SAFe Product Owner / Product Manager: All you need to knowThe Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is an increasingly popular approach that is utilised by organisations to scale their Agile practices beyond the single team, up to enterprise level (ie teams-of-teams).

In this blog, Andrea Darabos, SAFe Programme Consultant (SPC) talks about the benefits of agil8’s SAFe Product Owner / Product Manager course, including what makes it a unique offering and who should attend.


The benefits of SAFe Product Owner / Product Manager

This role-specific SAFe course deep-dives into portfolio and product management related roles and competencies in a large Agile enterprise.

Unlike other Agile courses which focus on agility and product ownership in a single team, or a few teams, context – this course specifically assists delegates with lean data-driven, Agile portfolio and product management and technical product management (enablers) at scale.

Attending the SAFe Product Owner / Product Manager course, will equip individuals with the ability to:

  • Identify requirements and customer needs at a large portfolio, program and multi-team level using a hypothesis testing driven approach
  • Prioritise “projects” (i.e. large pieces of work) and create alignment with a multitude of stakeholders
  • Work with technical enablers and large architectural change programmes as part of your delivery
  • Understand the options for structuring the roles and responsibilities for the Portfolio Management and Product Management Team when you have a large number of global users markets or a set of complex products in a portfolio
  • Use a muti-tier Kanban system to effectively balance demand with delivery, and create predictability on an enterprise scale

Who is this course aimed at?

Delivered over 2-days, this interactive course is ideal for Product Owners, Product Managers and Technical Solution and System Architects, who are currently, or aiming to, work in an Agile way within a large-scale environment (eg. develop a product or a portfolio of products with 100+ people and global stakeholders).
In addition to the above roles, people who will benefit most from this course also work in roles such as:

  • Portfolio Managers
  • Program Managers
  • Enterprise Architects, System and Solution Architects
  • Business Analysts
  • Solution Managers
  • PMO roles
