SAFe Product Owner/Product Manager with POPM Certification
Develop the skillsets needed to guide the delivery of value in a Lean enterprise—and learn about the activities, tools, and mechanics used to manage backlogs and programs—by becoming a SAFe® 4 Product Owner/Product Manager (POPM). During this two-day course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the Agile Release Train (ART), how it delivers value, and what you can do to effectively perform their role.

Finally, you learn about the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate as Product Owner and Product Manager, and what it takes to relentlessly improve the ART.
