In a DevOps environment, the Product Owner is a critical leadership role and responsible for managing the full lifecycle of a product from concept to grave. The DASA DevOps Product Owner program expands on traditional agile product owner programs and deals with the extended set of requirements that a product owner faces when teams start to take on both Dev and Ops responsibilities.
Why this DASA DevOps Product Owner training?
The program covers traditional Agile and Scrum concepts and capabilities in the context of DevOps. As a result, this training course is ideal for new and aspiring product owners and exciting for experienced product owners who are keen to understand how their role is evolving as a result of DevOps.
How does this program relate to other product owner certifications on the market?
Typically, product owner certifications have a strong focus on Agile and Scrum, and the software development lifecycle. When software development teams started working with the Scrum model, the product owner role became an important and influential role in every development team. With DevOps, the scope has been expanded with Ops becoming part of the scope. A DevOps product owner is now not only in charge of developing new features, but is also responsible for incidents that occur as well as regular operations work that needs to be performed. The number of stakeholders is expanding and product lifecycle management is becoming more important.
