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.

Em and Claire had really good practical insights for concepts discussed on the SAFe model that we could take away to try out in our environment as Product owners. They also had the skills, knowledge and the right tools to be conducting the SAFe POPM class on a remote basis, given the prevailing lockdowns in Melbourne. Several group activities were conducted throughout the two days that kept the us really engaged with the rest of the attendees while being able to learn from their experiences.
