ICAgile Enterprise Product Owner – Guaranteed to Run
How do we balance the holistic view of product value creation with the delivery of enterprise value? And how do we make sure we are building the right product at the right time for the enterprise?
This course is designed for senior Product Owners and Product Managers to extend their view of product ownership and management to the enterprise perspective. In this advanced program you will analyse and understand the holistic value of an initiative in terms of customer value, enterprise value and strategic alignment.
