DASA DevOps Product Owner

Learn to understand the importance of a Product Owner in a DevOps project!

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 ex-tended set of requirements that a product owner faces when teams start to take on both Dev and Ops responsibilities. The program covers traditional Agile and Scrum concepts and capa-bilities 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.
