1: Taught by a European based expert in Scaling and Product strategy
This class is taught by Gabrielle Benefield, CEO of Evolve Beyond and a well-known figure in the global Agile community. Gabrielle is an author of The Scrum Primer, one of the most widely read introductions to Agile development, as well as the Flexible Contract model, an open-source contract for Agile and Lean projects. Gabrielle has provided Agile training and consulting to some of the largest companies in the world, including Wells Fargo bank, UTC Aerospace, Sony Computer Entertainment, Lonely Planet, Accenture, Cognizant British Gas and Optus Telecommunications.
2: Our students love the training!
97% of our students say "the Evolve Beyond CSPO class was worth the time and money - even aside from the value of the certification". And 98% said they were likely to recommend it to a friend or colleague! We get comments like this one from Theresa Smith all the time: "It really was the best course I have ever been on, and I may even be including the 500 odd courses I have trained myself in my past!". Or from Jeff Sutherland, the inventor of Scrum "Gabrielle is one of the top Scrum experts in the world and;one who gets overwhelmingly positive feedback for her in-depth knowledge and engaging style. She has provided training and coaching for hundreds of organisations worldwide and is the only trainer I work with in the United Kingdom."
3: Real-world knowledge you need to succeed
The course is about using Scrum to deliver powerful results and success with real-world projects, especially challenging ones! We cover distributed / multi-location Scrum, using Scrum with fixed-price / fixed-date projects, project estimation and delivery-date planning and tracking in Scrum, Scrum tools, and scaling Scrum for large projects or organizations.
4: Lowest price guarantee, corporate discounts and unemployed discounts
We believe our prices are the best available, but if you can find a lower price for a CSPO course in the same city, we guarantee to match it. (Details here.) We often have your company setup for a corporate discount so please contact us to get the code, or let us know and we can set one up for your company. If you are in-between jobs we will help you out further. Contact email@example.com for more information.
5: If you are not 100% satisfied with the course, it's free!
If you are not fully satisfied with the course, we will refund 100% of what you paid. (Details here.)
6: Includes Gabrielle Benefield’s book "The Little Book of Scrum - the essential Scrum guide"
All attendees at our public CSPO courses receive a complimentary copy of Gabrielle Benefield’s The Little Book of Scrum - the essential Scrum guide. This book has been used as the standard guide to Scrum in many large organisations.
7: Great food and great coffee
We provide a kickstart to the day with our breakfast (pastries, baguettes, fruit, yoghurt and muffins), then a good lunch. Our attendees like Manav say "I've never eaten as well on any class before and I love having real coffee on tap".
8: You get full online access to class materials + exercises + useful resources... forever!
Unlike many classes, we provide full electronic access to the course materials, which you can use to train your colleagues. You get the course slides, plus many of the exercises, along with step-by-step instructions for leading them. Plus you get access to a variety of useful Scrum resources and templates. And your access is valid forever - so as new materials are added, you will get access to those as well.
9: You earn 15 PDU's from PMI, towards PMP or PMI Agile Certification
Our CSPO course includes 15 contact hours of training, which can be submitted to PMI for PDU credit if you are a PMP or working towards PMI Agile Certification.
10: Last but not least... you get Planning Poker cards!
Every attendee gets two packs of high-quality Planning Poker cards, enough for a team of 8 people. Our cards include printed instructions for use and four colors per deck.
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 courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers.
