Certified Scrum Product Owner
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.
In this two-day course, you will learn how to be a Scrum Product Owner. Scrum increases the emphasis on assessing and driving business value through close collaboration with the delivery team. The Scrum Product Owner establishes the crucial interaction between the business and the delivery team that improves productivity within an Agile organization. Product Owners who assume this critical role have the ability to guide the team to gain the full benefit of Agile delivery. This training is interactive and highly experiential.

When the capabilities of the Product Owner are optimized, an Agile team will experience immediate benefits that lead to improved effectiveness and customer satisfaction as well as increased return on investment (ROI).
