    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. Participants gain practical tools and techniques for engaging with software delivery teams. 


    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). 


    • Boost Product Owner capabilities
    • Optimize Agile teams
    • Use Scrum to its fullest!
    • Enhance planning and scheduling
    • Gain practical, proven techniques
    • Improve estimating skills and results
    • Maximize delivery capabilities     
    • Reduce risk       
    • Improve ROI       
    • Leverage proven experience


    A portion of the course will be spent introducing Scrum, therefore, there is no prerequisite to this course.


    Participants who complete the course successfully will be designated “Certified Scrum Product Owner” (CSPO). This certification includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where additional Certified ScrumMaster-only material and information are available.


    Food and refreshments are provided.

    Comments from some of Jim's previous students:

    • “Jim shows a genuine passion for the Scrum methodology. From the initial introduction, you can tell very easily that Jim is a real expert at Scrum. He takes an in-depth subject and breaks it down into understandable, realistic, and helpful lessons. He does more than just teach the subject. He gives you real world examples. He walks you through hands-on lessons, and all the while, he's there to answer any and every question with as much honesty and service orientation as possible. Jim brings personal caring service and an expert level of knowledge to his classes. I am forever grateful for Jim's leadership and teaching abilities."
    • "I've been in industry now for almost 20 years and in all that time, I've had only 3 or 4 training classes that I thought made a meaningful impact on my job or career. Jim's class is one of those. What makes his expertise on agile technologies meaningful is his hands-on experience. He has the practical experience and expertise to back up the theory. Combined with his witty and dynamic delivery of the material, it became a powerful impact to my job and has afforded me skills and techniques that I now use every day."
    • "Before attending the class, I thought I had a good general understand of the Agile methodology and Scrum, but Jim offered me much more. There was never a dull moment in the 2-day class, I thoroughly enjoyed his class and the fact it added value to my knowledge."
    • "[Jim] is one of those unique individuals capable of combining textbook theory with real-world experience in order to effectively convey Agile Methodologies. I thoroughly enjoyed his style of training and any company would benefit from Jim's expertise, sense of humor, and dedication.”
