Do you know how to lead an Agile project or product development initiative? Every Agile project needs a Product Owner who has an understanding of:
- what needs to be achieved and what is valuable
- what are the critical business criteria and constraints
- what are the relative priorities of the various possible feature ideas
On this CSPO course, you will learn the key fundamentals to take that ownership and successfully lead your product initiative.
Product Owners are responsible for the vision and the value delivered by the product. They also have to communicate and coordinate the work with the various stakeholders around their product. And while the team will help them to understand the technology, its constraints and opportunities, and to design a technically and functionally excellent product, it is still maybe the hardest single role in the Scrum team.
The Certified Scrum Product Owner course will help a Product Owner to understand Scrum and the Product Owner role. It will give understanding and practical tools to take both ownership of their product and benefit from the opportunities the Scrum framework gives to maximize the value of the work being done. The course will ensure that the fundamental concepts of Scrum are correctly understood, with appropriate focus on the Product Owner role. During the second day, practical exercises will introduce collaborative approaches to creating, prioritizing, and refining the Product Backlog, and steering the releases and progress of the product development effort. At the end, there will be time to cover elective topics suggested by the participants.
The course is built using modern learning techniques and engages the participants in active dialogue with the trainer and each other. The plentiful exercises allow participants to actively train their “learning muscles” in interactive and challenging setting. Every class is a little different, because the participants and their needs will direct the topics and conversations. Petri Heiramo is an experienced trainer and coach, and you’re welcome to challenge him with even your toughest questions.
Though each CSPO course varies depending on the instructor, all Certified Scrum Product Owner courses focus on Scrum from a product owner's perspective. Graduates will receive the CSPO designation. All CSPO course are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.
