    Course Material

    Participants will receive course materials (not books) at the course. The CSPO course was formulated to train and certify Product Owners and is used worldwide for Product Owner training. In addition, participants should obtain (at their own expense) Agile Project Management with Scrum, by Ken Schwaber, which is required reading for the course. You may also wish to obtain the primary Scrum book, Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Schwaber and Beedle, on which the course is based.

    Of course, there will be updated material and training exercises in the course which you cannot get from books. The entire syllabus will be made available upon registering for the course so you can look it over and bring it with you to the sessions.

  • Who Should Attend

    The CSPO is for managers, analysts, and product managers. For anyone interested in working on or with a Scrum team in a business or customer side role, this course is suited for you. You will leave with solid knowledge of how and why Scrum works. Through practical, hands-on exercises and small-group discussion you will be prepared to plan your first (or next) sprint immediately after this class.
