This course is meticulously designed to equip participants with the expertise to understand their product’s essence, master the Product Backlog, engage effectively with stakeholders, promote transparency, and make data-driven decisions. With sessions ranging from stakeholder motivations to the intricacies of the Product Backlog and empirical decision-making, attendees will gain invaluable insights, irrespective of whether they’re Product Owners, Scrum Masters, or Product Managers.

Our curriculum, rooted in real-world scenarios, ensures immediate applicability in professional settings. Under the guidance of experienced Professional Scrum Trainers, participants will benefit from a globally consistent and high-calibre learning experience. Upon completion, attendees will be eligible for the Professional Scrum Product Backlog Mastery assessment, marking a significant milestone in their Scrum journey.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Product Essence Comprehension: Dive deep into the core of your product. Understand not just its features, but its soul, its purpose. By the end of our sessions, you’ll have a panoramic view of your product, its goals, and the strategic roadmap to achieve them.
  2. Product Backlog Proficiency: The Product Backlog is more than just a list; it’s a strategic tool. Learn to craft, refine, and sequence it in a manner that aligns perfectly with your product’s vision and stakeholder expectations.
  3. Stakeholder Engagement Mastery: Stakeholders are the compass by which a product navigates. Master the art of identifying, understanding, and communicating with them, ensuring their needs and insights are woven into the fabric of the Product Backlog.
  4. Championing Transparency: In the world of Scrum, transparency isn’t just a value; it’s a guiding principle. Discover how to make your Product Backlog a beacon of clarity, ensuring all involved parties have a clear and unified vision.
  5. Empirical Decision Making: In an ever-evolving market, decisions grounded in empirical data can be the difference between success and stagnation. Learn to harness this data, turning it into a competitive advantage.

Venue Details

Join us for a virtual experience via Microsoft Teams and Mural!

Virtual Classroom Details

  • Each session lasts between 60-75 minutes with short breaks of 5-10 minutes.
  • We've chosen not to record the workshop to foster an open environment.
  • We cap our workshop at 12 participants for a more intimate experience.
  • Tools you'll be using: Microsoft Teams, Mural, and Mighty Networks.
  • Online learning is almost on par with in-person sessions. Just remember, collaborating online might take a tad longer.

Golden Rules

  • Keep those cameras and mics on.
  • Punctuality is key.
  • No multitasking with meetings, calls, or emails during sessions.
  • Stay aware and let others have their moment.
  • Stick to the agenda. If you need extra guidance, there's a free coaching session for each participant.

Inclusive Features

  • Live captions are available in any language supported by Microsoft Teams for our hearing-impaired friends and those who need a little extra help.
  • After the class, join the "naked Agility with Martin Hinshelwood Community" to connect with like-minded individuals.

Payment & Cancellation

  • Payment is upfront, with no exceptions.
  • UK clients, please note there's an additional VAT.
  • We're not liable for any costs from cancellations or rescheduling.
  • We need a certain number of participants to run the class.
  • Rarely, courses might be cancelled due to insufficient participants. We're not responsible for any related costs.
  • You can cancel up to the online ticketing deadline. Refunds might have some deductions.
  • Postponing? Give us at least three business days' notice. Otherwise, it's considered a cancellation with no refund.
  • Electronic manuals and assessment fees are covered. Physical manuals? Not so much.

Setting Up Your Virtual Space

Participating in virtual classes requires some prep. Here's what we recommend:

  • Equipment: A computer that can run Mural and a device for Microsoft Teams. Multiple monitors are a plus but not a must.
  • MS Teams: Install it from here. It's best to use the app on Mac, Windows, or mobile rather than the web interface.
  • Appearance: We've seen it all - shadows, half-faces, up-nose, and more. Being visible and present is crucial. Think of how you'd present yourself in a physical meeting.
  • Camera: A good quality one is essential. The Elgato Facecam comes highly recommended.
  • Lighting: Ensure you're well-lit. Consider getting a face light, especially if you're in darker environments.
  • Microphone: Laptop mics aren't the best. Consider investing in a quality one, like the Elgato Wave or Yeti Blue Microphone. Use Krisp Noise Canceling to prevent background noise.
  • Background: A wall behind you works best if you're using a virtual background. Curious about my background? Just ask!
  • Attire: Wear what makes you comfortable. Whether it's formal wear, casuals, or even jammies, as long as it's appropriate, you're good to go.

Remember, the key is to be present and engaged. Let's make the most of this virtual experience together!
