Benefit Realization management Guide

The Guide is available free of charge for a limited time period at the PMI website.

 

DevOps Product Owner certification

The DevOps Agile skills association renewed the certification roadmap, and the 3rd tier (Leadership level) certifications are available now. I have passed the Product Owner certification one of the first, and want to share a brief experience about this prestigious certification.

The Product Owner role is a leading role to ensure the Product vision, roadmap and backlog, and finally the product value to a customer.

The DASA association actively drives training and certification activities in this area.

The PO certification exam includes 40 questions (in fact, not very complicated, especially if a candidate is good with Scrum and Agile). Each question is followed by 4 answer options, one of those is correct. 26 correct answers (65%) lead to success.

I passed the exam at the first attempt. It seems to me that the certification marks that junior PO is ready for his/her journey.

As any other certification it helps to structure candidate’s skills and practical experience.

Demands to a corporate Project/Portfolio management system

We recommend the bright in-depth research by our ResearchGate colleagues. Their work deals with the fuzzy analysis of demands of a corporate Portfolio/Project management system.

In fact this work is a very rare attempt of scientific mathematics (fuzzy logic) based analysis instead of expert one concerning information systems of a corporate level.
