With over 10 years of experience as a product owner, implementation and project manager, he will share his vision from the customer's (or user's) perspective during our sessions.

He will take us through the scaled agile framework, among other things.

Whitepaper: Succesful and happy product owners

Good product owners are scarce. In 2022, there is an enormous demand for people with experience within a certain sector and who have the demanding list of skills that are required of a product owner. Moreover, product owners know better than anyone how to find out what is required from the business, and gradually convert a vision into reality. That is why they must be able to do their work motivated, effectively and enthusiastically. In this whitepaper we give 8 tips on how to do that.
