This course is suitable for anyone working as a Product Owner, business analyst, functional analyst, tester or project manager in a Scrum environment. It is also very interesting for people in the product, sales and marketing departments of an organization, as well as other interested managers and directors. Since the Product Owner role overlaps with the typical responsibilities of a project manager, we highly encourage project managers and project leads to follow this course if they want to implement Scrum for their projects.
