Project Manager

As a Product Owner, you can work as a Project Manager. The Project Manager owns the entire project and is accountable for following the process and smoothening the workflow. A Project Manager, just like a Product Owner, acts as a bridge between the team members and the stakeholders by closely working with them.

Business Analyst

Every business needs a responsible individual for gathering and analyzing the requirements from the Stakeholders.

Good Trainer. We went through various examples and scenarios. Good training material was provided. All these helped pass the assessment. We could have had a little more time in course training.

Very interactive session with facilities to collaborate even during the virtual session. Insightful as it also dealt with what are and aren't the responsibilities of a product owner and promoted PO-like thinking.
