Certified Scrum Product Owner Training
Excella Consulting is excited to announce our new and improved Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training course. Unlike the CSPO course we have offered in the past, Excella's new CSPO class is a completely redesigned course that goes into more advanced concepts in the areas of providing vision, requirements, planning and the Product Owner role. These concepts are presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, games and video interwoven throughout the class.
This course will also provide a deep-dive in the modern product innovation method, Innovation Games. Innovation Games are a collection of qualitative research and problem solving techniques, based on the collaborative facilitation of customers, colleagues, partners and the community at large. The techniques are both open ended and more focused methods for achieving actionable insights and results.
