During this two-day SAFe Product Owner/Product Manager training course, attendees gain an in-depth understanding of how to effectively perform their role in the Agile Release Train (ART) as it delivers value through Program Increments. Participants that complete the course will be eligible to sit the SAFe POPM certification exam.

Attendees explore how to apply Lean thinking to decompose Epics into Features and Stories, refine Features and Stories, manage Program and Team backlogs, and plan and execute Iterations and Program Increments. Attendees also discover how the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture contribute to the relentless improvement of the ART.

Following the overwhelming success of our online SAFe Product Owner/Product Manager training, we plan to continue to offer public training online to make it accessible to our clients around Australia and across the globe. You can learn about our approach to remote SAFe training here.

My first Product Owner Product Manager training led by most amazing faculties Emma Sharrock and Melissa Hay!
It was a two-day training but I must say that it was the most effective, knowledgeable and interactive virtual session I could think of. Not for even a second did I feel bored or tired! Absolutely amazing!
Most Importantly, Learning about how SAFe works in the world of software engineering has been amazing experience and looking forward to enhance the process to fully adopt SAFe way of working.
On top of it, Meeting new people is always an exciting experience for me!
Thank you WTW for this opportunity to enhance my skillset.
