Certified Scrum Product Owner
3 days: 14–15 May + 11 June
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.
The Scrum Product Owner must lead the project strategically, collaborate with customers and team on a daily basis, and manage the business value. The Scrum Product Owner takes back the accountability from the traditional project manager for delivering the right solution to the customer and end-user. The CSPO course will provide you with the core of skills to support this new and awesome responsibility.
For 2012 our CSPO course has been extended to three days following a "2+1" day format. This means participants will attend two concecutive classroom days, then return to practice the skills they have learned for four weeks. After this they will return to the classroom for a third day where they will share and deepen their learning.
