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.

ITIL vs DevOps course is updated

We strictly follow the recommendations and feedbacks of our students. And now 3 practice assignments are added to the course.

Now each student can make his/her own exercises according to his/her IT organization specific features and discuss the case with the trainer at the course forum.

Join the training with a lifelong access for $9.99 only.

Sprints and Kanban Boards in Microsoft Project

Microsft(r) Project(r) Online new version contains Sprint tools, and Kanban boards for Agile teams. We suppose it’s a very valuable improvement for Agile oriented developers, virtual teams, and also for a large-scale projects. In a large project top-down planning is implemented in a waterfall manner, while packages are implemented by small agile teams.

The option is not available in a standard Microsoft Project in the Office package yet.
