    Learn the essentials of working as a Product Owner in this two-day class. A special Scrum community event will be organised for day 3 with the goal of networking and sharing Scrum related experience.

    Scrum is a simple but powerful agile management framework. Key to its success is the role of the Product Owner: The Product Owner steers and guides the Scrum project, bridges the gap between end customers, business and development/IT and is responsible for the return on investment (ROI). The Product Owner combines the traditional project manager and the product manager roles in one person. 

    This two-day interactive Scrum Product Owner course equips you with all you need to know about being an effective Product Owner. At the end of the class, you will understand how you can leverage Scrum to optimise value creation and customer satisfaction. You will be able to create a realistic release plan, stock the product backlog, write user stories and refine requirements. You will also know how you can increase productivity, level the workload, and steer the project proactively.

    In addition, please note that this course leads to 16 Professional Development Units (PDUs) as approved by the PMI.

    This course has been certified by the Scrum Alliance. Successful completion of this course leads to delegates obtaining the Certified Scrum Product Owner certification as authorised by the Scrum Alliance. In addition, delegates receive 2 years' free membership to the Scrum Alliance.

     

    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.
