    This two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner certification course provides the jumping off point for you to take on, or improve at, the hardest role in Scrum, being a Product Owner. Being an effective Product Owner is difficult, but, if executed well, it can be incredibly rewarding as speed to market and value will grow substantially. On completion of the course you are registered as a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) with a two year membership in the Scrum Alliance (www.scrumalliance.org) where valuable materials and information are available exclusively to CSPOs.

    You will learn the essential concepts and tools of Scrum, understanding how the Product Owner role operates within the context of product management and the Product Manager role, and how to interact with the development team. At the strategic level, you will learn how to articulate a clear vision with measurable business objectives, create forward looking release plans that sequence features to market to maximize ROI within the context of the product plans. At the tactical level, you will learn how to effectively groom the product backlog, execute releases planning sessions, and track and report progress.

    This course is taught by leading agile practitioners with decades of real-world industry experience at companies ranging from small businesses to the Fortune 100. Exercises, demonstrations, facilitated discussions, case studies, tool and template examples and more are interwoven throughout to illustrate the principles being taught in a comprehensive fashion interactively tailored to the class’s needs, based on real world experience, not ivory-tower theory.
