledge, and share experience. As a Zurich-based trainer, I can enable support and community that no traveling trainer can match.”
