    Too many products fail because of poor direction and goals—
    learn how to avoid being another statistic.
    Weak Product Ownership is the leading cause of failure I see with Scrum Teams. The Agile Pain Relief Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) course will give you the tools to improve the odds for your Team and have fun while doing it.

    In an Agile organization the Product Owner holds a key role in determining which features are added to products and the order and priority of feature development.

    Using Scrum and Agile planning tools, the Product Owner works with their Scrum team to lead the development process by creating and managing an efficient backlog, managing product scope, working with stakeholders, estimating budgets and release dates, and tracking team progress to deliver better quality products on time.

    This 2-day Certified Scrum Product Owner training course led by Certified Scrum Trainer Mark Levison provides the tools for success with a blend of direct instruction, interactive group work, and practical exercises to gain skills, techniques, and experience in the Product Owner role.

    Upon successful completion of the Certified Scrum Product Owner course, participants receive Scrum Product Owner Certification and membership to the Scrum Alliance.

    • 50% of Product Features are Never Used

      We spend two days in interactive and workshop using practical exercises and your Vision to build your Product Backlog. You will learn how your Scrum would work to build the product you see.
