    What's a Certified Scrum Product Owner Course?

    Chanakya, the Indian Scholor said “Before you start some work, ask 3 questions.

    1. Why am I doing it?

    2. What the results might be?

    3. Will I be successful?

    Think deeply and go ahead only if you find satisfactory answers”. Being a Product Owner is exactly answering Chanakya's questions while building a Product or Service. 

    What’s a Product? A Product is something that you build to help your customers solve a Problem or achieve certain goal. What’s Value?. Value is when an end user who buys your product or service is able to achieve the goal that they intended to achieve using your Product or Service. 

    Who is Product Owner? A Product owner is someone who understands the customers who buy the product, end users who use the product and sponsors who invests in the product and priortizes the work done by the development team to maximize the value of money and time spent by them(Customers, end users and sponsors).
