Tobias Mayer

Tobias has been involved in the Scrum world since 2004 and is famous for working with giants such as Yahoo, McAfee and McGraw-Hill. He was among the first twenty-five people, worldwide, certified to teach Scrum by Ken Schwaber, its co-founder. Skilled as a developer, tester and engineering manager, Tobias also has a background in publishing, theatre arts, and community service work. He skilfully blends this unusual mix of experiences when teaching Scrum, creating a lively and engaging experience.
Tobias blogs regularly on LinkedIn and Medium and is known as the creator of AgileLib.Net, the world’s foremost collection of Agile resources. He is also the author of the highly acclaimed, and somewhat controversial book, The People’s Scrum, in which he calls you to:

“…stop being victims of process and start being warriors of change”

About this CPO training

In the course of this one-day event, participants will learn how to be more effective in a highly creative and highly collaborative role such as Product Owner. A myth has developed in our work culture that the product manager/owner is the person responsible for writing (and knowing!) all the user requirements, and is solely accountable for the success of a product. However, to achieve greatness, meaningful collaboration is needed with developers, users, designers, testers and other stakeholders. Here, participants will be trained to deeply engage one another through a series of outside the box methods, such as visual exploration, confrontation, physical exercises, storytelling and real life examples, leading to clear purpose and well-understood, well-crafted product requirements. Good collaborators never compromise, instead they discover new pathways, discard old ideas, dream new dreams, and join forces to make these visions a reality. Take a step closer to mastering the elusive skill of collaboration by learning from the proven master!

This CPO training
is for you if:

  • You are in charge of product development (as Product Owner, Manager etc.), but feel overwhelmed with responsibility, as if it is all up to you
  • You are in charge of product development (as Product Owner, Manager etc.), but feel powerless and almost like an administrative assistant, because you have little decision-making authority
  • You struggle with communication in the workplace and often feel confused or bewildered by the ineffectiveness of information sharing practices
  • You work in Scrum in any role (e.g. Scrum Master) and want to gain a better understanding of the Product Owner role and learn proven techniques for effective collaboration
  • You feel that your creativity is stifled by traditional work practices and need new skills to bring out your best work
  • The skills you learned in other certification courses, MBAs and other degree programs, or even in your job, are not working well enough to let you achieve your goals
  • You want to stop being the victim of process and start being the warrior of change!

Why attend?

Effective communication and deep collaboration are elusive skills – learn from the master who honed his craft in giants such as Yahoo, McAfee and McGraw-Hill
